    The food was good and a nice variety. The history tour was satisfactory, but not great. I didn't come away learning a ton about Georgetown. I would be willing to try another tour. I have been on a lot of historical tours so I had a lot to compare it to.

    Hi Molly Ann, Thanks for taking the time to write in about your experience! I understand that for a tour connoisseur such as yourself, expectations are quite high, and I'm sorry to hear our guides weren't able to impart new knowledge on this one. I'll be sure to pass your feedback along as I know they are always looking to improve as well. Let us know if you feel like exploring another city with us! Cheers, Inah
    Very fun afternoon! Robert was terrific tour guide, made us all feel very comfortable with each other, the walking, in restaurants. Even though I once lived in DC and daughter goes to school there now I learned a lot about history of Georgetown -- very fun. Food on tour excellent choices.

    Hi Robin, What a great way to rediscover DC, I'll be sure to pass your compliments on to Robert! I hope your daughter found some new spots to re-visit and that you'll look back fondly the fun memories you created on this day! Cheers, Inah
    Great tour with four restaurant visits -- so much food at each stop.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Happy to hear you enjoyed your tour! 
    Great food, great guide! A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
    We would suggest one thing. We had no dietary restrictions but felt that two dishes were TOO salty: the mushroom taco and the spinach crepe. All other food tasted great, especially the Korean restaurant, our favorite. Our guide was very friendly and lots of fun. The desserts were yummy but there was no reserved seating which was awkward.
    Our guide (Andrew) was wonderful! He was very animated and knowledgeable, and he made the experience fun for all of us.
    The guide was friendly and interesting. The booking agent was too. The tour listed online was not available after I had paid for it, but she gave me other suggestions and worked it out quickly and very well.
    Andrew was excellent. He is very professional, kind and knowledgeable about Georgetown. We enjoyed it very much.
    The guide Kayla was friendly and extremely informative. If I were to change anything it would be that the guests receive all individual portions at each stop.
    The food tour of Georgetown far exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide, Sandy, was awesome. We had a 2-year old child with us, and Sandy went out of his way to make sure that the restaurants had appropriate space for us, and arranged for high chairs etc where possible. He even offered to help my wife carry our stroller at one point, which was way above and beyond the call of duty. It was really great, and helped a lot, because we knew that this might not be the best activity for a two-year old child, but could not find a babysitter. Sandy was incredibly friendly, and professional, and did a great job of explaining the various sites around the neighborhood. We live very close to the tour area, but had never been to two of the restaurants on our tour, and they both turned out to be great (Neyla and Paolo's), and we will definitely return. The third restaurant - J Paul's, was probably our least favorite in terms of food, because they really did not provide enough for the size of our party. The charcuterie and cheese board with olives and bread was only sufficient for a party half our size. There were a number of items on the board that we did not get to try because there simply was not enough to go around. The other restaurant that provided a family style service, Neyla, did a much better job of making sure that there was enough for everyone to try. As you can see from our rating, this did not detract from the overall experience, but at least from my perspective, if you are thinking about switching the restaurant rotation, J Paul's might be a good choice to switch up, at least based on our experience there. Anyway, we can't say enough great things about Sandy, he was awesome, and really made everyone feel welcome and comfortable.
    Robert was a great guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the food was excellent.
