Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Washington DC Tour Hub, Washington DC, DC 20004

You’ve seen the major sites in Washington DC — the Capitol Building, the Smithsonian Museums and the thought-provoking memorials — but did you ever wonder about the people who built this great city? Join us on a foodie tour of H Street, the neighborhood that housed the builders and artisans who built the city and made it come to life.

After introducing ourselves at the meeting point, we kick off the tour with a delicious snack from a local grocery store. Then we head to a cafe with freshly roasted, in-house coffee, where we may even meet the unofficial “Mayor of H St!”


Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: H Street (Atlas District), H Street, Washington DC, DC

We continue to make a loop around the H Street Corridor, visiting restaurants, markets, churches, and historic sites. Our foodie stops vary depending on what is available that day but we can promise a culinary rollercoaster ride through many of DC’s most authentic and delicious neighborhood spots.

Along the way, you’ll hear some amazing stories about the people who used to live and work in this district, learn how food has played a big part in bringing the community together and taste for yourself why DC’s food scene is enjoying a much-deserved resurgence.

After we have filled you up with some of the best food in the city, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more hints and tips on how to get the most from your stay in Washington DC.


Duration: 3 hours
