My wife bought me the tour for my 50th birthday and there were 8 of us (4 couples) that went together. I wasn't sure how my guy friends would like it, but they each reported different aspects that they truly enjoyed. It was a great time with friends. Our tour guide, Paige, was very knowledgeable of the area and of the history of Capitol Hill. I learned a lot. The neighborhood was very interesting from an architectural standpoint and the diversity of food offerings was amazing. My favorite food of the whole tour was at the Tapas restaurant; we had this unbelievably tender pork shoulder. My favorite restaurant of the day was the Salvadoran restaurant; plaintains, fried yucca, tender steak, all amazing. At each restaurant there was plenty of food. I think if there was one wish I had to make the tour better was to have more interaction with our restaurant hosts. I would love to have heard more of their stories and to tell us more about the food itself. Another highlight which wasn't on the tour but was very easy to access was Eastern Market. Such a cool setup with a combination of indoor and outdoor food, art, musicians, etc. I definitely enjoyed being able to see a part of DC that I didn't know well. Overall a great day!
