The tour explored some of the nooks and crannies that I would have otherwise never know were there. As a 4 year Seattle resident, I found it a great orientation to Capital history and offerings. The food was good, the sites visited interesting...continued

What can I say ... the tour was fantastic. Our tour guides Nick and Kylie were wonderful. They were funny and very knowledgable about Capitol Hill , the restaurants we visited, and the delicious foods we sampled. I highly recommended this tour.

Food tour will appeal to wide variety of folks..good size portions, wide variety of tastes. You won't leave hungry. Upbeat tour guide who knows the neighborhood, well paced tour. I took 4 kids between 10 and 15 yrs old, we all had a good time.

I was out of my element. There are beautiful parts of Capitol Hill...this area was not one of them. I lost my appetite seeing what was obviously a drug overdose. I think the "tour guide" was off on his timing & had too much coffee. I felt rushed....continued

Great tour, amazing tour guide. Even though we frequent restuarants on Capitol Hill, 5 were new to us. Food was great. Commentary was amusing as well as informative.

Highly recommend it for anyone interested in a fun food tour of Capitol Hill.

It was an okay experience, but I wish the restaurant/ bar choices could have been better. I mean it was ice cream/ cup cakes twice, mac&cheese, bagels, salty soup and a lousy ginger beverage. Had I known I would never have taken the tour. Santini,...continued

Was pouring rain and tour company would not allow a date change. Very irritating considering this is a 2 hour walking tour and who wants to be tromping in the cold and pouring rain with wet feet.
Would not recommend this unless you book a few...continued
