We had a great time. Carolyn the tour guide was fantastic! It was a nice balance of history and food tasting. We would definitely enjoy it again someday. Maybe a different location. We've also shared our experience with friends and have encouraged them to sign up.

100% recommended! The Culinary Tour in Annapolis was perfect, the tour guide Stephanie did an outstanding job relaying the history during the tour. The weather was perfect, and the four of us (ladies) had a great time and enjoyed the tastings.(They even tweaked one persons tastings due to gluten sensitivity) A great day trip - I'll bring my husband next time and stay overnight to see more!

Our guide Stephanie really made this tour for us. She was very personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. The restaurants we visited were excellent and the amount of food and drink we received was more than sufficient. Loved hearing all the history of Annapolis, and Stephanie knew a lot of information regarding the area. She kept us on schedule and she had it very well organized. Would definitely recommend to friends.

We had a wonderful experience! The group was great and our tour guide, Julia, was not only was very informative but made our tour quite fun. I would recommend the tour and would to do another Xperience Day tour in the future. Thanks!

I never would have purchased this on my own, but am very glad that our daughter gave it to us as a gift. We are not foodies, but we are history buffs, and the information, as well as the guide, were quite interesting. The food was a bonus. The stops were quite different form the website description, but they were good choices.

Tour guide Julia Bigelow was outstanding!
- John Greenleaf - Harrisburg, PA, Tuesday, July 17, 2012
The tour was nice and enjoyable. Plenty of food to sample and nice walk around the city. Web site needs to update the stops the tour makes as it was different than stated, but still very good. Tour guide was excellent. I also suggest you advise visitors where to park. We found a garage but I had to call once we got there.

My husband and son-in-law went on the tour. They had a great time. The tour guide was knowledgable. The food was delicious and plentiful. They even made substitutions where my husband was allergic to seafood. We were notified before the tour to talk about my husbands allergies. They really had a wonderful experience both food wise and history wise. Would do this again anytime! The weekend was a gift for my husband and the tour was certainly the highlight.
- Andrea Lang - Philadelphia, Tuesday, May 15, 2012
I highly recommend this experience to everyone. Carolyn, our tour guide, was very enthusiastic and informative. She knows her stuff! The food was amazing and plentiful. If you get the time please go. It's worth it!
- Tracy - Frederick, MD, Tuesday, April 17, 2012
We were a bit surprised that the tour was more of a history tour than a food tour as the description on the website had led us to believe. Our tour guide Carol was very nice and upbeat and has an extreme wealth of knowledge. We were more interested in the tour for the food stops not the history stops. Would definitely recommend if you are into History but not so sure I'd recommend if you are looking to go for the culinary sides of things.
- The Hawks - Annapolis, Monday, October 10, 2011
The guide, Carolyn, was in costume and character for the times, extremely experienced in the history of the town and time period, and well organized.
The food was plentiful and excellent. We were stuffed by the end.
- Craig - Annapolis, Tuesday, August 23, 2011
We had a great time with our tour guide Jillian. She was very informative and fun. We would rate her a 5.
- Phyllis Anderson - Baltimore, Tuesday, August 09, 2011
My friend and I had a good time. Our tour guide Rose was wonderful. The only issue I had was with the number of people in our group. We had 16 which I think is way too many. I do understand there was a mix up and you had two more than expected but I still think more than ten people is too much for this kind of tour. Other than that it was a nice experience.
- Michelle - Klares, Monday, June 13, 2011
Great tour if you love history. I have visited this area of Annapolis many times but not like this. I cannot wait to go back and show friends. Lots of walking, lots of good food. Our guide Rose was wonderful! Only complaint was there was too many people. It said for 14 and yet 16 were booked....tooo crowded. 10 would be perfect.
- Lynn Hansen - Annapolis, Saturday, June 11, 2011
Our guide, Rose, was wonderful! Stop at Galway Bay (an Irish restaurant) should have included a tasting of Guiness.
- Mark Chilcote - Annapolis, MD, Tuesday, June 07, 2011
Tour was excellent, very informative. The tastings were delicious. Had a very good time.
- David and Tina Waters - Maryland, Wednesday, June 01, 2011
We thoroughly enjoyed the Annapolis food tour. What a great way to see the city. Susan, our guide, was informative, entertaining, and determined for us to have a great time. We loved that you received earpieces so that we could hear her easily along the way. We would recommend this tour to others!
- Kevin & Candace McCarthy - Delaware, Tuesday, September 28, 2010
I was under the impression this would be only about great places to eat and drink in Annapolis. It did have a lot of that, but most of the tour was a history lesson of the people of Annapolis in Colonial times. We still enjoyed it for what it was though.
- Scott and Jill Zimmerman - Reisterstown, MD, Friday, July 23, 2010
Susan was a great tour guide. Full of interesting facts and information. Very fun day.
- Patti Noe - West Friendship, MD, Tuesday, June 08, 2010
We enjoyed it a lot though there were 3 things on the list that we didn't go to for some reason. But the restaurant hosts were very friendly and the food very good. The guide was ok. The brochure advertised time to take a quick photo or buy a souvenir. Every time someone stopped for a picture we were told that we had to keep moving and she couldn't have us lagging behind. Which as I understand it is why we had the earphones. We were never out of sight of her at all and the streets were crowded. We found her a bit overbearing. However, Kelsey, her assistant, was charming and fun and we enjoyed her tremendously even though our guide was not very nice to her.
- Dianne & Danny Seymour - NJ, Tuesday, May 18, 2010
It rained. Enjoyed tour a lot. Guide was great. Perhaps one longer stop to really rest, eat and drink. Would definately take another of your tours or would recommend.
