Jason was an amazing tour guide. He brought his knowledge of history and his background as a local to add a personal touch to the tour. Food tastings were delicious and a nice variety that left us satisfied without being too much. As a bonus this tour company donates meals to needy families in the area.

Soneka’s (sp?) knowledge of the local area and experience significantly added to this tour. The street art was beautiful and the food was delish!

Walk and eat your way through vibrant street life rich in 20th century African American history. Leave room for ice cream at the end.

We have taken many food walking tours in Paris, Georgia & Vietnam. And the U St, Food & History Tour ranks high marks. The guide is knowledgeable, very friendly and helpful. Expect to take plenty of steps through this ironic neighborhood of historic black-own businesses, murals, and new condos. The tour began with a spicy sausage chili dog from Ben's Chili, then Ethiopian lunch, macaroni & cheese, ice cream from Made from Friends and a Cuban dessert. You will not be disappointed in the food, history and the tour.

We enjoyed our Food Tour with Stevaan very much. It was an extremely hot July day and he went out of his way to make sure we had plenty of water and was able to get our group inside some of the restaurants for our tastings. Interesting to learn the history of U street while enjoying tasty bites of Soul, Ethiopian, Cuban and locally made ice cream.
