Lingering too long at a single restaurant results in legs falling asleep, food going cold, and the maitre d’ building a nest from patrons’ belongings. Dodge stagnant dining with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a D.C. restaurant walking tour from The City Tour (a $59 value).
The City Tour’s savvy guides helm walking tours throughout some of D.C.’s gastronomic gold mines, including Mei N Yu, Papa Razzi, Cafe La Ruche and Dupont Cafe. Each tour grants pedestrians insider access to four local venues, providing access to chefs, owners, demonstrations and tastings. Penn Quarter tours steer tourists through the rapidly growing neighborhood to sample fare from up-and-coming chefs and ogle the latest fashions in towering headwear, and the Dupont Circle tour shuffles walkers towards exotic cuisine and fusion restaurants. Otherwise, follow D.C.’s historic streets to Cafe La Ruche, where palates swoon over upscale French delicacies. Each tour includes gratuity, so no extra expenditures are necessary on the tour. Additionally, chefs at each tour stop give a presentation in which they share their distinctive culinary visions of fusing unique flavors and building forts out of nothing but Kraft Singles and graham crackers. New tours in different cities are added to the schedule often. This Groupon is valid for tours in any city.
In cities across the United States, TheCityTour's guides lead groups of up to 20 on gastronomic odysseys through select neighborhoods known for their thriving dining scenes. Each all-inclusive walking tour typically includes stops at four respected establishments, from sushi bars to crepe shops, where guests experience an array of dishes, drinks, and menu fonts. To further personalize the experience, the owner or chef makes an appearance and meets and talks to tour diners. Though the restaurants are kept secret and change every outing, TheCityTour's team does maintain an FAQ page to anticipate questions about the tour.
