"The three hours spent walking from Market Street to Carroll Creek to Church Street to the Weinberg Center to about everywhere else in between is every bit as educational as it is fattening."

“Extraordinary must do!~”

Frederick, MD is a mostly undiscovered treasure full of a variety of interesting shops, historic venues, antiquing, great restaurants and charm! Some of this is covered in a three hour walking tour called “TASTE OF FREDERICK”. As a reminder, do not eat anything at least 2 hours before you embark on your tour as there are six venues that will provided you with plenty of delicious food and drink. Our group of 16 all declared they are going to return to this charming town, the merchants and purveyors on the tour as well as other attractions that we saw while touring. After all, even though a lot was included in our 3 hour tour, there is still so much to visit. Just go, you won’t be disappointed!!

“Local entrepreneur Sarah Withers has blended two of Frederick’s major drawing cards, food and history—not to mention downtown’s easy walk-ability—into a three-hour tour that provides a satisfying lunch and a chance to hear Frederick’s back story.”

“Absolutely wonderful venue”

I hosted a group of out of town college friends (12 in number) and booked this tour. We had an absolutely wonderful time. It allowed us alot of time to interact and visit, as well as enjoy some tasty spots in downtown Frederick. Our tour guide, Duane was very attentive to the group, there was no rushing or clockwatching ( although we got side tracked a few times). Indoor tastings (sitting in restaurants) were sprinkled in- so that you did not feel that you were walking/out of doors for 3 hours. Although it was grounded in promoting downtown businesses, there was quite a bit of historical and architectural information about the town that was shared. I highly recommend this for a group of friends ( even locals), it makes you proud to be a part of this great community.

“Don’t Miss This”

I’ve lived here (close to Frederick) all my life, but this tour was really interesting. I learned a lot about historical Frederick and had some fabulous food along the way. The stops were really fun and unique. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I’ve been back to the Olive Oil store and Zoe’s Chocolate several times since then. Brewer’s Alley has always been a favorite. Get your walking shoes on and do this tour. You won’t be sorry!! (I found this on Groupon and once in a while there will be half off coupons).

Come hungry, you will have some great food. You will not be able to shop and purchase anything during the tour due to time constraints, but plan to stick around after the tour and revisit your favorites.

The host is really nice and knows her stuff! Don’t forget a nice tip for her (no I’m not a relative or affiliated!).

“A Taste of Frederick will have you coming back for more!”

Ann was a tremendous tour guide, and we were fortunate enough to have her all to ourselves! The restaurants and stores we visited were well-chosen, and the arrangements at each location were seamless – we felt very special! Ann was able to give us as much historical info as we requested, and she had some really fascinating tidbits to share – about each stop and about the city in general. The time flew by, and thankfully the weather co-operated, especially for June. Frederick is one of Maryland’s jewels, and it could not have been better represented by the food and especially the tour guide! Highly recommended for locals and visitors alike!
