We had a great time on our Flavors of Philadelphia Walking Tour with Kelly. She provided us a great overview of Philadelphia's classic foods - tomato pie, soft pretzels, cheese steaks and more. Her hometown pride showed throughout the tour as she shared facts about the city's history and pop culture references, too. We loved that we learned about famous... More

My wife and I enjoyed the experience. I can walk up and down city streets all day, so I enjoyed that it includes walking along some streets and storefronts I may not have on my own. The balance of walking while hearing a little bit about the surrounding area and buildings mixed in with stopping into some local shops that... More

Very tame from an ethnic food viewpoint but some other folks were flipping out to have tasted a samosa so... watcha gonna do. Helpful in discovering a new neighborhood to go out to eat in Philadelphia. Robert is a trip. Dont be too uptight or it could get uncomfortable.

This was my first food tour. I'm glad I experienced one, but I don't know that I would do it again. We opted for the Gourmet Decadent tour, which was about 2.5 hours long, and consisted of visiting a handful of restaurants for a taste of their most popular (?) dishes, as well as some information about some of the...

Great tour to do it if you are searching something to do outdoors. Definitely worth it during summer. Be prepared to walk and to eat a lot! Really good to see main buildings and attractions in downtown Philly. Kelly, our tour guide, was a proud Philadelphian and gave us great tips about the city and interesting/funny historical facts.

My husband and I had a wonderful time on our Flavors of Philly Food Tour with City Food Tours last weekend. We tried Joe's tomato pie, a soft pretzel, cheese fries, a 4th Street chocolate trip cookie, a boston crème doughnut from the Reading Terminal Market, and of course, a Philly cheesesteak (from Pandora's). Everything was delicious and Robert was... More

This was a gift for my boyfriend, who is very into beer and is a homebrewer. At first I was worried that this would be not so fun for him since Eric would be talking about things he already knew about. However, Eric was so informative and entertaining, and the small group setting was a wonderful way to learn new,... More

Me and my wife enjoyed the tour very much. It was very informative and Robert was very good at explaining anything we wanted to know. He made you feel very comfortable and did not rush you. It was a very enjoyable experience and we will go on other tours hosted by Robert.
