Had a great time with my fiance at the tasting. Erik couldn't have been nicer or a more informed host. Found some new favorite cheeses to buy. Thanks!

We highly encourage you to enjoy the experience You'll either find yourself hooked on a... More

I planned my sister's bachelorette night out and City Food Tour's 'Prohibition Cocktail Tour' is how we started our night that Saturday (there were seven of us so we had our own tour). I figured it would be good (what's not to like about cocktails and wandering around downtown Philadelphia on a beautiful night) but our experience FAR exceeded my... More

If you are visiting Philly you should definitely check out this food tour. There isn't a crazy amount of walking and there are lots of sit down food stops. Our guide was wonderful. As we walked from one food destination to the next, she pointed out many buildings and sites of interest and filled us in on the history of... More

We did the Flavors of Philly food tour. It was amazing! Our guide gave us a food tour and history tour rolled into one, which I found really good. Almost like a Welcome to Philadelphia tour. The food was really tasty and he gave us recommendations for foods and restaurants. The guide was extremely friendly and promoted local business and... More

My husband and I recently moved to the city. My teenage niece and nephew were visiting, and we wanted to find an activity that all of us could enjoy. The food tour was the perfect way to give all of us exposure to some fun history and amazing "classic" Philly food. Judy was an awesome guide, waitress, and historian; and... More

This tour was great and our guide, Virginia, was too! Went for my sister's bachelorette (we were a group of six) and ended up being the only ones on the tour which was perfect. Virginia was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of historical references throughout the tour. The food was good and the portions, in my opinion, were more... More

My sister and I did a little "sister weekend" in Philadelphia and we wanted to do something a little different. Well this was it :) Our tour guide, Judy, (I hope I have her name right as she was wonderful), was informative, interesting and made sure the entire group mingled and had a great time. It is a walking tour... More

My wife and I were delighted to discover such a highly-rated foodie tour of Philadelphia. This 2+ hour tour was packed with information about both historic and modern Philly. I was concerned at first that we would stuff ourselves, but the walking broke up the food courses. The departure spot was a short walk from the Delaware River. I would... More
