We learned so much that day about Philadelphia and also ate until we couldn't anymore. Our tour guide took us to some wonderful places that we could not help but visit again before we left to come back to Canada. We definitely recommend this tour!

Great tour. This is real food, not just bite-sized samples. We each had a generous slice of tomato pie at Joe's Pizza: soft pretzels at the Philly Pretzel Factory so fresh, they were too hot to eat right away; half a cheesesteak sandwich with a generous portion of cheese fries at Zio's; topped off by a cream-filled donut, which was...

We took the decadent food tour w/ Rochelle yesterday and had a GREAT time! Rochelle has a lot of enthusiasm and knowledge of the city, types of foods and local businesses. None of the couples knew each other but she made it a comfortable environment to talk and laugh. The tour was a gift for my husband and I wasn't... More

Judy was a great tour guide, she knew lots about the city that we did not know, which was great considering we are locals. The food was delicious and my husband and 13 year old son and I had a blast. Highly recommended for anyone!

Robert did a wonderful job guiding us during the "Ethnic Eats Tour" in the Italian market area of Philadelphia. He was very knowledgeable of the cuisine and cultures we experienced. I will definitely return to the places we visited. The highlight of the tour was a visit to the Buddhist Temple. I never knew that Philadelphia had such a Buddhist... More

What a fun tour for our girl trip in Philly. Learned a lot. Guide was very personable. Learned of a new Gin I like. Much fun was had by all. Includes small apetizers to eat as well so we were not drinking on empty stomach.

We took a brief vacation weekend in Philly and scheduled the Decadent Food Tour on the last day. Big mistake! There were so many things we discovered during the tour to come back and explore later, but we had no time. Rochelle was a terrific guide, navigating a salivating group through Reading Market stalls, then down the street to sample... More

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 were recently entertained and educated by Robert, our enthusiastic Ethnic Eats guide. In addition to sharing the delicious foods of Vietnam, Thailand and Mexico (all diets were accommodated) he shared history of the South Philadelphia area, including the origin of the local Buddhist temple. We highly encourage you to enjoy the experience You'll either find yourself hooked on a... More
