Absolutely fantastic way to enjoy a progressive dining experience in Philadelphia with a knowledgeable and entertaining guide from City Food Tours who made it easy, as all arrangements for our group were made in advance and handled by our guide. Three outstanding food experiences complemented by great cocktails, wine and beer in three interesting restaurants. Our retreat work group had... More

I booked this tour as a gift for my husband on his first Father's Day with children out of the house. We've been on several of these types of tours before. I was a little concerned about this tour in particular as we are already familiar with Philadelphia food and this seemed kind of generic. It was however the only... More

We were able to customize our event for our friend's baby shower. Robert and Eric gave us great instructions in the kitchen and everything we doable for a novice or experienced home chef. The recipes were delicious and i think everyone learned some cool kitchen tricks along the way. The atmosphere was fun and easygoing and I would recommend using... More

Our first City Food Tour...will not be our last! Such a nice way to spend time with old friends and meet new friends! Loved the spots included in the tour. Drinks were good at Time, 1 Tippling Place and Ranstead Room. Our tour guide Adam was knowledgable, and very personable! We will definitely do another tour!!!!

Eric and Robert were our hosts for a very unique "reality cooking" experience. This was the first time this "tour" was offered and there were 4 couples in the competition. The activity was held at a large commercial kitchen. Most of our work was on simple one burner cooktops due to the complexity of the kitchen. We had a tour... More

We had such a good time. Robert was a great tour guide. We got to taste a lot of the local food. My favorite was the artichoke pizza. It was a nice walk around the neighborhood while learning about the history of the area. We would definitely sign up again for another tour.

The food was great, the tomato pie was amazing! Kelly knows so much about Philadelphia history and pointed out hidden gems while we walked around.

East Passyunk has been *the* hot Philadelphia restaurant area for a couple of years now. I'd read about it a lot but hadn't been over to check it out yet, so I was happy to see City Food Tours (CFT) was offering a new tour of this area. We've been on several tours with CFT and always have a great... More

phillyfoodie7, Owner at City Food Tours Philadelphia, responded to this review

We very rarely respond to reviews since we believe everyone has a right to their opinion. In unusual circumstances, a review is so one-sided, we feel an explanation is helpful. We work diligently to please all of our customers all of the time, but it isn’t always possible. In this case, we were unable to run a tour since there... More

We booked a lunchtime tour and we almost skipped dinner. That was how filling it was! We had Judy as our guide. As a native Philly and having been a tour guide for six years already, she knows her town and the food well. The portions we had were generous, and while we're at it, Judy regaled us with both...
