The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the culture of the restaurants we visited. We tasted delicious food from three restaurants, visited a Buddhist temple, and an Asian supermarket. We felt it was a wonderful gift from our daughter and her husband.

There were 4 of us in a group of 6 on this tour. Eric was our guide. We had a great time and enjoyed ourselves so much. The food was great, and Eric's knowledge was incredible. I not only enjoyed the food, but the history of the food and locations made the experience complete. We started at the Reading Terminal,... More

Adam was our tour guide on the cocktail prohibition tour. He was excellent. Very personable and funny. You stop at three bars and sit with others in your group at tables, forced to interact. Lol. I don't like tours very much because I want to do things on my own time but this was a decent tour. My husband didn't... More

The City Food Tour was a great experience for my family (some of which is local and some from out of state). We enjoyed the food and the portions were generous. Even though the weather wasn't great, we made the best of it. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. I do think the cost of the tour was... More

Did the Flavors of Philly tour with Ryan as our guide. It was a perfect balance of variety, portion and just enough history and walking to balance it all out. Ryan was both personable and knowledgeable. I would most certainly recommend this tour to others! Thank you, Ryan for making this a super positive experience.

My husband and I went on the Prohibition Cocktail tour twice recently-- both times with Adam as our guide. The first time, the group included a bachelorette party and one other couple. We had so much fun we went a second time, taking some friends with us, and the group also included several other couples. Although we visited the same... More

Eric proved my co-workers and I a great food tour of Philly followed by a scavenger hunt of Reading Terminal. The complete process of working with Jacquillen and walking with Eric was perfect. Just don't eat before you go or you will regret it. Great job Eric - Doug from Lufthansa

We had a fabulous time on our tour with our guide, Judy. We were a group of strangers from all over the country plus Australia but we were all friends at the end. Judy led the way and helped us all enjoy the special foods of Philly-tomato pie, cheesesteak, soft pretzel and a delicious spin through Reading Terminal Market. Food... More

We needed to call the number we were given if you have any questions and we spoke to Robert because we were lost and he was degrading and of no help. Thankfully we got to the tour okay. Our tour guide, Judy was great. She was very informative and took us to a variety of food places that truly represented... More
