Guide was very knowledgeable, personable and extremely accommodating. The food sampled was excellent and the selection of restaurants diverse and representative. The visit to the Buddhist temple was a bonus and educational. We had a very good time and were really pleased with the whole experience. The tour was a great gift for Grandma and easily walkable for anyone.

I booked the Decadent Food Tour for my husband's birthday. At first, I was a little annoyed upon arrival. We had trouble finding the meeting location. I called the number provided for questions and shockingly the man who answered (one of the owners) was kinda rude and impatient. The tour guide Rochelle made up for the company's poor customer service.... More

Very disappointing . . . The food aspect of this tour was a joke: dried fruit from a pre-packaged bag, mediocre meze, ordinary gelato, way overpriced cheese. The only redeeming aspect of the tour was the commentary about the architecture as we walked along the street, but it did not make up for what was overall a very disappointing afternoon.... More

My girlfriends and I recently visited Philadelphia and did a food tour with Kelly. I am from outside of Philadelphia and found the tour a lot of fun. Kelly was fun, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable about the city and the food. It was great to visit all family owned operations. Great way to spend the afternoon
