This is the second tour we've taken with city food tours and we liked it even better than the first tour. Our tour guide "handsome" Adam was personable and made sure to spend time with each couple chatting during the tour. He provided information about the prohibition in a entertaining style. The drinks and snacks on the tour were amazing.... More

We just did a tour with Virginia. All of us girls actually live in the city so this was just something fun to do for our friends birthday. Virginia was great!! She was peppy, energetic, knowledgeable and we could tell she LOVED food. What we didn't know, is how much history we would learn on this tour. I've lived here... More

Started at Cube Libre for tapas and mojitos; then off to Positano for a lovely Italian meal. We finished at Farmacia for dessert and after dinner drinks. Duration at each restaurant was... More

The certificates said they never expired, and they did not. I went with my son in-in-law. The tour was held at the Manayunk Brewing Company in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia. We... More

There were 13 people in our tour, from folks in their 20's to those like us, in their 60's, and we felt very comfortable. The restaurants... More
