If you're going to go to a new place, you have to try the food, and Judy from City Food Tours (Philly) gave us a great taste of the place! We were all surprised by the tomato pie (but who doesn't love great bread dipped in a red sauce??), and the soft pretzel (as you'll find out) is amazingly Philadelphia.... More

Too many to list China town is great, Reading Terminal lots of taste of Philly here. 4th street Deli is a winner. The Saloon in South Philly is great.

We were visiting NYC from Scotland, and decided to take a day trip to Philly on the train, hoping to get a quick flavour of the city. Thanks to our knowledgeable guide, Judy, and the lovely group we were with (including a family spanning 4 generations and a local couple with visiting friends), we had a wonderful time learning about...

My wife and I received this as an anniversary present from our children. As locals, we were surprised at how "untouristy" this was. Christine, our guide, was very well informed on the history of popular, favorite foods as well as other, little known history of the city. She was fabulous and it was like walking through the city with a... More

Judy, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the city and the history behind the foods that we tasted. She was also very considerate to my two year old, making it fun for her as well. Great way to see the city and taste it's flavor!

Christine did a great job of leading us while sharing interesting facts about the city. The food was good and the walk was easy. We did this tour in the pouring rain and still enjoyed ourselves!

I worked with Eric on a Belgian double through January/Feb 2014. Eric's directions were simple and straight forward, he took myself and my mate through each process directing us while we performed each step. He had another beer on hand for use to enjoy while we worked and even called a pizza in for us on that first day. I... More

Myself and four other family memebers took the Ethnic Food Tour in celebration with my 15 yo Son's birthday. He was really excited as he so enjoys trying different foods and traditions. We all had a wonderful time, the tour person "Robert" was fantastic and shared so much great information and tremendous hospitality. We will surely take another tour with... More
