I can't really comment on any of the tours, but I hope I will be able to in the future. In an effort to try a new type of team building exercise, I contacted City Food Tours to do a private cooking event. From start to finish the planning process was easy and I really felt they went out of... More

Would not recommend this tour for anyone who lives in Philadelphia. It was Philadelphia "food" and not very good selections of it.

Last Saturday we were on Virginia's Decadent Gourmet food tour. We had been concerned about the cold and snow but Virginia assured us (correctly) that it wouldn't be a problem. We enjoyed her information and her friendliness very much, and the food was excellent. We found the information about cheese very interesting; I have always loved eating cheese, and now... More

My boyfriend and I recently attended the Decadent Gourmet Tour. Our tour guide, Rochelle, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I enjoyed learning tidbits of history alongside the food items we were sampling. I definitely recommend this tour to others and can't wait to try another City Tour!

Overly priced aphrodisiac dinner! Co host had such a crude foul mouth. Huge disappointment for a romantic evening on V-day.

For the second year in a row, I took my team on a City Food Tour with Robert. We're already talking about the 3 venues that we'd like to try during next years City Food Tour. What does that tell you? Awesome experience!

We did this as a belated Christmas gift. It was super easy to get to and parking was right around the corner. The event was fantastic. Eric was extremely knowledgeable and informative in everything that he presented. The beers and cheeses were delicious. I definitely plan to do this tasting with other friends and am looking forward to trying some... More

My wife and I recently took the decadent gourmet walking food tour with Virginia as our guide. It was a great day spent in Philly! Virginia was very knowledgeable, friendly, and showed us great places to eat around the city. Not only do you learn about different foods and taste test foods from around the city, Virginia also was knowledgeable... More

Had a fantastic time with my boyfriend, he is a food science major and had a lot of fun discussing origin and preparation with our tour guide Robert. Super nice guy, we ended up being the only ones there because there were some no shows so that was awesome. Everhthing we ate was delicious. Seriously, everything was good. I had... More
