We had an excellent time on our Flavors of Philly tour. Gude Kelly was very knowledgable, teachings us things we'd never known about the city we live in. We went with four adults and a teenager. Everyone was entertained.

I had been on this tour several years back, and persuaded my husband to join me during our recent trip to Philly. This tour is a great way to learn some interesting history, check out the city's architecture, as well as enjoy some local specialties. Judy wa a fantastic guide and we had a wonderful time. Highly recommended way to... More

Had a great time. Certainly enjoyed the choices of locations. Wanted to spend more time in the Reading Terminal Market. Overall it was very nice. Could have used a soda or something to drink other than water along with the food tasting. Looking forward to our next Food Tour and we may even come back to my "home" town. This... More

The Decadant food tour was great! There was quite a bit of walking, but much needed after all the "decadent," rich-filled foods! Bring comfortable shoes, because this was half sit, mostly standing and walking. Our tour guide, Rochelle was friendly and so knowledgeable! She made the trip fun and informative. The tasting portions were a nice variety and generous. We... More

This past weekend I took the decedent gourmet food tour. What a great way to spend the afternoon in the city. Our tour guide was Rochelle, who was fantastic! Rochelle took us to three places inside Reading Terminal, which was even more crowded than normal since it was Easter weekend. After we left there we walked toward DiBruno Brothers for... More

A great way to find out about the city and see parts of it which other tours miss. Judy was a great guide who obviously loves the city she grew up in and the food that comes with it. Great to finally have that Philly cheesesteak, along with some tomato pie, pretzels and cookies! Plus, as a solo traveller tours... More

The Decadent Gourmet Tour with Rochelle was great fun. It's a combo tasting & history tour. I especially liked getting to see the bank vault at Del Frisco's and having time to shop in DiBruno Bros. The group size(9) was perfect and our guide, Rochelle did a great job keeping us entertained, and all together in Reading Terminal on a... More

This is a walking food tour of the restaurants in Philadelphia, surrounding city hall. The guide provides fun facts and interesting history of the local area and this is a great way to get to know some local lore. I highly recommend this tour for tourists to the city. I took the Philly Favorites tour and I feel that it... More
