This tour was great. The foods are all local to Philly, so while not necessarily gourmet, they tell part of the story of the city. In addition to the food, we went into some of the historic buildings and got a sense of Philadelphia's culture and history beyond Independence Hall ("Meet me at the eagle!"). The food on our tour...

As always my lovely bride and I try to take in a local walking food tour in any new destination. We had high expectations for Philly. And this tour fulfilled both. Fun and Filling. We started with light snacks. Soft pretzels, tomato pie. A quick tour of the vault room in Del Frisco's steak house then on to a Classic... More

Started slow with a bit of lackluster history while eating an equally lackluster 'tomato pie', but things picked up after the first stop. The food and the history became more interesting as we traveled by foot over several blocks, including City Hall, Wanakers original Macy's and Del Frisco (bonuses that weren't mentioned in the reservation). Our guide, Ryan, is a... More

It wa very slow paced with lots of opportunites to eat, walk, ask questions, and learn about food and history from a native Phiily girl. Highly... More

We were looking for something entertaining for two fourteen year old birthdays. This was perfect. There were 10 people in our group. Couples on dates, tourists and us. Our tour guide was Judy. Judy has a passion for the city she grew up in and is very knowledgable about the city. The tour itself is exactly as they describe it.... More

My husband and I had a great time learning about the history of the city and eating like the locals. We had the best cheese steak (made with american cheese), fries, tomato pie, a buttery pretzel, and some chocolate goodies at the end (wow, the famous cake truffle!) Our guide answered all of our random questions about how to get... More

Great tour. Our guide was very well informed and the pace of the tour was perfect along with the yummy tastings along the way. My wife and I really enjoyed the information about Philadelphia's architecture and history along the way. Highly reccomended.

My friend and I wanted to explore Philadelphia. I am a resident who travels extensively and she lives in Chicago. Our tour guide, Jamie, was great. He has a lot of knowledge about Philadelphia that he was able to incorporate into the tour. I was surprised that I had never eaten at any of the stops .. A nice surprise... More

Was not sure what expect-but what a surprise! As well as a great way to understand and sample such eats as tomato pie, a Philly cheesesteak, Reading market, Philly pretzels, and hand made chocolate pretzels -we enjoyed learning about Philadelphia history and architecture. Judy - our tour leader was fantastic. Loved it heaps!

Our guide was very nice and we had a great time with her. Enjoyed walking around the city and picking up new bits of Philadelphia trivia. But the food was awful! Cheeze Whiz on cold white roll is not my ideal for a cheesesteak sandwich. The "tomato pie" was average but didn't need to have THAT as part of the... More
