We thought this Flavours of Philly tour would be a good introduction to the food of Philly and we were not wrong. Ryan was an excellent guide, he was interesting and engaging and open to answering any and all questions from out-of-towners! We enjoyed the fact that we were taken into places we might not normally go to see some... More

Appreciated that our guide was knowledgeable and loved Philly. She shared restaurant tips and recommendations throughout the walking tour. We started at 16th & Chestnut and ended at Reading Terminal Market so the amount of walking was reasonable. What we ate: 1. Tomato Pie at Joe’s Pizza – double rise crust topped with only tomato sauce (excellent sauce). 2. Soft... More

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

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.
