Tomato pie? I mean really??? Sounds like pizza base to me. But not after we’ve taken the Flavours of Philly tour. I’ve never had tomato pie before but I think that the one they served us at Joe’s Pizza was hands-down THE. BEST. The crust was cookie thick and crisp, and the balance of flavours of the tomato filling was... More

I thought our guide was very well versed on the eateries we went to and on Philly tourism highlights. She was very aware of her responsibilities as guide, hostess, waitress and storyteller and fulfilled all of these. I apologize for forgetting her name--Judy possibly? We tried tomato pizza (no cheese--I loved it), cheeze whiz fries, cookies, cheesesteak (not an ounce... More

Judy was a fantastic tour guide and super knowledgeable about the city of Philadelphia. My husband and I really wanted to go on this tour but only 1 space was left. The owner personally helped Us open another spot on the tour so we could both attend that day. Thanks Flavors of Philly food tour !

Our guide was very good and knew a lot about the city but the tour and food were nothing special. There were really only four stops for food and not once did a proprietor come out and talk to us. It was almost as if we were no big deal to them which is too bad because food tours are... More

Several of us met in Philly and decided this would be a fun way to spend an afternoon. It was great! We met at a central location that was easy walking distance from the train station, stopping at five places for a soft pretzel, tomato pie, a Philly cheesesteak and cheese fries, and ended with a chocolate chip cookie and...

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
