We enjoyed our tour with Kenny. He was very knowledgeable and made the tour very enjoyable. He encouraged us to ask questions and was helpful with recommendations. The tour itself was a nice way to be introduced to the market and the stores that are there. The rich history is not something you will know without going on a tour.... More

Chuck, our tour guide, was great! First of all, he grew up in South Philly and resides in Philly. So he knows he stuff in and out. Second, he took us to brick-and-mortar businesses and the owners of each business told us their little stories. It was just fascinated to hear from the actual business owners rather than someone else.... More

My husband and I just spent our Anniversary on the Segway Tour of Philadelphia. It was absolutely wonderful. The training was concise yet thorough. Within one block, I felt like I had been on a Segway my whole life. Then it was time to really start enjoying the tour. Although, my husband works in the City, we got to see... More

Took the Italian Market Tour on a recent Sunday Morning tour with Chuck. Having grown up in the area and visiting the Market from time to time, I thought I was already fairly familiar with what it had to offer, but this tour proved me wrong. From learning about the roots of the market and its ties to the the... More

Chris was great. He was born and raised in the area so his unique views made the tour even better. The chance to "create the perfect meal" by stopping at different spots to try and buy things was such a great concept. The ability of going and meeting owners and seeing the back room of original family owned butcher shops... More

Owen was so fun and knowledgeable! It was great to get a local who loves history, loves what he does and personalized the tour for us! It was great to see the obvious big sites but then get the lesser known stories, too! Highly recommend this tour!

Chuck, our guide, gave a great history of Philly, showing that he was knowledgable and entertaining. We went through old neighborhoods, learning about architecture, street art, ethnic diversity, and especially the good breads, oils, cheeses, and meats in family owned businesses of the old Italian neighborhood. Great fun and a different kind of tour to do with visitors to the... More

My sisters and I took a wonderful Urban Adventure History Tour with Kendra. The two- hour tour highlighted many historic areas giving us suggestions on where to return for further information. Kendra was energetic and entertaining. It was a great way to start our first visit to the city!

I was pleasantly pleased with a tour of the Italian Market. I had heard recently that it was no longer "Italian". But most of the indoor stores were still Italian and had a wonderful selection of goods. Chuck was our guide and he kept everything interesting and fresh. Including many historical facts on the area. I will definitely return!!!
