After living in Philadelphia for more than 20 years, I have visited the Italian market many times, but never saw it like this! Chuck was an amazing guide who provided details, historical context and practical information that made this an outstanding adventure. Now that I know the "ins and outs," I will go back to support these committed and authentic... More

This tour had it all! A fun knowledgeable passionate tour guide (Chuck!), the history of the great up and coming city and local craft beer from popular city watering holes. It was a very laid back atmosphere, it felt like hanging out with friends more than a history tour where the tour guides talk at you. Our tour guide talked... More

We recently went on a walking tour of Philadelphia with Josh of Urban Adventures and it was wonderful! We traveled at a comfortable pace and saw many historic sites. Josh was not only knowledgeable, but cheerful and pleasant as well. There were two teenagers in our party and he took the time to find out what interested them and tailored... More

The Soul of the Centre City Tour. Apparently this is the not the most popular tour, but we loved it. Kenny was very knowledgable and made my wife and I comfortable. The three hours went by quickly as there was so much take in. Highlights: The markets. The murals. Going into buildings and alleys that you normally wouldn't notice. Tip:... More

We had a great tour with Chris ( and Kendra, a tour guide in training) of the Italian market in Philadelphia. Chris obviously knows a lot about the market and has a great rapport with the market owners in the area. The tour lasts about two hours and Chris was flexible about some of the stops. There's time for shopping.... More

My husband and I had enjoyed a great drinking tour in New Orleans, and were hoping to have a similar experience. We were somewhat cautious because it was only beer and three stops. However, we were not disappointed! We had an absolutely fantastic time! Our extremely knowledgeable and friendly tour guide gave great beer recommendations and had bountiful information about...

Whether you're a local, or just visiting the city, this tour is sure to give you your moneys worth, and then some!! Our tour guide Chris was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. Not to mention how entertaining he made the tour. The tour group was relatively small (6 ppl) which made it THAT much better. A lot... More

Today we had an excellent tour of the Italian Market with Nina our tour guide. If you are looking for a tour of the best cheeses, olive oil, spices, candy and more I highly recommend this tour. We came home with an insider's view of South Philly along with bags filled with fine cheeses, spices, bread, jerky, candy, and prosciutto.... More

I enjoyed a terrific walking tour around the historic area of Philadelphia, led by our very friendly and knowledgeable guide, Nina. For just over two hours, Nina took us to significant landmarks, and backed it up with excellent commentary. It was a hot day, so the complimentary beer at the end of the tour was well appreciated. Thank you Nina.... More
