After meeting up with our tour guide and 2 other couples, we started a stroll through the neighborhoods around the Italian market and into the market itself. Our tour guide Chuck was extremely...

Our group of 6 took the 2 hour Italian Market tour on December 31, 2015, with Nina as our guide. We absolutely enjoyed the tour as Nina escorted us to many Italian shops and snagged us several samples to taste as she gave us a history of the market, the area, and shops. After the tour was completed we headed... More

Our guide Kenny was really great, easy to hear, very interesting and informative, not to mention great sense of humor, put everyone at ease and was sensitive towards some elderly walkers we had in the group. My daughter and I did the tour on a weekday (got the tickets through Groupon) and there were 10 people in our tour group.... More

I took the holiday tour with Chuck today. It was outstanding. He was an awesome guide who taught me so many interesting things about Philly. I´m from Philly, but still learned so much about this city. It was the perfect combination of walking, sightseeing, and information. I highly recommend it!

We spent a wonderful afternoon learning about the city I have lived in all of my life. Thanks to Chuck for guiding us through Center City, beginning at the skating rink at Dilworth Plaza and showing us the Christmas shows at Macy's and the Comcast Center as well as touring the Reading Terminal, City Hall, Christmas Village and the Basillica...

We both grew up right outside of Phila. & always wanted a tour, but never did. We were so impressed with what we learned, that we should have already... More

We booked the Philly on Tap tour and were disappointed with the tour. Perhaps I was expecting more but some of the basic expectations for a food/drink walking tour in a city were not met. First the tour takes you to 3 bars. No brew pubs or microbreweries tasting rooms are on the agenda. At each of the bars you... More

Nina our tour guide was energetic and catered to our groups as well as got us to every show on time. We loved the extra treats she gave us and the time spent in SS Peter and Paul's Basilica.

Chuck was our guide for the holiday tour and was great! With the hectic-ness of the holidays in the city, he handled the stress and crowds with ease. Had lots of great info to share and his love of such a great city showed! Thanks for a great afternoon!
