This was my first time doing a city running tour and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a great and easy way to see some of the city.

I'm so glad I signed up for this. Even though I'm from Philadelphia I learned a lot on this tour. It was nice to run a route that included places I don't get to see that often. Will definitely do it again!

A wonderful tour of historic Philadelphia. I had limited time in the city and really felt after this tour that I had a chance to see many of the key spots in the city. Very informative. A lovely run, thanks!

Annie was an amazing guide and made the perfect route to see everything that was on my list. I learned so much about the city, historical landmarks and pop culture. She was so easy to get along with that she felt like a was running with an old friend. 12 miles felt short because I enjoyed the tour so much!!

We did the Sunday morning Rocky Steps Tour and it was a great way to see some sites while getting exercise. Our tour guides, Annie and Paul, were great!

City Food Tours never disappoints! On this particular tour, Adam led our group through the streets of downtown Philly searching out some of the tastiest cocktails and munchies while sharing some of the highlights of the days of Prohibition in Philadelphia. Lots of fun for locals & visitors alike!
