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!

Took my 9 year old daughter along for the 5K Philadelphia your. It was perfect! We had a wonderful historic tour of the city and the run was enjoyable and a good pace for both of us. Our guide was excellent and very friendly!

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!

Loved everything about my tour (even the rain)! I got to see some classic gems but learned a lot of new things, too. The guides were knowledgeable, and worked well despite me being a beginner>novice runner. I definitely plan on hitting the other tours in the Spring.
