We had a father/son day and chose this via a Living Social or Groupon deal. The guide was great and spent time providing a historical narrative of manyunk. All the food was tasty (wished we had a bit more). Highly recommended for those who enjoy walking around a town and truly enjoying an unique experience.

Our Chew Philly guide was gracious and informed and the food was good. However, there was a lot of bread and sweets (tomato pie, stuffed bread, soft pretzel, cheese steak on a roll, sticky bun and cupcake). In my opinion, the "menu" could have been more balanced, but we enjoyed the day.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We appreciate it, and are so glad that you enjoyed your tour. We also love that you pointed out for other TripAdvisor users that classic Philadelphia foods contain many carbohydrates. Philadelphia's most memorable foods could not be experienced without having "bread-heavy" tastings, such as the cheesesteak, tomato pie, sticky bun, and... More

The "Chew Philly Tour" was offered as one of the Philly Tour Pass attractions or you can purchase tickets without a Philly Pass for $45 per person (if you are seeing at least a few other attractions in Philadelphia, the Philly Pass is the most economical option, especially for the food tour). This tour far exceeded my expectations. It provides... More

Went on this as part of the Philadelphia Pass (which was a great deal). Elyse, our tour guide was knowledgeable. The tour felt a little marched at times as we went up steep hills and down a lot of stairs with no real sense of where we were going. We'd walk for about 10 minutes, stop, get a bit of... More

Nice variety of food and drink. Had pepperoni bread, tomato pie, a pretzel, cheese steak, coffee and a cupcake. Guide was pleasant, fun and full of tid bits on the area and food. Would try another tour through company. Be sure to have comfortable walking shoes and water.

My husband andI really enjoyed this tour, We are Philly natives, but had never been to the little corner stores to try their food here. everything we ate was delicious, and authentic. Our guide gave a lot of history and and fun facts. Their is a lot of hilly walking and steps - but all manageable.

Where else can you experience new tastes and burn off calories at the same time? Who knew that soft pretzels can have a touch of sweetness or that tomato pie sauce can have absolutely no sweetness? I would have chosen a cheesesteak that actually tasted like it had cheese, but that's what new experiences are for: trying something new. Amy... More
