What a fun way to have lunch and discover some really tasty, new places to come back to in Manayunk! The food was great, and our guide Jim was very informative. We learned a lot about the architecture and history of Manayunk.

A great time of learning about Manayunk and it's food. Our tour guides were informative and went the extra mile for us. All of the food was tasty and filling. Also the people in our group were from all over the country and interesting to meet.

Food tour of Manayunk, with local history and current hot spots. Walking up and down is part of the experience in Manayunk. But the food more than make up for it! Tomato pie, sticky buns, great coffee, cheesesteaks, and Philly's best burger...all were sampled. Leaders were great and funny. Good experience all around and I learned something about Manayunk...stayed to... More

The tour was great once we got there, but our 20 minute journey from Suburban Station to Manayunk took us through bandit territory and we started to doubt the wisdom of our touristic choice. Finding Main Street with some obvious foodie establishments convinced us that we were probably going in the right direction and with the help of a friendly... More

My recent tour was everything I had hoped and more. This was my first experience with a food tour and I am very happy I chose Chew Philly as my guide. Elyse? (I am probably butchering the spelling of her name!) was a great tour guide. She is one of the owners and was training a new guide throughout our... More

This tour far exceeded our expectations! The guide was friendly and knowledgable, and everything was just incredibly well organized. We learned a great deal about the food scene as well as the history of Manayunk in general. All of the food was DELICIOUS, and we loved the variety of the different things we got to try.

This was our first food tour. The young lady that led the tour was very well spoken and provided information not only about the food we tasted but the history of Manayunk and the food establishments we visited. She was able to answer our questions and provide insights that were both informative and interesting.

Great experience. Learned a lot about Manayunk and went to some fabulous food locations. Enjoyed the Italian tomato pie, Philly pretzels, cheesesteak, cappuccino, AND red velvet cupcake & pumpkin cheese cake. It was a great way to learn about Manayunk and make us want to return for a longer visit. Our tour guide, Alyssa, did an excellent job. We would... More

We truly enjoyed this haunted tour on Halloween. We heard very interesting tidbits of Philadelphia lore and legends. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the local area and delighted us with her knowledge regarding the wishes of William Penn as he was bringing his vision to light on the narrow and densely populated streets of Philadelphia. The food was... More

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.
