My friends and I did the Manayunk as a birthday present. It was so much fun! The food was absolutely delicious, the portions were substantial, and the tour guide was fantastic. It was really interesting to hear little bits of history as we walked around. I definitely plan on doing another one! Highly recommend.

This is the second Chew Philly Tour my husband and I took. This was the Chestnut Hill tour. The first tour in Manayunk was so much fun we were very excited to take the Chestnut Hill tour. Elyse was our guide on both tours and she made it a very informative and fun time. She introduced us to six great... More

It was a nice tour and good experience of local food. The guide, Jim, was knowledgeable and friendly. Food was tasteful and somewhat unusual, especially peanut butter bacon burger. It was a lot of walking, some stairs, so I would not recommend for people who have difficulty walking long distances under the summer sun. Overall, we had a good time,... More

We had great food on the Manyunk tour and learned a lot about an area few tourists visit. Our guide was very knowledgeable and even took a short cut to keep us out of the 100 degree heat as much as possible.

Though the mid-July temperature scorched the pavement in Manyunk, we were too immersed in the fascinating food walking tour of various eateries in the area to be deterred. Our guide, Lauren, was delightful--she was both informative and enthusiastic. It was clear that she really enjoyed her work. The historical samplings, like the food tastings, were ample and quite satisfying. We... More

My daughter and I really enjoyed this tour. The schmitter at McNally's was delicious and huge. got to meet the owners of a cheese shop and olive oil shop for tastings, and had mussels and two beers at Iron Hill brewery. we finished at Night Kitchen Bakery with the best brownie we'd ever had. The tastings were larger than anticipated,... More

There were only 5 stops on the Chestnut Hill tour (6 were listed, I've had 7 on other tours) and 2 of them seemed to be places where anyone could stop in and have a small sample and gain some knowledge (the cheese and olive oil shops). McNally's Tavern and Iron Hill Brewery were worth it. Both had good sized... More

We sincerely thank you for taking the time to write a review. We sincerely apologize for any shortcomings you felt the tour may have had.

The Chew Philly Food tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Philadelphia last week. If you are in the area you absolutely should not miss this opportunity. It is a walking tasting tour that includes tomato pie, stuffed bread, pretzels, a peanut butter and jelly bacon cheeseburger, an original Philly cheesesteak with real cheese, a sticky bun,... More

Have done the Manyunk Tour and this time did the Chestnut Hill tour. Nice tour, but the Manyunk one is better; just better food options. Loved The Schmitter and the Cheese Shop. I don't consider tasting olive oil a food. Lovely shop owner, just don't think that should be on a food tour. The beer and mussels at Iron Hill... More

Never had the experience of a peanut-butter & bacon burger but at Lucky's Last Chance that is exactly what we were able to taste. Unique pairing of flavors. The pepperoni break from Marchiano's was incredible. The cheesesteak at Sorrentiono's with the cheese cooked with the steak was great. Top it all off with that delectable cupcake and our taste buds... More
