Awesome food, really takes you outside of what you may typically order at a restaurant to try something different and amazing! Guide was a perfect for for the job as well, enthusiastic but not annoying. Cheese steak was by far the best I've had. No problems bringing our baby but had to leave the stroller in the car.

The food tour was great. We went on the tour with children (4, 12 and 18) and all 3 had a good time. The tour guide knew the area and the restaurants/food was great.

Amy was a blast. Her upbeat attitude and smile while she described her hometown and it’s current eating establishments is a real gem. Don’t miss this if you have a Philly Pass!!!

Great tour guide and amazing food. Hard to pick a favorite food. Portion size was perfect, walk was easy for anyone. Our guide included the children in the tour and was very patient.

1. Wear comfortable clothes 2. Do not eat prior to tour, you won't have room for all the wonderful tastings

Amy, our guide and a native of Manayunk, was a wonderful host. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and hard-working, she provided an entertaining insider look at this quirky Philadelphia neighborhood. Tip: For those of you traveling from out-of-state, make sure you leave some extra drive time. Seems like I-76, which Manayunk feeds off of, can get quite crowded, even on a weekend.

We have lived in Chester County our entire lives (40-year) and had never been to Manayunk. My wife gave me this tour for Father's Day and I didn't think that it was going to fun or good. I was sooo wrong! Amy was our tour host and she was fantastic! Each of our stops were amazing and getting to walk... More

My wife and recently visited Chew Philly and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide Elise (sp?) was great. She was warm, friendly, and engaging. The tour itself is not simply about the food but also about the neighborhood from which the treats were born out of. The vast majority of the food I'd either never had before or never had prepared...
