I've been on several food tours in the Philly area and I have to say this was the best one I've been on. Our knowledgeable, energetic tour guide gave us a great experience. The food samples were large portions and a great selection. I would go on this same tour again and highly recommend to anyone that wants to learn... More

A nice variety of local food, just the right amount for "lunch". Amy does a great job with the group and knows the area and it's history. Don't take a cab from city center, the train is convenient and inexpensive.

This tour is definitely worth it! We had Amy as a tour guide and she was fun and energetic. What better way to learn a city than to eat its food?! Lol. All the food we had was amazing and if I ever go to Philly again will definitely try to go on this food tour again.

I see my neighborhood in a new way after this tour and have adopted many of the establishments as my new favorites. I am even more proud to call Manayunk my home! Although... More

This was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Our tour started off at Marchiano's Bakery on Umbria St. While waiting for everyone to arrive we were served hot apple cider from Sweet Elizabeth's Cakes. Yum! Then we had tomato pie and pepperoni/cheese bread from Marchiano's Bakery. Both were awesome and the portions were very generous. After that we... More

Ms. Benny was a fabulous guide full of interesting facts that even locals have little knowledge of. Her care free "whatever" comments kept the group banter lite and humorous. The stops along the tour were full of great treats and left me wanting more. The Red Velvet Cupcake from Sweet Elizabeth's was like nothing I ever tasted (she actually uses... More

"Olde Town Manayunk" is a perfect way to describe this 300-year-old Philadelphia neighborhood! We love how you phrased that. We're also glad that you enjoyed our carefully selected food tastings, and our talented tour guide Benni. Thanks for coming on our tour! We sincerely hope to see you again. More

We had a great time. Benny was our tour guide and she was great. I would definitely recomment this. The food was great. We will be going again - and hopefully bringing others with us.
