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.

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.
