“Poorly organized”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

After waiting five months to take the tour, I contacted brown paper tickets and chew philly tours to confirm the tickets. After about an hour on the phone, three emails (and no-one getting to the bottom line), I found out there was a mis-communication/missed-email, and I had actually missed my scheduled date. No-one seemed interested in helping get to the bottom of the situation and i was effectively written off with a email.

Waste of money. Impersonal service. I did my best to be responsible, and to no avail.

Thank you for your review. We respond to each and every e-mail we receive, to ensure customer service quality, and apologize that you do not feel that this was satisfactory. We understand and empathize that at times customers, such as yourself, may book tickets for a tour, but then may not be able to attend the tour on the date that they scheduled. Had we been contacted prior to the date of your scheduled tour, you would have been able to reschedule for a date of your choosing. However, if tickets are not cancelled prior to the tour being conducted, Chew Philly Food Tours incurs all costs related to the tickets, and are no longer able to offer rescheduling/complimentary tickets. We thank you again for your feedback, and apologize that you were unable to attend the tour on the date that you scheduled it for.

“Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

My husband and I took the Chew Philly Food Tour on a beautiful September afternoon.
It was really interesting to walk through the scenic neighborhood and along the river while visiting quaint restaurants for delicious food and beverages. Loved the pork sandwich at Sorrento's the best. The guide was great and the other people on the tour were a surprise plus...very friendly and from many different places. The tour was a highlight of our wonderful Philadelphia trip.

“Great food tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I booked the tour for my stepdad's 60th birthday. We had a great time, all the food was excellent. I really enjoyed that the stops were small businesses and some were off the main strip. I would definitely recommend this well planned tour, just make sure you come with your appetite!
