Fun and Yummy Tour
We had a great tour with Kaitlyn. We enjoyed all of the stops and learning about the history of parts of Philly we would have easily missed. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. We brought our 7 and 10 year olds with us and they had a great time too.

False Advertising
Sep 2021 • Family
Be aware, this food tour focused more on random, inconsequential history of Philly than it did on food. Definitely advertised incorrectly. If you’d like a tour focused on a department store, an old bank, and the face of Quaker Oats, with a bit of food sprinkled in here and there, this tour is for you. Otherwise you’re better off googling iconic food in Philly and giving yourself a personal food tour. The tour guide was also extremely condescending and treated the three teenagers I was with like they were little children. Overall, a disappointing and uncomfortable experience. But, the food that we DID try was great—hence two stars instead of one.

I'm very sorry that you feel this way about our food tour. We include lots of information about Philadelphia's history, culture, and other stories along with the foods that we provide on our tour, and guests almost always praise the "add on" of these aspects to our food tours. Our tours include lots of stories and information about the foods while they are being eaten, and I'm glad you enjoyed the food overall. As the owner, I spoke with the Tour Guide who ran your tour because I want to ensure that guests of all ages enjoy their experience; her joke about anyone under 18 enjoying the wine tower when they're of age was the only instance she could think of as offensive, but I hope that her intimate conversations with your teenagers about musical theater, schools, and our company were helpful to them. She seemed to think that they got a lot out of that.

Perfect blend of history and good good. Food tastings were spaced out nicely so there was time to digest before next meal. Kaitlyn was our guide and was excellent. Highly recommended

Great way to spend my solo afternoon in the city!
My tour was with Adam. It was a small Sunday group with me and a separate group consisting of three friends. Adam was a great guide keeping us engaged, making us laugh, and showcasing Philly’s flavor. He gave great recommendations as well, he knows his stuff! I can confidently say this is a great tour to do as a solo traveler and it would be great for a group of any size as well. The pacing was good and it was the right mix of information and eating. Thanks Adam!!

Fun Tour and Great Guide!
Aug 2021 • Solo
Our tour guide was Adam and he did a great job not only navigating us, but also provided fun interesting facts and history about each location we visited. Adam also gave great recommendations for places to check out in the city. The tour pace was comfortable and didn’t feel rushed at each stop to eat. There were plenty of opportunities for photos. Would definitely recommend for all ages!

Fun tour - okay value
Aug 2021
Our guide Owen was very fun and knowledgeable, and he took us to some places we would otherwise have missed. We enjoyed the food, but found that the value of the food compared to food tours we have done in other cities was low. The price was comparable to what we have paid for other food tours, but the food sampled was very cheap in comparison. By those standards, the tour is kind of expensive.

Thank you for your kind remarks on Owen and our tour altogether! Our prices are based on market research from other tours in Philadelphia and food tours across other major cities. The other food tours that we offer do have an elevated cuisine at a different price point, and those may agree with your previous experiences' pricing more closely. We appreciate you sharing your experiences with us and value reviews from al of our guests, and will take this as an opportunity to continue comparing our price point to other tours. Thank you again for joining us on our tour. We hope to see you again on one of our other food tours!
