About
This tour combines two of Philly’s best contributions to the country: its history and its food! This is enough food for a meal. Come hungry, leave tipsy, and be in-the-know about Philadelphia’s rich history. We’ll serve you food, drinks, sweets, Ben Franklin, the Liberty Bell, and much more! While the foods during the 17th and 18th centuries may have been bland, we’re serving modernized versions of these foods and drinks that would have the colonials jealous. Learn about Philadelphia’s history in the tastiest way possible.

Great tour - Great food - Great guide!
Dec 2019
Last night my family and I experienced the Historic Old City Food Tour. Our guide was Kathy, who was fantastic! She was knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. The places we visited provided us with great food and drinks. As we walked from place to place, Kathy gave us interesting and fun history lessons about Philly. I would highly recommend this tour.
