We went on the Philadelphia food tour and it was a great way to learn more about the city and try some good food. It was $39 per person and it took approximately 2.5 hours. Starting out we tried a slice of tomato pie (pizza without cheese), next we got a portion of a soft pretzel to try, then we... More

This is the second City Tour we've taken and we were not disappointed. Our guide, Kelly, was very knowledgeable about the city and led us on a great tour. All the foods we sampled were outstanding. We would highly recommend this even to locals or those who know a lot about the city already.

We had a large group on the City Food Tour last week. Our guide, Kelly, was extremely knowledgeable about the city and about food in Philadelphia. She told great stories and anecdotes throughout the tour. There is not a great deal of walking, which was good because it was quite warm on the day that we were there. This tour... More

Our Guide - Matt - was awesome. Full of facts and fun to be around. Very patient with the Bachelorette Party and their silliness. Can't wait to go on another tour - I will certainly request Matt.

My fiancé and I went on the Ethnic Eats tour this afternoon with Robert and had a great time! Even though we've both lived in Philly for several years, we tried a few new restaurants that we'd never been to and even got to try a completely new dish at an Indonesian restaurant. Overall, the tour was a great value... More

Excellent time! We were looking for an experience in the Philly food scene that wasn't just cheese steaks and pretzels (which are amazing in their own right). Robert was very knowledgeable and an excellent tour guide. We explored a neighborhood that we had always wanted to check out, and this was definitely a great way to gain some insight. Would... More

Robert was a delight to have as a tour guide, and this was a great event to go to with fellow co-workers and friends. His humor was engaging and supplemented the fun facts we learned about Philadelphia and all the food we were eating. It was hot out when we went, so we did make requests to stay mostly indoors...

The Philadelphia Prohibition tour with Adam was an amazing experience. I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Our guide, Adam, made it a very educational and enjoyable experience. Laid back atmosphere, delicious drinks and snacks... Highly recommend

Robert was a marvelous leader - informative, knowledgeable, amusing and entertaining - just what we were looking for. While the food was excellent, the highlight was the tour of a Buddhist Temple which was fascinating. Robert's expertise really shone through. Can't wait to take another Tour - East Passyunk Tour will be next for us.
