Excellent food tour and tour guide (April). Soooo much food to sample we were stuffed! And all of the food was excellent -tomato pie, cheese and peperoni bread, soft pretzel, cheese steak, cupcake, cappuccino and candy. Highly recommend this tour. We've already signed up for the Chestnut Hill tour!

Took a friend on this tour for her birthday and we had a blast. Our guide, April, was friendly, engaging, and knew so many interesting facts about Manayunk, the history of the restaurants we visited and of course, the food. Great day out!

My husband and I have traveled to many different cities but this is the first time we tried a food tour. It started off rocky as our cab driver could not find the bakery to start the tour and drove around aimlessly for 30 minutes instead of asking for help! Once we found the tour it was great. We did...

Hi Jenn! We're so sorry that you experienced transportation issues, but are glad you were able to make it! We love that you thought the coffee was the best you've ever had. While it seems counter-intuitive to serve cappuccino on a hot day, the reason we don't serve iced coffee is because it's not nearly as delicious! The ice really... More

This tour was purchased for my husband and I as an anniversary gift. Knowing how much we LOVE to eat it was a great experience for us. There were 16 people and the tour guide who did a terrific job! I don't want to give away all the goodies so I will just say it is well worth taking the... More

Having been on other tours in other cities and states, I wasn't as impressed by this one. While the tour guide, Jim, was good, I'd wished that a section of tables/chairs were reserved for the group at each stop (as I've experienced in other tours). Food portions weren't as large as other tours. Not that I was hungry, but for... More

ChewPhilly, Owner at Chew Philly Food Tours, responded to this review

Hi Diane! Thank you for providing such valuable feedback. We love that you pointed out to TripAdvisor users that not all food tours have the same theme, (for instance, ours in Manayunk highlights small, family-owned businesses). So while we provide 30 minutes of seated time throughout each tour, it's not always possible to reserve seating in advance, although we certainly... More

Really enjoyed the food and the guide. I was full by the end of the tour and I tried food that I never had before. I would definitely recommend.

My husband and I did the Manayunk food tour while in Philadelphia. The tour is perfectly designed: the selection of food is delicious and varied, it gives you a very good overview through tastings from local, family-owned shops. Our tour guide April was awesome: she was very friendly and very knowledgeable. Definitely recommended!

We did the Manayunk tour and LOVED! The tour guide, April, was so knowledgable and sweet. The samples were very filling - a full slice of tomato pie, stuffed bread, a soft pretzel, cheesesteak, a peanut butter burger (that I was surprised was really good!!), a cappuccino and chocolate, and a full-sized cupcake. We were all stuffed by the end.... More

Our guide was outstanding, she gave good information. The food was good but not what you would expect for what you paid. One pretzel, one slice of tomato pie and thin slice of stomboli, quarter of a cheese steak, quart of a hamburger, a piece of chocolate, cupcake and espresso. Not that I was hungry when I was finished, it... More

April was great on the tour - explaining history of the places & their food and the area. Had lots of fun! :) *Not a ton of food is provided, but six stops/eats of variety.* ALL yummy tastings!!! Hope to try out the Chestnut Hill one with April too! :-D
