I spent a great afternoon with my wife, eating the best local food that Philly has to offer. I also had a great tour guide (Christine) that taught me more about Philly than I ever learned before. The locations were enjoyable and the walk was great. You needed it in between spots. We had a great time and are looking to do more tours with this company.

Judy, our guide, is a native of Philly and shared fun facts of the city along with the wonderful food of the region at local neighborhood eateries. Loved the tomato pie, and I now know why the Philly cheese steak sandwich is so loved, made a believer of me! YUM! and don't forget the cheese fries. On to dessert; soft pretzel, chocolate covered pretzel and cookies in a great indoor market place with a large variety of local venders.
Be sure to book your food tour with City Food Tour early, and take it early in your visit so you can learn where the locals eat that won't be full of tourist.

I found this tour online and thought it would be something fun that I could do with my dad. We had a great time! We had the opportunity to taste some great beers and we fell in love with the Boucheron goat cheese. Eric was full of interesting facts about both the beer and the cheese. Dad and I had a great time and I have already recommended the tasting to a few of my friends. I plan on looking into some of the other food tours as well.

My husband and I visited Philadelphia this weekend for an impromptu getaway. We spent a few hours on Saturday on the City Food Tour. Christine, our guide, was fantastic! She is a local young lady that definitely knows the city...and her food :). We enjoyed tomato pie, a soft pretzel, a cheesesteak, cheese fries, chocolate covered pretzels and a delicious cookie! You should go hungry as this is a lot of food. We visit Philadelphia a few times each year and this was by far, the most enjoyable tour we have taken yet. Not only was the food great, we learned so much from Christine about the city -- She is truly as asset to the tour! We will definitely check out your other tours. Why not get a group together and enjoy this tour with some friends? I highly recommend it.

I love food tours and this one was a lot of fun. Interesting and eclectic part of the city, with really fun food stops. Robert was great and made the tour interesting with his humor and knowledge of the city. I will try the other tours offered in the near future!
