Thank you Robert for a great sampling of the food and atmosphere. It was a perfect time frame (2hours) if you just want a quick tour and have to travel into Philly. Enjoyed your funny commentary on the tour as well.

I went on the Foods of Philadelphia tour in April during a weekend trip; Robert was a fantastic guide - he was super knowledgeable of the city (he might as well be a personal tour guide), and blended good commentary with historical knowledge. Seriously, I think he knows every business owner and restaurant owner in the city.

The tomato pie, cheesesteaks, pretzels, etc were of course, delicious, and it was a great time to learn about the history of the city at the same time.

If you have any reservations about signing up for a tour - do it now, you won't regret it.

I am new to the city and had some friends in to visit for the weekend; I selected this tour over others because of the strong reviews. We were not disappointed. We met our tour guide, Judy, for a "Flavors of Philly" tour; the tour was given at a leisurely pace by a clearly knowledgeable guide. Largely concentrated in Center City, Judy provided us with great stories of the city and its history while filling us up with Philly food favorites. Most impressively, Judy was able to easily read the group dynamic and as a result adjust her pitch to meet our expectations. Since tours often feel a bit canned, her experience as a tour guide was most evident in this way.

The double rise crust tomato pie at Joe's Brick Oven Pizza was a real stand out as was the quick peek into the old bank vault at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak.

Judy was an amazing ambassador for Philadelphia. We now have a ton of ideas for where to go when we come back to the city. We took several tours while in Philly, but this was one of the most informative. Plus, the food was awesome. We learned about the history of the city, the history of its food, and the history of the people who call it home. I would recommend this tour to anyone and look forward to taking one of the other tours available from City Food Tours in the future (i.e., the Prohibition Tour!). Thanks for a great time!

My husband and I went on a rainy Saturday. Our guide Eric- was awesome! Even though the weather was crummy, the walk- around tour was great. We sample foods from cool places in Reading Terminal, Yummy Gelatos, and decadent cheeses. They explain about the tasty bites you have and cool facts and things about the businesses and places you walk through. We can't wait to try one of the other tours!
