“Great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Took advantage of a coupon and went with friends to try our first food tour. Great guide, great weather, great food. Tomato pie was very tasty, and the pork and broccoli rabe was the best. Lovely to look at and tasty to drink cappuccino (they do designs in the froth). The guide gave us interesting bits of history of the area and about the local architecture. We walked off a few of the calories we tasted on the hills and steps of Manayunk- not a handicap accessible tour.
Well worth it.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We love that you mentioned the cappuccino which we serve on our tours. We agree, it's the best in the city, and the beautiful latte art definitely adds a special something. Thank you again for touring with Chew Philly Food Tours!

“Scrumptous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

My wife and I attended this Food Tour and we were pleased. The guide was very knowledgable of the Manayunk area and personable. We walked along the the streets and nature trail along the canal on our journey to sample the food. I enjoyed all the samples of the food with the roasted pork with broccali robe being one of my favorites. One suggestion, we passed alot of ethnic restaurants on this tour. You may consider adding some of these in the future.

“Poorly organized”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

After waiting five months to take the tour, I contacted brown paper tickets and chew philly tours to confirm the tickets. After about an hour on the phone, three emails (and no-one getting to the bottom line), I found out there was a mis-communication/missed-email, and I had actually missed my scheduled date. No-one seemed interested in helping get to the bottom of the situation and i was effectively written off with a email.

Waste of money. Impersonal service. I did my best to be responsible, and to no avail.

Thank you for your review. We respond to each and every e-mail we receive, to ensure customer service quality, and apologize that you do not feel that this was satisfactory. We understand and empathize that at times customers, such as yourself, may book tickets for a tour, but then may not be able to attend the tour on the date that they scheduled. Had we been contacted prior to the date of your scheduled tour, you would have been able to reschedule for a date of your choosing. However, if tickets are not cancelled prior to the tour being conducted, Chew Philly Food Tours incurs all costs related to the tickets, and are no longer able to offer rescheduling/complimentary tickets. We thank you again for your feedback, and apologize that you were unable to attend the tour on the date that you scheduled it for.
