Owner description: Voted BEST CITY TOUR by Philly A-List and commended by The Travel Channel as: "Excellent food tours...which lets guests sample beloved savory and sweet food found only in Philly while learning about local architecture, history and culture"! Our tours are original concept, meaning that we were the first & original food tour in each of the neighborhoods in which we operate, with long-standing relationships with our tasting locations. We want to impress that our Philadelphia Guided Tours are non-touristy, REAL neighborhoods we'll be showing you around - featuring foods from locally-owned businesses celebrated for their cultural Philly foods. And for those native to the Philadelphia area, we'll show you hidden foodie gems you may have missed, up-and-coming food trends, & in-depth history of Philadelphia's 300-year-old neighborhoods. Peruse our 400+ reviews, then head to our site to reserve your space, (we're not exaggerating, nearly every tour sells out!). We can't wait to meet you!

Our food tour of Manayunk was great. The day was very hot but Amy our guide was perky and full of information and great food. They took extra care to make sure we were well hydrated and walked in the shade as much as possible. The food was wonderful, from tomato pie, steak sandwiches, bacon-cheeseburger with peanut butter-YUMM! The cupcakes were great too! I would recommend this to people who enjoy learning about the area and eating the local foods from small businesses.

On a beastly hot summer day, my husband and I enjoyed a great food tour of the Philadelphia neighborhood of Manayunk. Amy, our guide was fantastic, very upbeat, and added those little touches to assure we were as comfortable as possible on the very hot and humid day. The food stops were classic Philadelphia fare, water ice,tomato pie and pepperoni bread, soft pretzels, cheesesteaks, inventive burgers ( for this I have to commend Lucky's Last Stop on Main St.) cappuccino, and red velvet cupcake. With a little bit of walking along with added history, great food and nice people to share the experience with, it was a great way to have lunch!

We're so glad that you felt you enjoyed a 5 star experience, and that our tour was a good value. However, we are disappointed that you felt you weren't able to ask questions while on the tour. While at tasting locations, walking along the towpath, and throughout the tour each participant should feel comfortable to ask for additional details or information from our tour guides. Thanks to your valuable feedback, we'll review this with our tour guides, and make sure that they allow ample time for additional questions. Thank you again for your feedback! We truly appreciate you taking the time to write a review for us.

Have to be honest my knowledge of Manayunk has been "tainted" by info shared over the years about Main St and the great restaurant and bar scene there; little did I know there were such magnificent food gems in the surrounding area! Our tour guide Bennie was amazing - she provided us with just the right mix of history and humor to make the day that much more enjoyable. Would recommend the tour to visitors from out of town, but also for born and bred Philly folks who haven't explored their home town enough - I count myself in that group. Great food and great time with friends! Manayunk, I'll be back!

This was a great tour. You get to try a lot of different kinds of food and the portions were large. I could barely walk after the tour was over. I highly recommend this tour. It supports a lot of the small family owned businesses.
