Scrumptious and a nice eclectic mix of food! We got to sample all of the places and foods that are unique to Philly, including cheesesteaks and Whoopie pie but also israeli food and great pizza. Adam was an informative and helpful guide, especially since we had our dog tagging along with us.

We had a wonderful afternoon with Nina in Philadelphia! Although we are quite familiar with the city and have been to many of it's fantastic restaurants, Nina was able to introduce us to some new dining spots - namely Dizengoff, Goldies, & SNAP Pizza - which all happen to be on the same block and were all fantastic. We also had additional food at the Reading Terminal Market - everything is good. All portions were very generous - much larger than some of the tiny bites I have had on other food tours. We decided to pace ourselves with the food and ended up with a decent sized bag of leftovers - enough for a late night snack or tomorrows lunch for both of us! Nina is a wealth of knowledge about food and the city of Philadelphia. She showed us some sculptures that we had never seen and shared detailed histories of several buildings. It was a delicious and informative couple of hours and would not hesitate to recommend the tour and especially Nina t anyone interested in the food and history of Philadelphia. I will definitely be bring any visitors on future tours with her. Thanks Nina!

Had a great time. The tour guide, Dick, was great. Very knowledgeable, focus was definitely on food but also learned interesting tidbits here and there about history and public art. Avoided overly touristy spots but covered all the Philly essentials. Recommended

Had a great tour with Alex, he was informative, fun and quirky. We ate plenty of great food and learned a lot. Meeting up was a bit of a cluster- the meeting place changed and we weren’t notified but after we called the main office they let us know where to go. Had a blast, thank you. Come hungry.

My wife and I are both foodies and absolutely loved this tour! First of all, if you can get Adam as your tour guide, he has a love for the food and history of Philadelphia and make the experience even better. The places we stopped all came with a great story and the food was all so unique and delicious. There's no way we would have been able to put something together like this ourselves and highly recommend booking the tour for a great food tour Philadelphia!

Can’t stress enough how excellent this tour was. Howard our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and informative, all while being engaging and friendly. The depth and diversity of food options in Philly can be crushed under the weight of the cheesesteak legacy, and this tour shows you there’s so much more going on. Come hungry.

Love the experience! Our tour guide Howard clearly knew his stuff. Not only about the food but the city itself. We had a great time and learned so much. It was more than enough food and we got sent off with a nice snack. Would definitely recommend!
