Adam was very good and knowledgeable about the city. I would rather had finished were we started. I know more about the city now then I started.

Great experience

Katelyn was amazing . She was late getting to the starting point but she more than made up for it with her energy and enthusiasm. The reason for only 4 stars is mostly because the website says it is wheelchair accessible but there are a couple of stops with multiple stairs. We didn’t need a wheelchair but were unable to do stairs. Katelyn made it work but I think it should be noted on the website and explain that it takes special accommodations.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Thank you for your understanding and sharing this feedback with us. Although some of our stops include stairs, we have alternative locations and routes that we take when guests are unable to do stairs and hope that your tour was still an enjoyable and comfortable experience. Katelyn is such a wonderful Guide and our team knows how to take amazing care of our guests, and we hope this wasn't too inconvenient during your tour. We're glad you enjoyed everything else about the tour!

Not a good experience

Disappointing. Unfortunately the guide never showed. We waited at the designated meeting spot for 30 minutes then contacted customer service. The owner reached out and told us he did not know what happened to the guide. He apologized, and issued a refund. As this was our planned activity for our first and only day in Philly we were left hungry and scrambling for planning the day on our own.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
We are incredibly sorry for what happened and are still unsure what may have happened with the Guide. This is embarrassing and no excuse can make up for us failing to provide you with the experience that you had anticipated. Please know that this is not the level of service that we are known for and we certainly hope that you still enjoyed your time in Philadelphia and any of the recommendations we were able to give.

Both the guide and the food were amazing. Definitely worth the money. Out of the five foods we liked the cheese steak the best.

Eh. The guide, Adam, was wonderful. And I enjoyed his history and other info. Tour is a bit over priced, plus parking costs $40 in all the area decks, no street parking within about a mile. But glad I did it.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
We are very pleased to hear that you had fun with the Tour Guide and are happy that you enjoyed our tour. But we appreciate your feedback. We do pride ourselves in being more affordable than other food tours in Philly and nationwide, but certainly understand the implications of costs. Being in a major city, parking is not as easy as other areas, but we are still happy to hear that everything else was enjoyable for you. Thanks again for this feedback.

10/10 with Adam and the flavors of Philly.

Adam was our guide, he had a great personality, was fun and knowledgeable, and really made our experience great!! Not to mention the food was insane! Tomato pie was a revelation, and I realize now I had never had a true Philly cheesesteak…chefs kiss, was truly amazing. And everything in between from Pretzels with spicy mustard to the most delicious cookies and donuts. Would absolutely recommend. We came for the food but would come back for the experience.

This a a great tour. Katelyn was very informative and entertaining. The tour is well paced so that you’re not constantly eating but are quite full by the end of the tour having learned a great deal of Philadelphian history along with enjoying the city’s signature foods.

I enjoyed the food, not so much how long we were at the wine cellar place. Would have loved a little more of the pretzel instead of having to split it. But overall e joyed my experience.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
We're sorry that our tour didn't blow you away in every aspect. We usually only spend about 15-20 minutes at each stop and try to portion all of our food to satisfy all guests' preferences and pace the appetite over the span of the entire tour, but will consider your feedback and aim to make every future guest as happy as possible. We'd hope to have you back on another one of our food tours to earn your five-star rating!
