Tiffany R
Willow Street, PA107 contributions
My husband and I recently visited Philadelphia for a date day for my birthday. We are from the Lancaster, PA area. As part of our trip we enjoyed the Flavors of Philadelphia food tour. Our tour guide, Matt, was awesome. He was friendly, personable, and clearly enjoyed his job. We enjoyed learning about the history of different things in Philadelphia and learned a great deal of new things about the city that we didn't know before.

Regarding the food, perhaps, the food on the tour itself was better suited to people from out of the state. Being a Lancaster, PA local, there were two items on the food tour that I have eaten several times at home. It was a little disappointing to expect a tour of things I could "only get in Philly" and to have two items featured on the tour that I have several times a month at home.

In the Reading Terminal Market, there was an ice cream stand that was one of the original's in the Market. That would have been an amazing item to have at the end of the tour, verses just looking at it. The pretzels were good and I get that they started in Philly, but maybe a local pretzel shop would have been more fun than one that is a chain.

I guess, I was hoping for a more "hole in the wall" type experience. However, there were Texas locals on the tour with us who thoroughly enjoyed the tour. So I would definitely recommend this tour for people who are a little further from Philly, or for local people who are going on the tour more for history than for food.

Hi Tiffany. Thanks for your compliments on our Guide and we're glad that you enjoyed our tour altogether! We understand that some of our food selections may be available outside of Philly but hope that our stories of our vendors and the significance of the food to Philadelphia helped make our tour fun and original. We value your ideas and will certainly will take your suggestions into consideration. We'd love to see you on our other food tours, which are more focused on neighborhood gems or particular cuisines during your next visit to Philly!

We are from Kansas City and tasted foods that are different for us that we wouldn't have tried on our own, and it was all fresh, hot, and delicious. My two teenage grandkids enjoyed it. The guide was very personable and made us all feel very welcomed to his city. There were 7 of us with the tour guide, so we were all involved in the conversation even though we kept some distance between us because of COVID-19. I would recommend the tour if you're new to downtown Philadelphia.

First of all, this was my first time touring Phili so I wanted an experience that would take me to some ice food spots that would get me a taste of Phili. Katelyn did just that. She was fantastic. The tour started at 1:30 and ended around 4:15. Got to get a little history of Phili and some important landmarks and locations. Not only did I get to learn, but I enjoyed some good, diverse foods too. It was overall a pleasurable experience and I would recommend this for anyone who is a first time visitor or even a repeat visitor who just wants a better experience as well as a mini tour in the heart of Phili. Best of all, you end up at Reading Terminal Market that has a ton of different foods to trial so that’s also great.

This was a wonderful experience. Adam was our guide. He was knowledgeable, funny and did a great job at keeping everyone interested in the history of the food we were trying. It was all so tasty! Being that this was a walking tour, we had the opportunity to see other buildings/sites in which Adam also took the time to share the history and culture of in downtown Philadelphia. Overall we were VERY happy with our experience. We would recommend it to anyone deciding whether or not to go for it. You won’t be disappointed. :)

First time in Philly! So glad we chose City Food Tour! Matt not only shared the great food the city is known for, but many interesting food facts AND peppered it with history of the city itself. We made several unexpected stops and learned even more history of various buildings. Loved our final stop at the City Market...you could spend many hours there! Would love to return and explore more. Well done Matt! Thank you for a great afternoon! Bill and Sally 6/16

This tour was much more than we expected! Caitlyn shared many historical facts with us regarding the restaurants, buildings/architecture, and origins of the foods! She welcomed all our questions and made us feel very comfortable asking them. She also fostered opportunities for us to get to know the other guests in the tour. She never made us feel rushed. She gave us plenty of time for pictures and conversation but we never lingered longer than needed. She was always professional, kind, and welcoming. She seemed to have an excitement and love for the city herself. We had a wonderful time! We highly recommend taking this tour. You won't be disappointed.

This was our first city food tour and thanks to the great experience with Kaitlyn in Philly, it won’t be our last. So much about an area can be learned through its food and Kaitlyn did a fabulous job conveying many wonderful food traditions in Philadelphia. We had opportunities to taste a variety of local specialties, walk through a portion of the city, learn some of the back stories that you don’t get with traditional tours and interact with interesting people in the group. Highly recommend!

It was a good tour. I didn’t get our tour guides name (The pointy nose guy) but he was funny and well informed. The food was delicious, but wish we had more places to visit. Overall i recommend this if you want to know about the city and try it’s food and learn about the best spots to eat.

My tour was with Adam. It was a small Sunday group with me and a separate group consisting of three friends. Adam was a great guide keeping us engaged, making us laugh, and showcasing Philly’s flavor. He gave great recommendations as well, he knows his stuff! I can confidently say this is a great tour to do as a solo traveler and it would be great for a group of any size as well. The pacing was good and it was the right mix of information and eating. Thanks Adam!!

Our guide Owen was very fun and knowledgeable, and he took us to some places we would otherwise have missed. We enjoyed the food, but found that the value of the food compared to food tours we have done in other cities was low. The price was comparable to what we have paid for other food tours, but the food sampled was very cheap in comparison. By those standards, the tour is kind of expensive.

Thank you for your kind remarks on Owen and our tour altogether! Our prices are based on market research from other tours in Philadelphia and food tours across other major cities. The other food tours that we offer do have an elevated cuisine at a different price point, and those may agree with your previous experiences' pricing more closely. We appreciate you sharing your experiences with us and value reviews from al of our guests, and will take this as an opportunity to continue comparing our price point to other tours. Thank you again for joining us on our tour. We hope to see you again on one of our other food tours!
