10/10 with Adam and the flavors of Philly.
Thomas_C

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.

Owen our tour guide was very knowledgeable on a lot of Phillies history and is a very fun guy! We made 5 stops with alot of historical information along the way .. everything was delicious-Philly cheesesteaks, tomato pie, Pretzels, Cookies!!! Do this tour!!

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.

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!

Matt was the absolute best tour guide. Food was awesome! He was so knowledgeable and had an awesome personality! We sampled pizza (tomato pie), Philly pretzels, Philly Cheesesteaks, and a do it and chocolate chip cookie for dessert. We were so full that we had to make our dinner reservation later!

The honor was all ours to be able to share our Saturday afternoon with your party. Philly's best foods are hard to resist and we hope you still had an appetite for dinner that evening. Congratulations to your family on a wonderful post-wedding celebration weekend. We'd hope to see everyone again soon!

It was just alright. Food was just soso. The tour group size was way to big!!! You could do a self guided tour in reading terminal by yourself.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
I'm sorry that our food tour did not exceed your expectations. We designed our food tour to show the foods that Philly is most famously known for and hope that the "add on", foods, sites, and stories outside of the Reading Terminal Market were of interest to you. Weekends are definitely our busiest days, and your tour was one person shy of our maximum capacity, but we will take your comment into consideration when capping our future tours. We are always open to any suggestions you have for improvements and hope to be able to have you on one of our (smaller-sized) food tours in the future.
