We went on the Ethnic Eats Tour recently and had a blast. Our tour guide Eric was extremely knowledgeable not only about the places we stopped, but the general area. He made the group feel comfortable and genuinely wanted us to enjoy our experience. This tour is not for the picky eater. There were a variety of different flavors, food,... More

Our tour guide, Judy, was very knowledgeable, funny and welcoming. As a native Philadelphian and experienced guide, she had a lot to add to the experience. The food was good and a great sampling of Philly fare! I was especially impressed that they made accommodations for me as a vegetarian, as other tours have not in the past. One tip:... More

This is honestly the best value tour I have ever been on! We take tours often when we travel, since I am a tour guide for beer in Portland myself. But this company, this tour and this tour guide blows everyone away. We took the very popular Tastes of Philly Tour with Judy and were so happy. We got to... More

We had been looking forward to our Prohibition Tour for weeks and it did not disappoint. We met our guide Adam at Time for our first drink and then proceeded to 1 Tippling Place and the Ranstead Room. Adam did a great job sharing his knowledge of the Prohibition era making it a fun learning experience for everyone.

My boyfriend and I did the ethnic foods tour with Eric, one of the co-owners, and wow! He sure knew what he was talking about. He answered every question we had and I feel like I learned a lot about an area of Philadelphia I would have never otherwise known about. The food was interesting and tasty. The tour offered...

Stopped at four restaurants; Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian and Indian; all within a few blocks of each other. They each served one course; all very tasty and unique. We were with four our couples of varying ages and stopped at the local Buddhist temple for exposure to the history of Buddhism-your camera was welcome.

We loved our Ethnic Eats food tour with Eric, one of City Food Tours' co-owners. We sampled Thai, Indian, Vietnamese and Indonesian cuisine-all delicious! One of the unique aspects of the tour was a visit to a Buddhist temple-very enlightening! Eric had a real knack for imparting interesting background information while allowing guests to mingle and chat. We highly recommend... More

This tour was so much fun! Our guide infused history, culture and diverse tastes into an informative afternoon. Our visit to the Buddhist temple included a very condensed, understandable explanation of the basis is the religion. I've been on many long-winded tour of temples IN Asia, and this was the best! Who knew that this part of Philadelphia had these... More

I think this is the best city tour I've ever done. I took the classic tastes of Philly tour - a really great introduction to the classic tastes of Philadelphia, combined with a gentle stroll around some of the areas not seen on the historic tourist Trail. There is a generous amount of food as you go around the tour,... More
