I LOVED this tour! I should have done this first! This was my first food tour and I had no idea how it would go and it was amazing. Our tour guide Katelyn knew so much information and history and the walk seemed shorter with all the stops for food and exploring. Had an amazing time and recommend to everyone to do a food tour first! Then you will know where to eat! We stopped at a couple of places for more later on!

Owen was our guide, and he was very good and knowledgeable about the city and the history, and had a few of his own interesting anecdotes thrown in that we enjoyed. The food was spaced out so we didn't get too full all at once! I would definitely recommend this activity.

Overall a fun tour with a little bit of insight about the history of Philly. Unfortunately food was kind of underwhelming, but maybe expectations were too high. Tour guide could’ve been a little more attentive and not sit by her phone while we were eating.
