"Matt was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and passionate about the food."
"I gave my wife this food tour of Philadelphia as a Christmas present. We booked our tour to correspond with an overnight stay in the city. The spring weather was spectacular on the day of the tour. Our group consisted of 10 people of various ages. The walking pace was fine and no one had trouble keeping up with the tour leader. My wife & I enjoyed the non-food stops at Macy's and the former First Pennsylvania Bank building for architectural sightseeing. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this tour to anyone, whether they are familiar with Philadelphia or not."
"Rochelle was our tour guide for the Decadent Gourmet Tour in Philly, and she was incredible. She knew so much about the food, artwork and history of the points we stopped at along the tour. She was very prompt with getting us our samples to taste. She was so friendly and made the tour a pleasant and very fun experience. "
