Very informative and yummy tour around the most delicious eateries in downtown Philadelphia. A mix of flavors and history with fun stories and trivia. Our guide Alex was very nice and informed, and obviously loves the city, he customized the tour to accommodate our needs and his company was very pleasant. It is a walking tour that starts at the meeting point and ends at the famous Reading Terminal Market. It’s a treat for foodies but only if you like walking.
