Overview
As local Philadelphians, we are extremely passionate about our local food, our city, and its extensive history. Philly is known for many things: our famous sports teams; important historical figures; the Rocky stairs; and, of course, our iconic foods. When you book this tour, you'll get to try delicious dishes that the locals know and love, and sample colonial era recipes enjoyed by the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Plus we'll show you how to find the best shops and restaurants, and provide other great tips to make your experience truly memorable. You'll finish our tour full of great food and have a better understanding of Philly culture, history, and how to live like a local. As always, there's our Secret Dish, which will only be revealed on the tour.
