Overview
While visiting any new city, you’d prefer to spend your time trying new things rather than finding your way from place to place. This Philadelphia pub-crawl tour takes care of the hassle of finding your way through unfamiliar territory as a guide leads you to three popular pubs picked out based on your groups' interests. Plus, three beer tastings and a snack are included to help you become more accustomed with Philly’s bar scene.

Had a Henry as our knowledgable guide, and brewery himself, walked us to few bars with great in-between stops for a bit of history and city architectural design. It was a chilly night and he did a great job keeping it moving after our first stop a city hall. For some reason

I did a tour with Dick as the guide. I was by myself and 3 others joined. It was very informative and we learnt a lot about the beer and history in the region. Dick and the others were so friendly and it was perfect for someone from overseas who knew nothing about the area. A

Our Philly on Tap tour is a great option for solo travelers who want history and beer but who also want to experience a little bit of the social scene of Philly. I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed the experience. Dick does an amazing job of highlighting aspects of Philly that go completely unnoticed. Thank you for joining us on our brew tour of the city!

What better way to ring in 2020 than with delicious local brews and an expert guide? The history of Philadelphia beer-making is vast, and the local breweries are top notch. Our Philly on Tap tour is a great way to experience both. We thank you for leaving this review and wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

What a guy. I came late and Alex came to meet me and welcomed me with open arms and snacks. He's so knowledgeable on ALL beer/food/ Philadelphian history. I'm not even a drinker but ....I'll be back next year.

You don't need to be a "drinker" in order to enjoy our Philly on Tap tour, as Alex was brilliantly able to show. This tour is not only for beer-lovers, but history/culture/food-lovers alike. It highlights everything that Center City Philly has to offer (which is a lot). We look forward to seeing you again next year!

My husband and I recently took the small craft beer tour and had a ton of fun. Our tour guide Henry was awesome and took us to 3 great breweries and was very knowledgeable about Philadelphia. I highly recommend the tour and would do it again.

Thank you for this great review! Our Philly on Tap tour is a crowd favorite. Henry is one of our local beer experts; he loves to show-off the Philly brew scene. If you are ever back in Philly, take a look at some of the other tours we have to offer!
