Our first stop was for pizza, then handmade pretzels, then philly cheesesteak with cheese fries on the side and finished with doughnuts and chocolate chip cookies. We even saw an old bank that has been turned into a steakhouse with the downstairs vault holding lots of wine. Very informative and our guide was a true Philly girl!

The tour was exactly as it sounds and more! Judy is friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about her job. She was very engaging to all in our group. The experience of eating at local eateries and the history lessons made for an enjoyable afternoon.

Our first time to Philly, and we only had 36 hours. We always look for food tours. Judy took us to some great spot, where we had Tomato Pie, Cheesesteak, Soft Pretzels, and finished with a 4th Street Cookie and a Cake Ball, in Reading Terminal Market! It was a great tour, and Judy did a splendid job telling us... More

I believe Judy was our tour guide. She was an amazing tour guide who was very knowledgable about the history of Philadelphia. I would love to book her for a history tour of Philadelphia, but I would never book flavors of Philadelphia food tour again. It was $200 for 5 people. No one finished their food because it was either... More

I booked this for 6 women for an easy start to a Bachlorette party. It was so much fun. The guide was wonderful, and the food was great. Don't eat lunch you'll leave SOOO full. really a great day thing to do and you get to learn about the city too!

Judy was our tour guide and did an outstanding job! Weather was frigid and she adjusted the tour so we would only walk 2-3 blocks before going inside. She is extremely friendly, organized, experienced. Tour price included a soft pretzels, slice of tomato pie, 1/2 a cheese steak, some cheese fries, a doughnut and cookie. Well worth the money and...

Tomato pie? I mean really??? Sounds like pizza base to me. But not after we’ve taken the Flavours of Philly tour. I’ve never had tomato pie before but I think that the one they served us at Joe’s Pizza was hands-down THE. BEST. The crust was cookie thick and crisp, and the balance of flavours of the tomato filling was... More

I thought our guide was very well versed on the eateries we went to and on Philly tourism highlights. She was very aware of her responsibilities as guide, hostess, waitress and storyteller and fulfilled all of these. I apologize for forgetting her name--Judy possibly? We tried tomato pizza (no cheese--I loved it), cheeze whiz fries, cookies, cheesesteak (not an ounce... More

Judy was a fantastic tour guide and super knowledgeable about the city of Philadelphia. My husband and I really wanted to go on this tour but only 1 space was left. The owner personally helped Us open another spot on the tour so we could both attend that day. Thanks Flavors of Philly food tour !

Our guide was very good and knew a lot about the city but the tour and food were nothing special. There were really only four stops for food and not once did a proprietor come out and talk to us. It was almost as if we were no big deal to them which is too bad because food tours are... More
