We toured with Shelly and it was a pleasure to be guided through South Philly by her. She was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot throughout the duration of the tour. We’re excited to do more tours with her in the future!

My husband and I had a wonderful time spending the morning exploring the city with Chuck. He shared details and insights that we would never have gotten on our own. It was the perfect way to kick off our weekend in Philly and Chuck provided a very helpful sheet with recommendations and more information that we used for the remainder of our trip.

Could serve as a survey class about the evolution of The 9th Street Italian Market

Iconic 9th Street Italian Market Experience Tour in Philadelphia
Howard is so very knowledgeable about Philadelphia. He transformed the tour from a simple here’s The Italian Market/have a cheese steak into a living history of the history of migration in and around Philadelphia. Each ethnic group’s history was exemplified with a personal story from their past and present; ultimately each story culminates with a taste of the person’s culinary product or artwork. This is a tour for the Philly native and visitor. Absolutely fantastic. -Shurea W.

It was a great morning! Shelly was our guide and she gave us a great tour. We really weren’t expecting the treat of the fresh Italian bread, fresh cheese and some delicious nuts midway through but it was awesome as we hadn’t really had time for breakfast and it was so local and delicious! This was our favorite tour In Philly.
