Even with the limitations of Covid, this was a wonderful tour of a part of Philly We’d never explored. Chuck brings history, culture, and his love of these neighborhoods to guide his guests to share his passion and feel at home.

We had wanted to do a food tour while in Philly, but they were all booked up. We ended up going with this tour, and it was really wonderful! We learned about the history of the area, some of the local artists, toured the residential areas as well as several of the shops in the market. Even though it is not considered a food tour, we did get several small tastes along the way! Annett was a wonderful, knowledgeable, entertaining guide who knows the area well. Would definitely recommend this tour while in Philly, my husband, son & I thoroughly enjoyed it!!
