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.
Very inspiring!!!

I live in Delaware and unfortunately never took advantage of visiting Philadelphia more often. This tour inspired us to make more day trips to explore the city

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.
