Philadelphia is a city rich in culture and cuisine: break away from the usual beaten path of Old City and join us on this walking tour where you’ll indulge in both the classic eats and undiscovered delights of Center City’s culinary scene!
Your local guide will meet you in the heart of the city and introduce you to the evolution of the city, from its historic roots as a melting pot of immigrants to today’s bustling downtown of skyscrapers and diverse architectural styles. We’ll follow the local lunch crowds passing through City Hall and heading to one of the oldest and largest indoor markets in the country, Reading Terminal Market.
This historic food hall has something for everyone, from cannolis to corndogs. We’ll explore the maze of the market as your guide narrates the history of the market and prepares you for a bite of the best of the market. While the stalls here feature Philadelphia staples like the soft pretzel and Pennsylvania Dutch scrapple, we’ll go for a true local favorite, the Philly cheesesteak.
You’ll may also get to see the trendier, modern-day side of the city along Sansom Street and discover Philly food innovations like creamy vegan shakes, locally-sourced mushroom pizza, and lick-the-bowl-clean New World hummus made from Old World recipes. Then you may sip on Fair Trade coffee at a fast-growing local start-up, one of many examples of Philly's social consciousness and move towards environmental sustainability.
If you want the best of Philly's foodie scene - this is the tour for you!
