Since 2011, Chew Philly Food Tours has told the stories of small, local businesses through memorable & delicious food experiences to native Philadelphians and tourists alike. Our Philly food tour tastings include secret menus and personal food demos, guided by tour leaders who are are engaging, knowledgeable, and always local. Join us for an award-winning Chew Philly Food Tour and never look at Philadelphia’s foods the same way again.


Savor 6+ tastings on each of our original concept walking food tours, treating you to some of Philly's little-known culinary secrets, (think trademarked sandwiches and secret menus, served up by the owners themselves).
Relax and enjoy time with friends during the ample seated time we've arranged for you, in between strolling scenic & historic paths and treating yourself to the best of Philly's foods detailed in our 2019 Tastebook, an exclusive benefit of a Chew Philly tour.
All food tastings, enough for a substantial progressive lunch, are included in the ticket price of our Philadelphia food tours. And if you don't enjoy, we'll buy you another tour. It's our empty plate guarantee, and something that sets us apart from similar Philly food tour experiences.
"The tour is perfectly designed: the selection of food is delicious and varied, it gives you a very good overview through tastings from local, family-owned shops. Our tour guide April was awesome: she was very friendly and very knowledgeable. Definitely recommended!"

"This is a must do when traveling to Philadelphia. Only a short cab or Uber ride away from "downtown" takes you to a beautiful little neighborhood with amazing food and great atmosphere. The tour guide provides history along the way and serves up enough food to make you stuffed. 10/10, would definitely recommend!"

"If you want an experience that everyone can enjoy, then this is for you! We had friends visiting from out of town who found out about the tour online. We all had a blast. The food, the company, and the conversation sparked by each stop provided for a very interesting day. Our guide Amy was fun and witty, and provided great insight into the local community and cuisine. This is something we'll do again for sure!"

We did the "Authentic Philly Food Tour" this past Friday and I think I'm still full from it. The food was great, the knowledge gained was great and the tour guide was great, not much more can be said really. If you like to explore cities through food like we do then this is a must!

Yummy food, easy walking and an education! Best soft pretzel (Tasty Twisters), tomato pie (Marchiano's), Philly cheesesteak (Sorrentino's) and French macaron (Nutmeg Cake Design) EVER. And lots more, in a charming neighborhood with a great local guide, rich history and a train to downtown. Our first time in Manayunk--a fun birthday gift for my wife.

This was a great tour with great food, not to mention the architecture is amazingly beautiful. Our guide Bethany was amazing. I had my first slice of tomato pie, stuffed pretzel bread and Philly cheese steak. I would highly recommend this tour.
