Full description
Your Philadelphia food tasting tour begins at a restaurant across the street from the iconic Independence Hall. Start off with some hearty fritters and a fresh veggie dish accompanied by a deliciously light cider. From here, stroll through the picturesque streets of Philadelphia’s old colonial neighborhoods and see a selection of the city’s most historic landmarks. Arrive at the second stop of the day, one of the city’s oldest restaurants bursting with authentic American charm. Dine on a modernized colonial dish, washed down with a smooth and strong cocktail. At the next stop, enjoy some traditional Pennsylvanian beer before finally heading to America’s oldest confectionery store for a real sweet treat! The tour is a unique way to learn about Philadelphia’s colorful history, whilst making the most of happy hour. The walking tour combines visits to countless must-see sights, as well as off-the-beaten-path locations that you won’t find in traditional tourist books. Be sure to arrive on an empty belly, so you can have your fill of traditional dishes and boozy beverages.
