A "Taste of Philadelphia" Tour (2.5 Hours)
More than cheesesteaks, cream cheese and a broken bell, get to know Philadelphia with both your eyes and taste buds.  Your professional guide and storyteller will showcase both the rich colonial history and the exciting modern metropolis that has become Philadelphia today – all while enjoying “classic tastes” of Philadelphia and plenty of frosty cold libations throughout the tour. At the end of the tour guests will walk back to the hotel or head off to enjoy an evening in Philly.  Register early! Space is limited!
