Wake up to an amazing culinary opportunity with the Chew Philly Tour company's Authentic Philly Food Tour! This amazing and super-filling walking tour around the historic neighborhood of Manayunk lasts about two and a half hours and is offered most Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in the warm season. The tours will start at 11:30 or 12 each afternoon and are actually a complementary feature of purchasing the Philadelphia City Pass, if that is something you are interested in while here to stack up the sightseeing (and eating) deals. On this particular tour along the Manayunk Canal you and your group will be chowing down on some of the best local cheesecakes, tomato pies, soft pretzels, and yes, even authentic cheese steak! Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and save plenty of room to taste it all during this amazing and immersive culinary and cultural tour of Philly.
During this particular tour your group will learn many facts about the historic neighborhood of Manayunk, the 300 plus year old neighborhood that is actually considered the very first "Philadelphia Historic Area." Learn all about the hidden gems, historic hideouts, and various local culture-filled mom-and-pop shops, as well as have the opportunity to tour and taste some of the newest and most respected local businesses and eateries. The tasting will be in the same style of a progressive lunch, so try not to fill up too much in one spot! The tour will show you delis, bakeries, and specialty shops, as well as the scenic Schuylkill River and Manayunk Canal bordering some of the most scenic green spaces. Learn celebrity, city history, and the cheese steak history itself. It is wise to plan well in advance and be sure to check the online calendar for possible sellouts, as it is to be sure to save room for dessert!
