It’s kind of like your private tour as you select what you want to eat, but with us we hope and expect you will also make new friends, share hometown stories, laugh, learn, explore the neighborhoods together, and definitely enjoy the food.

We share with our guests many important areas of Philadelphia that the other tours do not cover. At the end of the tour, we hope that each passenger will get off the bus and simply say, WOW! That was a great tour!

The Ride

Riding a first-class tour bus around the many areas of Philadelphia will give you an overall view of our daily city life and our ‘interesting’ people, all within 15 - 20 minutes of center city. Philadelphia is in the beginning of a huge resurgence in several of our downtown and outlying areas.

The number of new restaurants and upscale retail venues opening almost daily is quite staggering – each more interesting and offering more exciting original fare than the previous, but nothing compares to the appreciation of our everyday world-class gourmet junk food made with the very best local ingredients.


Your host is responsible to make the entire tour interesting and a fast-moving pleasure. They will share their knowledge of the history, culture and current entertainment in the city and answer every question you may have. However, if he or she doesn’t know an answer – please be kind as they may be busy concentrating on the food you ordered making sure it will be ready when you arrive at the next destination.

Everyone on the Tour should be ready to become one disciplined fun-loving team. A team focused on having a great time while eating the best gourmet junk food that Philadelphia has to offer. Of course, there can always be intelligent passionate discussions as to which of the many venues is the best, but we think we have chosen a broad and top-flight selection for you to enjoy.

Please note: If a well known venue has lost its crown – to a better quality and better tasting product, we will take you to the better venue.
