Even with the limitations of Covid, this was a wonderful tour of a part of Philly We’d never explored. Chuck brings history, culture, and his love of these neighborhoods to guide his guests to share his passion and feel at home.

Taste of the Italian Market Tour
What a delightful way to make our way through the very authentic Italian market! Jacquie is so well-versed not only about the food but also recounted a fascinating history of immigration and culture. Food choices were delicious. Jacquie knows everyone intimately in the market and really brought a sense of community to the tour. On top of all that, she is funny and truly personable. Highly, highly recommend.

Best Tour of 9th Street Italian Market

Iconic 9th Street Italian Market Experience Tour in Philadelphia
Nina, our guide, was the best. Not only did we walk ninth street but along the way we learned the history of the area, the stores and some artists. A stop in the shops turned out to be heaven with the smell of the cheese, pasta, pastry and the welcome of the shop owners made us all feel as we were part of their family. Needless the tastings brought us back to buy up as much as we could to bring home. I would do it again and bring more friends.

Taste of the Italian Market Tour
This was an excellent tour. The guide is so knowledgeable about the history of the area, she really kept our interest. Loved hearing about the different shops. Tasting the different balsamic vinegar and olive oils and asking for her advise as a chef was truly the highlight. The Sicilian pizza was amazing. Take the time to go on this tour. You won't be disappointed. It was the highlight of our trip. When we come back we will plan to use this amazing guide again to explore another area of Philly.
