Amazing tour in my own city!

After a cancelled trip my boyfriend and I were left trying to stay busy in our own city. I am so thankful I found Jacquie! We had a great time touring in our own backyard. Couldn’t have asked for a more knowledgeable and down to earth guide. It was clear that she loves what she is doing and Philly is lucky to have her! Would love to do another tour with her. Also important to note that her covid precautions left no germ behind. We had everything we needed to stay safe while enjoying samples and lunch.

Epic food 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.

Jackie the owner and our tour guide is gorgeous inside and out. A wealth of history of the Italian Market area. Tour gives you a taste of pizza, olive oil, chips and salsa, cheese, coffee, and a cannoli. We go to meet her new guide Michael who was also a joy to be with yesterday. Highly recommend this tour!!

Everyone in my party was impressed from start to finish with Jacqui. Felt like we were hanging out with a celebrity. From growing up in the area and her day job working in food industry, she is obviously respected and loved by the wonderful people you interact with at the fantastic tour stops as well as people you bump into along the streets. The food was certainly amazing, but combined with her insights and playful attitude made it an experience. DO THIS TOUR with Jacqui - her inside and intimate knowledge of the history and places and all the hidden gems along the market will make it a memorable experience for you too.

A good tour guide knows all of the...

A good tour guide knows all of the context for the sites, sounds and smells that they show - Chef Jacqui was a first-rate tour guide and went above and beyond, to the point where she told us the backstory of the concrete embossing on the South Philly sidewalks I asked. Our tour included amazing coffee at Anthony's, cheese and proscuitto at DiBruno's, the flat out best olive oil and balsamic vinegar we've had at the Taproom, San Ramon's tostadas and tortillas and VERY hot salsa, a stop into a pasta shop for some homemade mozzarella that will make you question any other cheese, lunch at Ralph's and pastry at Isgro. We left full of outstanding food and taste experiences but more than that, Jacqui gave us a feel for the neighborhood, the shops, how the community has progressed and expanded in the last 100 years, and explanations for everything. You know the feeling when you're with a friend who is really passionate about something, and they get you into the fold without being over the top? That was our morning in the Italian Market. It's also the only tour that operates every day, so if you want a little early in the week meat and cheese festivities, this is your choice.

Jacquie led our VIP tour yesterday and she knows the people and places that make up this South Philly jewel. My 3 friends and I had an amazing time getting an up close and personal look at the Itslian Market. We learned so much about olive oils and cheese and meatball making! Delicious tastings all along the way. After the tour, my friends and I circled back to the shops and each headed home with shopping bags full of goodies.
