Taste of Philly Food Tour (Winter-Spring 2020)
NOTE: Spring tours suspended due to the coronavirus. But the Market is open Mondays through Saturdays if you'd like to explore on your own.

Philly is famous for its cheesesteaks, hoagies and pretzels. Learn the story behind these and other local food favorites, and the vibrant and historic Reading Terminal Market where they're sold during this 75-minute Market-based walking tour. Also see pretzels being twisted, hear the story behind the Breyers Ice Cream logo and find out where Milton Hershey got the idea for Hershey's Kisses -- in other words, fun history that has nothing to do with our government! Tour was written and is frequently led by food writer Carolyn Wyman, the author of the definitive "Great Philly Cheesesteak Book" (Running Press), "Spam: A Biography" (Harcourt) and "Jell-O: A Biography" (Harcourt), featured on NPR's "Fresh Air," "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" and "Jay Leno."

All tours include several small food bites and the "Philly Insider Eats Sheet," a guide to local restaurants. No charge for kids younger than 7. Plan time before or after the tour to eat a meal and explore the Market on your own. Two-hour reduced rate parking available at the Parkway Garage, 12th and Filbert (entrance on 12th between Arch and Filbert) and the Hilton Garage, 11th and Arch, with a $10 Market purchase. Advanced reservations are the only way to guarantee your spot.
