Con la ricca storia di Filadelfia e la sua litania di primati, non sorprende che il mercato italiano della 9a Strada sia il più antico mercato all'aperto dell'America. Fai una passeggiata guidata di 2 ore per le strade di questo quartiere di South Philadelphia, con le sue panetterie, i mercati e i negozi di specialità gastronomiche. Assaggia gli autentici cibi di Filadelfia, come la famosa bistecca di formaggio Philly, il sandwich tipico della città e le specialità agricole locali. Scegli tra una varietà apparentemente infinita di prodotti alimentari - formaggi, cioccolatini, frutta e verdura fresca, gastronomia e prodotti da forno e molto altro ancora.
I guess I'm just used to 'samples' from other tours through Viator as being a sample from each place and not me having to purchase a 'sample'. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and being a history buff, I did enjoy that part but felt for what I paid 'samples' should have been a part of this. Not only were they not a part of the tour ok, the bread at the very start was, a loaf of bread that everyone touched and shared but IF you wanted something to purchase, there were lines every where to stand and wait in. Not wanting to hold up the group, we ended up not purchasing no one else was and not getting to try the fare. Next time I've learned that I'l have to ask before signing up for a 'eating' tour again, I've done many 'eating tours' through Viator and this is the 1st that did not hold up to what they claimed.
This was one of the very best guided tours I have ever taken. Our guide, Ariel, was an encyclopedia of knowledge of the area. She was exceptionally personable, she knew so many of the vendors, and she made the tour highly personal. You could not go wrong taking this tour.
Together with three friends from Bucks county, PA we had a wonderful tour with Nina. She was knowledgeable, personable and very patient. We all live so close, but have never actually gone on a tour of the Market . . . without the tour, we would have missed so much. We will definitely recommend your tours without hesitation.! Thanks so much for a great time.
