Guide was fantastic, and the food was fabulous. Didn't know anything about Manyunk before we went, and hit quite a few highlights.
Our guide was great - he ran a good tour and was very personable. He shared stories about the area as we walked from place to place as well. We were a large group and he handled it well. There were many locals on the tour which is always a good sign.
The first stop was the best. I thought tomato pie sounded grose but it was wonderful! The stuffed bread was good too. We then got a huge soft pretzel which was good but so big I couldn't eat it all. Next was a peanut butter burger with jam dipping. It is just a quarter of a burger but very good. This stop also has bathrooms and they give you water. My husband asked to buy a Pepsi and they gave it to him for free. We then had half a cheesesteak which was very good and traditional in that it is just beef and cheese. We then had a chocolate and cappuccino. Now it was extremely hot so iced would have been appreciated but we had the hot version. It was the best coffee drink I have ever had. We ended with a red velvet cupcake which is flavoured with beets. I was stuffed at the end and so was my husband who has a big appetite. It was well worth the money.
We had a lot of fun! Tried the best Philly Cheese steak ever!, learned alittle bit of the Philadelphia history...It was a nice walk through an old neighborhood. The guide was awesome! The only concern I would have is, after the tour is done...you are on your own to find your way back to your car....and it could be quite a hike for someone older. Other than that....Loved it!
Nice walking food experience in the Manayunk township of Philadelphia. Be prepared to taste quite a bit of starchy food, ie. Tomato pie, soft pretzel, philly cheese steak, sticky bun, cup cake, peanut butter and jelly hamburger, coffee drink. I recommend you don't eat before your tour. I wish they provided a little more history and age of some of the buildings/churches.
