Olive oil tasting, the oldest cheese store in Philly and tasting and an immersion into the Italian and Hispanic culture we had homemade tortillas also. The Magic Gardens were just fun. Our lead...she was a local that knew the ins-and-outs and she led a wonderful tour in knowledge of both the neighborhood and how it related to greater Philly culture. This was no doubt the best tour we took in Philly....including the Revolutionary War ones!
Nina was a fabulous guide. So knowledgeable we didnt miss a thing. She also got us discounts at the shops we visited along the way. Top that off with hot bread and mozorella balls courtesy of Nina, and the day was sensational. Not sure what we enjoyed more: the in-depth info about the area, the food, or the Mosaic Garden.
This was a small group tour my husband and I did in June, 2017. The guide was awesome--easy-going, helpful and very familiar with the area and its offerings. We tried several yummy snacks as we learned about the history of the South Philly and the market. The Magic Gardens were very unusual. Though not to my artistic tastes, you had to admire the ingenuity. The artist had done a lot to improve the South Philly neighborhood which also garnered my admiration. Highly recommend.
We had an incredible guide who lived in Philly and is Italian. Talk about someone that really knew his stuff. While the market was great the Magic Gardens Mosaic Gallery and the tour of the houses that had mosaics were incredible. Don't miss this tour of Philly. We also ate at a small restaurant in South Philly cash only that was incredible. Your guide will give you great restaurant tips if you ask.
This was so much fun! Nina is an excellent tour guide with so much personality and zest! The food was delicious and the art was fun. We loved this tour!
We had a great experience and really learned about the history of the area and Philadelphia. We even ate Philly Steaks at a classic food place called Jim's. Nina was our guide and she was great: very nice and very informed about the area, the history. Definitely would recommend again. p.s. The company says they have small tour sizes -- I asked what that meant and 20 is the limit. We were really lucky and there were only 3 people.
Our tour guide, Ben, was amazing! He was very friendly, funny, engaging and put all his efforts in to make sure we learned everything we could about the South of Philly. He was very knowledgeable and made sure we had a great time. He even purchased our group a dessert from the local bakery! Great experience
Tour was very good and worth the money Our guide Nina was informative and very pleasant The only negative is the parking in this area of Philly is crazy Only 2 hour parking and very scarce at that Had to leave the tour to feed the meter. A hint to longer parking would be helpful 3 1/2 hour tour and 2 hour parking is not a good thing
