Tailoring Tours to Align with Educational Goals

Imagine lessons coming to life as students explore local markets, taste diverse cuisines, and engage in interactive culinary activities. These experiences not only captivate students' interests but also provide tangible connections to the subjects they study. Here's how:

Beyond History: A Distinctive Alternative Breaking Away from Traditional Tours

For far too long, history tours have been the conventional choice for student groups. But how is that different enough from being taught the same material in the classroom? Let's spice things up by engaging their senses in a hands-on, delicious exploration of Philadelphia's historic and diverse heritage.

Customization for Your Budget and Schedule

We understand that no two school trips are the same, and that's why City Food Tours offers unparalleled flexibility. Tailoring experiences to fit different budgets and schedules is our specialty. Whether we hop on your bus for a quick ride around the city or an hours-long venture for 100 walking through a neighborhood, we have customizable options to suit your needs. 

Ensuring Safety and Reliability

Safety is paramount when it comes to student trips. We prioritize the well-being of all guests from our well-planned itineraries to our experienced guides, we've got every detail covered. Our thousands of tour guests per year, reputation of stellar reviews, and countless restaurant partnerships could vouch for us. This is why we are a trusted tour operator for Philadelphia's conventions, visitor centers, travel agents, hotels, and cultural alliance.

Philadelphia's food culture is a tapestry woven with diverse flavors, iconic dishes, and hidden gems waiting to be discovered. City Food Tours invites student groups to immerse themselves in this culinary wonderland, providing an insider's view of the city's gastronomic scene.
