All The Yummy Details

Looking for a unique way to learn Philadelphia’s history? Eat and drink your way through it! This happy hour tour takes place in the most historically-significant section of Philadelphia: Old City. Be sure to arrive with an empty belly - the traditional tastes, beverages, and history served will leave you stuffed! Between bites, you'll walk the cobblestone alleyways of the colonials, learn about Philadelphia’s founding and growth, and see what makes our city one of the greatest (and most delicious) in America.

Meeting at a restaurant right across the street from Independence Hall, we’ll start you off strong with hearty veggie-fish hushpuppies, a fresh veggie dish, and a delicious and light cider. This tour will take you to countless must-see locations for Philly visitors and native alike, while hearing stories and lots of fun information from our knowledgeable tour guides. After strolling through some of Philadelphia’s most historic landmarks, we’ll take you to one of the city’s oldest restaurants for a modernized colonial dish and a smooth (and strong) cocktail. The next stop offers a Pennsylvania beer and filling colonial fare to soak it up. Finally, we’ll take you to the United State’s oldest confectionery for their sweet tastes to finish the tour.
