It was fun and had a great enthusiastic tour guide who was a pleasure to go with. We were a big group but went well. There is a lot of interesting details and historical facts covered and neat people we met. Had fun!

This outdoor walking tour was fantastic! Even though we've lived just a couple blocks from the Market for about 3 years, we learned so much! I would highly recommend this tour for visitors and residents of the Philly area alike!

Very enjoyable tour. Gives a nice historical summary of the area as well as history of some of the shops. Plan on giving ample time after the tour to roam around, shop and grab a bite to eat.

If combining neighborhood history with foodie culture sounds good to you, then don't miss this tour. At some of the locations we even met with the business owners and got first hand information; between them and the tour guide we were immersed in...continued

We knew we were in for a great tour as soon as Josh arrived, we have taken other tours with him and have nicknamed him "Mr. Enthusiasm". He did not disappoint! Lots of info and humor. The food samples were yummy.

Excellent mix of history, visits with merchants, and tasting some of the food from the markets. The guide, Trevor, was well known at the market and enhanced our tour.

It was very enjoyable, and Jason was an informative and personable guide. We learned the history of the area, met many of the shop owners, tasted samples, and went back for a great lunch at one of the stops. I would recommend it.

Loved it! We got to meet several store owners who have their own unique brand of salesmanship. Found the best places for pizza, pastries, cheesesteaks, meat, cheese, tortilla chips ... you name it. Our knowledgeable tour guide helped quite a bit.

We took our tour in the pouring rain on 8/ 28 and had a great time. Our tour guide Allison ( I hope that is right) was wonderful!

9th Street tour was extremely fun. As we walked down 9th Street, Alex gave us the history of the Italian market, how the shops began and evolved into what they offer today. Several of the shops owners and staff gave us demonstrations and samples...continued
