Great to meet different shop owners and hear their story. And Mike also told many interesting details and facts. Enjoyed the variety of places seen.

Had a great time. There is a lot of character in that part of Philadelphia that I was not aware of. The only thing that I would have done differently is to go during the week. We went on a Saturday, and the shops were crowded.

Our tour of Philly's 9th Streetn Italian Market was great! It was very informative. Our guide went out of her way to show us every aspect of the market as well as some art history along the way. Highly recommended..

The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The tour was more like a traveling discussion. The shop owners receptive and some took the time to explain their history. This tour is not just for "Rocky" fans.
