What a delightful way to make our way through the very authentic Italian market! Jacquie is so well-versed not only about the food but also recounted a fascinating history of immigration and culture. Food choices were delicious. Jacquie knows everyone intimately in the market and really brought a sense of community to the tour. On top of all that, she is funny and truly personable. Highly, highly recommend.

After a cancelled trip my boyfriend and I were left trying to stay busy in our own city. I am so thankful I found Jacquie! We had a great time touring in our own backyard. Couldn’t have asked for a more knowledgeable and down to earth guide. It was clear that she loves what she is doing and Philly is lucky to have her! Would love to do another tour with her. Also important to note that her covid precautions left no germ behind. We had everything we needed to stay safe while enjoying samples and lunch.

This was an excellent tour. The guide is so knowledgeable about the history of the area, she really kept our interest. Loved hearing about the different shops. Tasting the different balsamic vinegar and olive oils and asking for her advise as a chef was truly the highlight. The Sicilian pizza was amazing. Take the time to go on this tour. You won't be disappointed. It was the highlight of our trip. When we come back we will plan to use this amazing guide again to explore another area of Philly.

Jackie the owner and our tour guide is gorgeous inside and out. A wealth of history of the Italian Market area. Tour gives you a taste of pizza, olive oil, chips and salsa, cheese, coffee, and a cannoli. We go to meet her new guide Michael who was also a joy to be with yesterday. Highly recommend this tour!!
