I enjoyed this tour but the name is a little misleading. This isn't the "food tour" many people are used to where you visit four or five food places and eat something between appetizer and small plate size at each one. The person who posted...More

What is the difference between this tour and the tour that I believe is offered by the Reading Terminal market? How long is this tour? I would be bringing three granddaughters ages 14, 13, 11 and wonder if they would find this interesting. Do you have a tour guide that would relate well to this younger group?
