About the tour

As the nation's first capital, Philadelphia has a lot to talk about! Join Hriday on a tour of historic center city where we will walk by City Hall, Love Park discussing the city's origins and its story. A fun side story about how the city fell upon a curse is also included for those who are into that! Along with this we will look at the repurposed old train terminal which is now home to one of the nation's oldest and most robust markets. We do recommend having a snack handy as you go on this historically significant and mouth wateringly tantalizing journey in the first city!

Meet Hriday Sharma

Hriday Sharma

A software engineer by qualification, Hriday's real interests weren't fully satisfied by his desk job. After moving to Philadelphia in 2015, he began taking an interest in theatre and began moonlighting as a stand up comedian. This hobby of his marries perfectly into his passion for food, travel and stories. He has grown up living in 7 different countries and visited an additional 19 more through his travels. Now since being in Philadelphia and adopting it as his new home, he is excited to tell you all about the history, its thriving food scene, its beautiful parks and much more in the City of Brotherly love through his own unique lens. As they'd say in Philly "you don't wanna miss this jawn"

This is not a criticism of the Guide. He is good. I have enjoyed a couple of visits to Reading Market but it is too congested for a virtual tour.

This was my 2nd time doing this particular tour with Hriday and it was even better than the first time. It was great to see the LOVE statue that was temporarily in front of City Hall when I was there, moved back to LOVE SQUARE. Hriday took his time to allow us to stroll through the market and see the delicious food that I so miss!! Vibrant city life tour worth seeing!!

Hriday was a great guide. Loved hearing the stories aout William Penn!!! Although I live just outside Philadelphia I never heard the curse before. He was very informative and friendly. I hope he does more tours.

Outstanding tour with Hriday. I haven't been to Philly since the pandemic started. Great to be able to see my favorite spots from afar and Hriday did an outstanding job to provide a full experience of the market and the surrounding areas mixed with fun facts. Really Enjoyable.
