Italian Market Tour…

“Being born and raised here in South Philly, I thought I knew all about this town. I was wrong. today I learned things I didn’t know about my hometown. My thanks to Chef Jacquie and all the owners of the restaurants and shops we visited on the tour.”

Italian Market Tour

“Get ready for a fun time on Chef Jacquie’s tour of the Italian Market . I have been to the market for years but never had a sense of the history of the market that I do now. Jacquie has a great relationship with all the shop owners we visited and they greeted us very warmly. Jacquie’s tour is very well organized and leisurely with many stops along the way for delicious food tastings. Enjoy the tour and go hungry.”

Learn, See & Feel the Experience

“Chef Jacquie is an absolute dynamo who takes the time to create a very personal experience beyond the many locales and famous destinations. Raised in Europe and a chef herself, Jacquie understands the importance of local foods and how they relate to your travels. She loves the experience of travel and to show what each area has to so uniquely reveal intuitively understanding that you not only want to see and learn on your travels, but to feel.”

A Must Go-On Tour in Philadelphia!

“Chef Jacquie’s tour of the Italian Market in Philadelphia through her enterprise Taste for Travel was “out of this world”! During our excursion through 9th street and beyond – I felt as though I was part of her extended Italian family. We traveled to the best restaurants and shops that the Italian Market has to offer. Her tour of the market provided keen insights about the history of the area and we learned about the authentic Italian foods that we sampled. We met shop owners whose ancestors built their businesses with sweat, determination and amazing culinary talents. For those precious hours we were together during the tour, I truly felt as though I was part of Jacquie’s family and her extended Italian Market family. This is a must go-on tour! My friends and family have already asked about the next tour and I can’t wait to join them again. Way to go Chef Jacquie and kudos to all of the amazing shop owners we visited who welcomed us with open arms and filled us with delicious Italian treats along the way. Ciao!~”

Wonderful Food & Great Deals

“In the 20 plus years I’ve lived in the Philadelphia area, I had never been to the Italian Market until this tour. What an introduction! Jacquie’s passion for food and all that’s Italian made this trip such a fun learning experience. Who doesn’t love finding great bargains while sampling wonderful foods every step of the way? Jacquie has known many of the store owners for years, so they would often share a humorous family story along with a history of the Italian Market. This gave the tour a personal touch. I would highly recommend it and look forward to other tours in the future.”
Shannon Lopez, Newtown Square, PA

South Philadelphia Italian Market Tour

“I recently experienced Jacqueline’s tour of the Italian Market in South Philadelphia. It was awesome! Having been raised in the Italian market neighborhood, Jacqueline brings a perspective to her tours that is truly unique. She has knowledge and relationships with the owners of many of the stores we visited, giving us a very personal experience. Combined with the fact that she is a chef, we were able to gain insight into the best places to purchase food items. I highly recommend this tour!!”
Karen Batchelder, Philadelphia, PA

Amazing Private Italy Vacation & Tour

“We took an amazing trip with Chef Jacquie Kelly as our tour guide. She was delightful, knowledgeable and flexible. Jacquie is fluent in Italian which was invaluable during the trip. Throughout Italy she was able to find special tucked away gems that only the “locals” would know about. Her background as a chef and quest for top notch restaurants was greatly appreciated by every member of the 15 person group! Jacquie had the perfect blend of “seeing everything” and still allowing time to relax and take in the spectacular views. I would highly recommend traveling with Jacquie Kelly. She pays attention to details and as the leader of the group, advocates for the group to make sure that every detail is satisfactory. You will come home with a few words of Italian, a full stomach and tons of great memories.”
Theresa Regillo, Bryn Mawr, PA

Dream Vacation

“There is no doubt that Chef Jacquie can plan and prepare a wonderful travel and dining experiences. Trust me I have a hands on experience traveling with her. Matter of fact I try not to miss any getaway opportunity that I have with her. Wherever the destination might be, she spends many hours searching out the best dining experiences that city has to offer. May it be through personal connections or reading reviews as far as communicating with the Chef of the establishment. She leaves no stone unturned regarding a client’s personal wants and needs. Chef Jacquie has a natural talent for turning a travel experience into a dream vacation.”
Amanda Smith, Newport, KY

I can’t get enough

“Traveling with Chef Jacquie is like a dream come true!  Her ingenuity to capture your every wish is proudly displayed through every detail.  You are treated like royalty the moment you arrive.  No leaf is left unturned.  A definite 5 star travel experience!”
Josephine Rivera, Philadelphia, PA

New York City Experience

“Having traveled to New York City with only a few days to cram as much as possible in, is exactly what Jacquie managed to achieve and fulfill my requests. Being more than an out of towner, as I was holidaying from Australia. In just a few days, we managed all of the key sites. Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park, Tea at the Plaza, 5th Ave, Skating at Rockerfellar Centre, (as it was during Winter), Radio City, The Metropolitan Museum, The Empire State plus more. Yet, we managed to fit in enough down time to relax and sample some of the culinary delights The Big Apple has to offer. Jacquie has a great eye for attention to detail. I was certainly in good hands. Will be looking forward to my next trip, so I can share another great experience with her. Makes a holiday all worth it, as that is what holidays are all about.”
Hilma Mangifesta, Queensland, Australia
