We did this tour last week and it was great. Conner H was our guide and he was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and engaging. Hid=s passion for history was obvious and it brought the tour to life for us. Be aware that on this tour, you won't be going inside the historical sites, but it does give you a great overview...

This tour covers so much ground in such a short time and is a perfect introduction for a visit to the historical centre of Philadelphia. Much of its success for us lay in Jason, the excellent guide we had for the experience. He has a very easy manner and style and made his commentaries a delight to listen to. He... More

This tour was full of interesting information about my own city, much of which I was completely unaware. Debbie, our delightfully smart, charming, humble, vivacious energetic guide obviously loves doing the tour and sharing information. I encourage you to ask questions, because you get even more nuance plumbed from her ongoing research. Worth every step and every penny. Thank you,... More

We did the audio self guided tour. We had an 8 hour stop over at Phily airport so we decided to take the train into town and kill some time. The tour was well laid out and organised. Great direction and the included map was helpful. Most of the audio information given was word for word available on the storyboards... More

I'm from Philadelphia and was hosting guests from out of town. This was the perfect way to to introduce them to the city, and even as a native, I enjoyed it as well. Thanks for a great tour sprinkled with tons of fun facts, Debbie!

started out by introducing where we were from, our guide, Debbie, although not a true native to Philadelphia, is a true student of history. She did an excellent job considering the noise from a local festival, learned some historical tid bits you would only get from extensive reading, she hit on some really keen points. enjoyed the walk which was...
