We really enjoyed this experience as it was interesting, entertaining and fun to walk around to see and hear things you would not see or normally learn about in a normal visit to Philly.

Have you ever seen John Candy tell the bear story in the movie Great Outdoors? Our tour guide Ja'bar had the same story telling style and bravado as John Candy. We cover a lot of historic places and great ghost stories.

The ghost tour was just okay. It was a lot of walking, but I don't feel like we "saw" a lot. We took the 9:30 tour on a Saturday and it lasted about 10 minutes short of two hours! Plan accordingly. I feel like this...More

Our tour guide made this ghost tour great. I think his name was Javar? He added dramatics to his story telling. The period costume adds a nice touch. He added a level of spookiness to the stories that had many in our tour group very...More

The tour guide was nice but not a particularly gifted story teller; the stories could probably use a bit of work in terms of humor or pacing or both. I found my attention lagging as some of the stories took a bit longer than they...More
