With a seedier R-Rated mature audience's aspect, Grim Philly reveals the less told, often bloody; sometimes embarrassing (grim) histories of our city through meticulously researched tours conducted by professors, authors, and young professionals. Ghost and vampire lore are explored, and language used by our guides is more than often not suitable for children or the prudish. A wide variety of topics include ghost hunting, serial killers, and gangsters to magick, Voodoo and brothels; riots, local pirates, and the Jersey Devil. Tours are offered by foot, tavern, and boat. Voted Best Philly tours and featured on Travel Chanel- we are open year round though offerings, hours, and departure change seasonally.

I'm not even going to write an in-depth review. I'm just going to say that I've been on 4 Grim Philly tours, and they've all been amazing. If you're on the fence, just do it - you won't regret it!

Our tour guide MADE this tour for us! He was informative, engaging, and just plain fun! Definitely do another tour if we are guaranteed this guide; can't remember his name, but it was the Grim Philly Pub Crawl Nov 4 at 5pm!
