I enjoyed my Cheesesteak tour with John. There only 3 people in the tour which made it more intimate and easier to ask questions. John did a nice job covering a lots of sites and information in a short amount of time.

We went on the Colonial Cheesesteak tour with Caleb (sorry if the spelling is not correct!) and it was excellent. Caleb was friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and exceptionally patient with my two-year-old daughter who came along with us. I strongly recommend this wonderful tour company.

Excellent tour and guide. Our guide was so knowledgable with the history and landmarks but not at all boring! He took his time and allowed for questions as well as pictures along the way. It was a great introduction to the city!
