It was freezing cold but we made the trek anyway. Tour was about 50 minutes with plenty of stops. The tour guide was incredible. He was hilarious and informative and just really fun.

I really enjoyed the tours; my husband wants them to be spookier, but it was perfect for me. Heather was a great story teller and we went back the next day to do more exploring in the areas she took us. Thank you!

Historical places and good stories. Not gory. Suitable for kids. We had fun. It was a nice way to see the historic parts of Philly for our brief stay.

B was an amazing tour guide and very knowledgeable about where she was taking us and the history of the locations. The only downside side was that city tavern wasn’t included in the tour but that’s of no fault to B or the tour service.

Our tour guide was so funny and knowledgeable, he kept us entertained the entire time and told us a lot of very interesting, lesser known facts about Philadelphia that you might not hear on other tours. He told ghost stories with sound effects, body movements, and inflection, and it was obvious that he was having as much fun as we were. He also made sure everyone on the tour was safe, helping us watch our step and to not stand too close to the edge of the sidewalk, and made sure everyone was able to keep up when changing locations.
