The Christmas show at Comcast was modern technology with a great heart. Highly recommend. Stopped at di Bruno's for some cheese and meat... More

We enjoyed a fabulous walking tour by Cheryl Weiss. We loved hearing about the little known stories of the life and times of the people living in the area mixed with a dash of history. The food samples were an added bonus. I will highly recommend this experience to my friends and family. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for... More

I highly recommend this tour. We only had an afternoon to spend in the city so Urban Adventures was a great find. Josh was a terrific guide and got us to all the main sights in the historic district, all the while entertaining us with known and little-known facts about the places, people and events. He answered all the questions... More

I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wishes to get an in depth snapshot of South Philly. Led by Ben, this tour took us to the Italian market, the location of the dueling cheesesteak icons and to the Magic Gardens filled with awesome mosaic art. Most impressive was Ben's knowledge of the area. Born and bred in Philly, he... More

There is so much historical stuff in Philly! I highly recommend taking this tour to capture some of the "inside scoop" and to get a more concise accounting. Very worthy! We really enjoyed our guide Kendra and would recommend her too. We also enjoyed a delicious local beer at the end of the walking tour. Fantastic!

Thank C. M
