Our tour guide Marianne was the best guide I have had on a tour. She really knew the Old City well and had a great sense of humor. This was more then just a history of the 1800's. She included everything up to modern day events in the area. We walked, talked and had a great time learning about the... More

The tour is great. Although the weather didn't accompany us, Joseph - our guide- was super kind, knowledgeable and guided us all through philly's history and American history as well. He was open to questions all the time, spoke in a clear voice and most important of all, never lied, when he wasn't sure about something he would just simply... More

I had a great experience with Joseph as our tour guide. I only had a few hours to spare and wanted to get the most of my time here and I'm glad I went with this tour. Joseph went over a lot of fun anecdotes and gave interesting tidbits. He was able to answer our groups random questions thoroughly. You... More

See almost everything you might see on a more expensive tour. The guide even gave us some facts you would never get on a higher priced tour.

We booked the Independence Mall tour during our stay in Philly. Highly recommended to learn about the story of the city and of the United States. Our guide Marianne was excellent and very well prepared. I am not English mother tongue but I understood her very well. Free tours by foot very professional and well organised.

Had a wonderful 4 1/2 guided tour of Philly with Joe. His deep knowledge of Philadelphia history gave my wife and I a fantastic orientation to Philadelphia's history and neighborhoods. Put on your walking shoes!

I just took the latest tour and loved it. Jen and Joe are amazing! I enjoyed learning about the hidden story behind the Logan Square area. There was so much interesting content about the square, the natural history museum, saints peter and paul, and the history of philadelphia. I totally recommend these tours to all my friends!
