A group of friends and I enjoyed a walking tour with Rob. He was filled with countless stories and tales of Philadephia's history. Along the walk, Rob answered our many questions and even had suggestions for beer as well as the brewing history behind them! Rob prevailed through the pouring rain and kicked us off to a positively memorable night.... More

A group of friends and I went on a walking tour of Philadelphia with our amazing tour guide, Rob. About 30 minutes before the tour was scheduled to begin, it began raining heavily. We stopped and bought some ponchos and made the best of it. Rob provided us with great historical information of the city and answered all of our... More

I went with a group of friends on the beer walking tour. The weather was less than cooperative, but Rob was very positive and accommodating. Despite the downpour we met some new people and Rob shared some fabulous history of the city with the group. What a great time! You won't be disappointed. Signup for their newsletter to get a...

In a snow storm a small group of us set out on a walking tour of Philly with the intrepid Josh. We had a wonderful time as for us at least (all Australians) the snow was a novelty. Josh knew an enormous amount about what we saw and where we walking and happily shared facts and stories. We ended the... More

Took the tour on a Sunday, with Chuck as our guide. Sunday turned out to be good, as it wasn't ridiculously crowded. Chuck was great and gave us a good general history of the area as well as many fun facts about Philly itself. Loved that Chuck introduced us to some of the shop owners and asked them to tell...

Josh was beyond knowledgeable about the sights and people on our tour. He pointed out historical details at every twist and turn along our walk. He welcomed questions and knew the answers to ALL of them. Josh introduced me to many of the shop owners whose businesses we visited along the tour and made a personal connection with each one....

Jason Fried, our tour guide, leisurely drove us through all the distinctive neighborhoods that give Philly its multi-faceted character and had a casual conversation with us throughout our relaxed and intriguing tour. Jason capped off the tour with a stop at a historic Italian family bakery for one of our favorite treats--cannoli. We fell in love with Philly during our... More
