We went on the History in HD walking tour and it was great! It was really informative and I feel like I got to see every major historical sight in Philly in one walking tour. Our tour guide Josh S was great and very knowledgeable about the area and the history.

Had Chuck show us around on our beer tour. Lived here my whole life but there's always more to learn I've found out. Chuck was full of knowledge and really funny, too. Can't wait to check out some more adventures.

We learned so much about Philly from her. She really seemed to be passionate about her job and the information she was given us. After... More

We had Josh S as our guide, super friendly and energetic. Only 4 people on the tour so he really personalized the experience. This is a great thing to do at the beginning of your trip, gives you a good idea where you might like to go back and explore in more depth.

Josh is full on the entire tour. He engages each guest by name and interests, while hitting the cobblestone streets and sharing his obvious passion for history. He was the perfect remedy for our 14 year old son who was not interested in joining us for a guided tour of anything. We definitely hit places we would not have found... More

Nina was an outstanding guide. We went on the Philadelphia in HD tour. We are from the area, yet we learned so many things. Nina knows so many tidbits about Philadelphia, as well as the history! We were even able to tour someone's personal outstanding apartment. Nina is so very knowledgeable and keeps everyone engaged and is able to answer... More

The Philly on Tap tour with Kenny was an excellent way to explore the city, learn some history, sample some local brews, and check out some interesting and unique bars in the heart of the city! I was the only person scheduled for my tour on a rainy Tuesday evening, and I thought it might be awkward to be the... More

It was a windy and cold day but we had an excellent and informative time, because our guide Josh Silver kept us so engrossed. Josh has a great head for facts and figures and we delighted in the many historical fine points he offered along the way. He allowed us to linger for quite a while at Christ Church, which... More

Not at all what I had expected..so much more! Our tour guide for the happy hour pub crawl tour was wonderful! Kenny made a point to tell us about the history of Philadelphia and the beer as well as all the historic sites on the way to the custom chosen bars he planned for us based on our interests. He...
