This company made some very special memories for me and my fiancé. Our tour guide, Jason, helped me orchestrate an extremely romantic and thoughtful engagement that included a marriage proposal in front of the Philadelphia LOVE statue. He also went the extra mile to have a fellow co-worker, Michelle, hang out in the park and take surprise photos of the... More

Due to the extreme cold, I was the only person who showed up for my afternoon tour so I got a personal and up close tour of the Old City with Marianne who immediately tailored the tour to what I wanted to see. We spent about 3 and a half hours together and her enthusiasm and knowledge of the history... More

Our group arrived early at the meeting point on one of the coldest nights in Philly this winter. We were freezing and I was thinking, "A walking tour, what did we get ourselves into?" Fortunately, our guide Alex showed up promptly and we soon forgot about the cold. What a fun way to spend a Saturday night in the city.... More

I took the History in HD tour with Kendra and the Markets, Mosaics and Magic tour with Jason - both tours and guides were outstanding. Urban Adventures has to be one of the best ways to experience a new city. The staff have clearly done their homework when it comes to the history, and you get an authentic local experience... More

We took the Italian Market tour with Chuck and it was fabulous. We got a tour from a guy who lives in the neighborhood. Chuck was able to weave lots of American history into the tour as well as more recent stories. I was just my husband and I on the tour and Chuck was flexible to tailor the tour... More

My husband and I just went on the Philly on Tap tour. It being a Tuesday night, we were the only 2 people, so it was definitely personalized! Our guide, Jason, was very knowledgeable and passionate about the topic... Beer in Philadelphia! He took us to out-of-the-way pubs that neither of us knew of, even though we are very familiar...

Chuck was our tour guide on Saturday evening and he was lively, knowledgeable, and a fun guy to have a beer with. The tour takes place from 5-7 pm and it's a great... More
