It was such a great experience--mixing beer and history! Our tour guide, Rob, was knowledgable and exurbent! We went to three exciting and different pubs, and Rob encouraged us to taste beers he knew we would like based on our preferences! He also gave us great advice on things to do and places to go after the tour.

Couldn't have asked for a better tour through the history of Philadelphia/America. Very educating, adventurous, and fun tour. Request Rob as your tour guide if you're able to. He made the adventure through the city a fun and memorable one.

Our tour guide Josh was so knowledgable, and he really tailored the tour to our interests. Josh told great stories about the history of the city, but we... More

Went on this tour with my 14-year-old son on a sweltering July day, and it was fabulous! Nina was an excellent guide with amazing knowledge of Philadelphia. The Italian Market was my favorite part. Nina knew the shopkeepers who were generous with their time and their samples! Ate the best cheese and olives I've ever tasted! Saw some amazing murals... More
