I went on the Chew Philly Tour in Chestnut Hill with a group of great friends. The cheese shop was amazing and the Night Kitchen's brownie was the best I have ever tasted. I had my newborn with me and the tour guide and shop owners were all understanding when I had to duck outside to feed or soothe my... More

Ben was our guide for yesterday's 2 hour tour. He did an awesome and was very patient along with his colleague Owen during the Segway orientation session. I travel quite a bit and even I was introduced to some new areas of the city that have popped up since I last visited. Getting around the city on the Segway is... More

We met with our guide, Rob around 5pm. We had a wonderful tour of historic Philadelphia, that include three Philadelphia bars. Rob was not only knowledgeable about the history (he is a city tour guide as well!), but he also could tell us a lot about beer in Philadelphia and how it was unique. We got into a long discussion...

My husband and I did a walking tour with Josh. The other people didn't show up, so we had a private tour. It was like walking around with a friend that knew "everything". We had such a good time. Josh told us more about our County's history than I ever remember learning in school. It made me proud to be... More

This was an interesting "off the beaten track" type of tour for us. We wanted a deeper knowledge of Philly and this hit the spot for us. The tour takes you to the Italian market at the south Philly area. We went into different shops selling cheese, olive oils, pork and kitchen equipment. The history behind the area was very... More

While our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable, I felt this walking tour was somehow lacking. I would have liked us to stay more on the beaten path in the footsteps of the founding fathers, hearing more behind the scenes and interesting stories about them instead of stuff about modern Philadelphia. It also would have been nice had we... More

PHLUA, Manager at Philadelphia Urban Adventures, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your feedback, it's much appreciated. We were disappointed to read that you didn't enjoy the tour. The "Founding Fathers" label is that of one of our ticket distributors, and we will look at the site's description again to make sure that it accurately represents the tour and to make sure that expectations of our travelers...

I've visited Philadelphia in June for 3 days and I decided to make the most of my time. Definitely the tour with Urban Adventures helped me. I chose the "History in HD" tour in the afternoon and I spent more than two hours walking around the historic part of the city with a fantastic guide called Rob who explained to... More

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...
