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...

I did a History HD with Trevor and it was great since I just arrive to Philly and I could have an idea of what to do and visit for the next few days plus I was able to know some very local details about the local history which was very interesting for me specially coming from a very different...

Let me begin by saying thank you Nina for a wonderful tour. Being avid travelers, this was one of the best tours we have ever taken. This was definitely an Italian Market Immersion. It was an extremely cold day and we arrived at our meeting place a little early, so we went into the Starbucks across the street. Nina knew... More

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
