We were in Philadelphia for 3 days and booked this tour. It was a good overview of many of the sights and while we did not enter any of the buildings, it was sufficient to talk about them and visit later if you wanted more. Our tour guide Matthew was informative and funny and shared a lot of information. We... More

I have done Free Tours by foot before, a few actually and usually have a great experience. We did Real Philly tour with Nick a recent weekend and it was just not that good. He did not project his voice much and seemed like most of the time was just reading or telling us to read the signs as we... More

Took this tour on Memorial Day weekend, and it was excellent. Our guide was Marianne, and she did a great job mixing in a lot of facts, fiction and fun for the adults and kids on Philly's role in America's independence. Highly recommended.

I hugely enjoyed the Philly tour! I was only there for a day and really feel like I got to know a good bit of fascinating historical events as well as fun side facts. Our tour guide Jen was very friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. She showed genuine interest in her guests' thoughts and wishes, it felt like she tailored her... More

She took us on a tour to Independece Mall with lots of information about the history of America and Philly, showed us different places and was fun to be around. She really cared for the group and was very enthusiatic about the... More

Matthew was our tour guide, and there were only four of us, likely due to weather. He was quite informative, and very entertaining and hilarious. Matthew is incredibly skilled at walking backwards. He tells timely and appropriate jokes that fit in to the nature of the tour and the type of guy he is. Great tour, and just as good... More

Jen was very knowledgable and took you (almost) everywhere you would want to go in Philly! She kept it fun and engaging and made sure to connect with all those on the tour. And while it was great to see so much of Philly, I think 4.5 (our tour went more like 5...) hours was just a bit too long.... More
