We have used these tours several times in different cities and they're the best way to see the highlights of each town. The guides are very helpful, fun and professional.

We did the 4.5 hour Real Philly tour with Jenn which was fantastic. Jenn is very knowledgable and humorous. She sets a good pace and was happy to answer questions and make food recommendations at the Italian Market and at Reading Terminal Markets.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour tour through historical Philly. Matthew provided tons of information in a funny, entertaining fashion. He also had some great tips on places to visit in the area. My husband and I highly recommend!

Took my 17 year old niece. Live across the bridge in NJ. Jenn was wonderful and has lots of tour experience, and knowledge with a sense of humor. I learned so much about the history of Chinatown, and some very inexpensive wonderful food choices, at many places. I hope to schedule a private and take some of my teen music... More

Despite the parade and the rain, we had a wonderful experience with Jenn. The two and a half hour tour is all worth the time. We enjoyed the wit and joke, but also the historical information and had a step back in time to the birthday of the US.

Jennifer was outstanding in bringing the history to life with humor and dispelled many myths. The pace was slow enough to get good pictures.

When I looked on Trip Advisor for this tour company I found plenty of great reviews but none for the ghost tour so I thought I would specifically cover that tour. Our Guide was Jen and she was great-very animated and easy to hear and she definitely knows her city! This was definitely tame by ghost tour standards and more... More

This tour was a terrific introduction to Philadelphia. I'd visited the city before but always on business and never made time to walk the historic district. This was the best way to get a layout of the historic district and get snippets of places I'd like to go back to later and visit for longer! Our guide, Jennifer, was a... More

My husband and I enjoyed this great walking tour of some historic spots in Philadelphia. Our guide Matt entertained us with lots of interesting stories about Philadelphia -- both past and more recent history. He was a good-humored, well-spoken live wire with lots of enthusiasm for his subject. He handled all problems with ease and took all questions. We had... More
