We have lived in Philly for over a year, and this tour was a fantastic way to learn about the city what only locals really know. Our tour guide Jen who has grown up in the area and loves the city was knowledgeable and energetic. She not only provided thorough review of the city history, architecture, neighborhoods and eating establishments,... More

Here goes a great recommendation, in my view. We took two Free Walking Tours last weekend in Philadelphia: the 'Real Philly' and 'Independence Mall', both with Jenn, a well prepared and high energy person with a lot of knowledge and strength in her legs - we walked more than 5 hours in a day, and Jenn still had her breath...

This was my first free tour and was by far better than any paid tour I attended. The guide was extremely informative and made the tour fun rather than like a school tour. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.

This is my 3rd free tours by foot experience in the 3rd city. They have all been amazing. The tours are super informative and hit many highlights of the areas. I learned so much by attending this tour and was able to see historical sites I would not have know to go to by myself. I recommend free tours by... More

Really enjoyed the tour and now thanks to Mat have a greater appreciation for Ben Franklin ( lol, seriously had no idea how influential... More

I was slightly skeptical of the "pay what you wish" nature of this tour, but we were looking for something to do on Christmas Day and this was the only tour running. It was fantastic! Our guide, Jen, was super knowledgeable and fun and made this historic tour very interesting. She's a native of Philadelphia and that lent a personal... More

I found this purely by chance when researching what to do over the holiday weekend in Philadelphia and I am so glad I did. I traveled with my husband and another couple who had visited before many times and they were super impressed. We did one tour with Jenn (Independence Mall Tour) and she was fantastic. We learned so much... More

I was in Philly for a weekend and took two tours with this company: Independence Mall and Real Philadelphia. The tours were fantastic, great choice of attractions, nice pace, thorough explanations. I especially enjoyed the Real Philly tour that took us around a bunch of neighborhoods so we saw something beyond the Independence Mall. I think what makes these tours... More
