I just have to say something wonderful about Matt at Free Tours by Foot In Philadelphia. He was so friendly and well informed. We had several German young people on our tour, one lady from India, my husband and I and one lady who actually lives in Philadelphia. This may sound like a tough audience, but Matt did a great...

Did the tour by foot with Bevan. He did a fabulous job the surrounding area sights and landmarks. He had a wonderful easy going personality and answered any questions we had. Loved his witty & funny side too! The tour was perfect for me because I didn't want to spend hours touring inside museums, etc. Plus it gave time to... More

I took the Independence Mall Tour and it was wonderful! Great way to get acquainted with the historic area of Philadelphia and learn a lot. It is a 2.5 hour tour through the streets so wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the stroll back in time.

I joined two of the tours offered by Free Tours on Foot - The Independence Mall Tour and the Real Philadelphia Tour. Firstly the tours - The Independence Mall Tour was 2.5 hours long and provided a solid introduction to the history of America's Independence and the people that helped shaped the nation in its early days. It's only short... More

As in other posts, your tour guide makes or breaks your activity. Jenn does a great job and she is very entertaining. Tour booking was very easy and they sent us a follow-up email with more information about the start of the tour. Might as well start really, Jenn is going to get you to smile and interact with the...

I picked the Chinatown food tour on a whim, not knowing anything about Philly's Chinatown. Jenn floored me with her extensive knowledge of the district. I was mesmerized as she detailed its history and how it shaped Philadelphia. I went from having no knowledge of that part of Philadelphia to wanting to visit ASAP! BUT I know what you really...

This was probably the best tour I've ever taken ever, and I've been on more than 15 tours. Matthew is a hilarious person and I was sad the tour lasted only 2 hours. Seriously, he should probably be conducting masterclasses for tour guides or something. If I remember correctly, he does this tour only on Mondays though. Enjoy the tour!

Jenn was awesome, obviously passionate about history and takes a lot of pride in her city. I learned a lot about the founding of our country and the role Philadelphia played. Loved it. Would highly recommend this tour.

Was lucky to have Jenn for the 2-2.30 hours tour and it was absolutely great! Have participated in these free walking tours in Chicago ad in Washington DC and Jenn was really top quality! Super knowledabgle, fun, just great :)
