I live in Philadelphia and never really did the whole "tourist" thing. I chose the historic tour and loved learning about all the hidden treasures and facts about the city I live in.

Loved everything about my tour (even the rain)! I got to see some classic gems but learned a lot of new things, too. The guides were knowledgeable, and worked well despite me being a beginner>novice runner. I definitely plan on hitting the other tours in the Spring.

We took a personnalized run and loved it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and easy to follow (both physically and intellectually!). She respected our pace and was full of interesting anectodes.

Booked a private 10k tour of Philadelphia and got to see all the famous sights, some hidden gems that aren't so famous, and learnt a ton about the history of this beautiful city from a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. Highly recommended!

Loved everything about the 10K running tour. The guide was knowledgeable and we got to see some of the historical places we might have missed on our own.

My husband and I had an awesome time on the Yards Brewery 5k run. What a great way to start our anniversary weekend. We met some super nice people. My husband does not like to run, but said he'd do another one of these in a heartbeat. Thank you City Running Tours!

I choose to do my first 5k as a running tour and it was a great decision. The tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. I'm from Philly and I learned a lot. It was a great run. I would definitely do it again and recommend it to others.

I did the Philly Half Marathon Practice 10k with City Running Tours and it was great. They were organized and knowledgeable about the city and the route. The guides were attentive and accommodating. A great way to get a run in while visiting Philly.
