With a seedier R-Rated mature audience's aspect, Grim Philly reveals the less told, often bloody; sometimes embarrassing (grim) histories of our city through meticulously researched tours conducted by professors, authors, and young professionals. Ghost and vampire lore are explored, and language used by our guides is more than often not suitable for children or the prudish. A wide variety of topics include ghost hunting, serial killers, and gangsters to magick, Voodoo and brothels; riots, local pirates, and the Jersey Devil. Tours are offered by foot, tavern, and boat. Voted Best Philly tours and featured on Travel Chanel- we are open year round though offerings, hours, and departure change seasonally.

Very Informative Tour. Brittany very well versed in Philly History . Very energetic and definitely into it. Tours in other cities often had guides in period clothing and a little more "spooky", but overall fun and entertaining.

We thought this would be more of a ghost tour, as that's what the literature said. It turned out to be more of a history tour, which was fine, but not quite what we expected. It was a good walk and a good length. If you are expecting a ghost tour, look at other options.

Didn't exactly know what to expect with the Grim Philly "Cemetery, Serial Killers, Blood & Beer Tour," but definitely enjoyed it. Our guide, Ted, really individualized the tour for us and pretty much catered to our every need -- finding a place to slip into when we wanted something to drink or needed to use the restrooms.
