My husband and I went on the vampires, sex and ghosts tour. It was a very large crowd and we had two leaders. One was a teacher and was,very knowledgeable and gave a good presentation. The other had interesting facts but had terrible delivery and presentation. Glad we did this on a groupon and didn't pay full price. Will probably... More

Boy. Rereading all of the positive reviews for Grim Philly as I reflected on my experience this weekend just bummed me out more. Some background. I really, really like tours. Just as a blanket statement, it doesn't matter the type. As long as I'm informed of new stories and facts, you'll have me on board. But because of that I... More

Kyle- I am so sorry, and want to bring you and anyone else on our 7/16 tour back out with one of our main guides who we have ordinarily doing our Vampire, Sex, Ghost tour any time you may be back in town and willing to give us another shot. Our substitute guides for 7/16, as you'd mentioned--a Girard College... More

We went on the 2pm Grim Philly Cemetery, Serial Killers, Blood and Beer tour Saturday. This was a fun and interesting walk around Old City Philly on the north side of Independence Hall. Our tour guide John led us thru old cemeteries, Elfrerth's Alley, Betsy Ross house and Christ Church. He dazzled us with stories about Ben Franklin, the good... More

Definitely an experience full of laughter and we learned a lot about our Philadelphia too! We took a late night boat tour through the Harbor which was focused on Pirates and the Jersey Devil - I was blown away by the enthusiasm of our tour guide and the staff. Many jokes were thrown about to lighten the entertainment with light... More

A friend from Scotland and I are both big early American History buffs. We took the Serial Killers tour, first. It was informative, "R" rated and fun. The fact that this tour is conducted by history professors and students going for their advanced degrees shows--lots of detailed, ACCURATE information that 's neither dry nor boring. Instead, the Serial Killers Tour... More

We took the 'Vampires, Sex, Ghosts' tour. Our interest in things paranormal is what made this catch our eye. The walk was a ton of fun, stories made our eyes widen and sometimes made my jaw drop. I thought it was a little light on actual ghost stories, but there was plenty to be told as far as the grim... More

This was a great time. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we would definitely do this again. I'm also going to recommend it to others. A+++

Britnee gave a great tour - the information on the seedy side of Old City in the colonial and early federal era was good, and her delivery and pacing was good. As the script goes, the vampires tie-in is tenuous, and the ghost stories were also a bit weak. This is really more about the historic underbelly of the town... More

I've been to the bootleggers ball and the vampire, sex and ghost tour. I loved them so much I bought the serial killer tour as well. Averaging 1 tour a month! Great tour guides, knowledge, and lots of humor!

It was a great experience. We would absolutely recommend this to any adult couples or friends. The guide was a great orator, had interesting and fun stories to share. Historical and interesting alternative focus because it was the "Cemetery, Serial Killers & Beer" tour.
