We had such a great time on our tour with VIv. He was very knowledge about the history of the city and events that occurred at each stop along the tour route. It was definitely not a canned presentation which I really appreciated. He was enthusiastic and friendly. The tour had a nice flow to it and was not to fast paced. I would highly recommend this tour if you like history, dark details about the past, and seeing the city at night!

It was very informative but felt very rushed. There was no time to see what had been described. There were also too many other tours at the same time and same places. Too many people in our group the night we went as it was sold out since we are in COVID social distance stage still. The absolute worst was arriving at Independence Hall right at 9 pm as the bell was starting to go off. Our presenter didn’t stop talking about the ghostly things that happened there but we didn’t hear a word of it because of the bell.

This was the first thing we did upon arriving in Philly for a few days. We got a little turned around and almost joined another tour but we found where we needed to be. Julianne was our guide and was fabulous. She waited for us and was polite, engaging, and informative. Our group was small which made for a much more enjoyable tour. Saw lots of cool sites and loved hearing more about the history. Julianne knew the stories yet encouraged our active participation. By the end of the tour we felt like we were friends. Well worth the time and money! My only suggestion is to make sure you eat before the tour! Our 730pm tour ended at 9pm and food options were limited. But that's on us. Thank you, Julianne, for a memorable and fantastic start to our Philly vacation!

We were in town for a book signing and ended up on a tour with only 7 total people all of whom were also in town for the book event. Our guide Viv was fun and easy to interact with, incredibly well informed and knowledgeable. We had a ton of fun and would recommend this tour to everyone.

This was a fun evening in Philly. We have been on many ghost tours in other cities but never this close to home. This tour was more historical, not very ghostly. Lots (5) cemetaries featured. Tour guide had good presence, and delivery, sense of drama. But it leaves you wondering how a city with SO MUCH history doesn't have any really scary ghost stories??

I’ve been on ghost tours in several cities and this was the least “ghostly.” Most stories were about history of Philly that focused on disease and epidemics. We walked by five cemeteries and were only able to look through closed gates. Previous ghost tours I’ve been on are more intriguing because you are in a cemetery examining actual gravestones.

Our guide was pleasant and a good storyteller. He did nothing to build cohesiveness of the group. We simply walked together quickly needing to walk against traffic lights in order to stay with the group. Not sure I would bring children on this tour.

Took our grandkids on the Spirits of 76 Ghost Tour this past summer. It was our 2nd time for the tour and it was as enjoyable as the first. Interesting for kids and adults both. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes.

We had such a great time and Janelle was a delight! She knew her stuff and her delivery was great! She was able to answer any question people had! My kids are young (6 and 9) and they were just as engaged as the adults! Would do again and definitely recommend!!!

We reserved our tour through trip advisor. When we arrived they did not have our reservation but took us anyway once I displayed my mobile ticket. So book through website and not trip advisor. Tour was kid friendly and took you through interesting parts of the city. Our guide was very animated and theatrical throughout. He had an accent that made him difficult to understand. My children said he traversed three dialects - British, Irish, and Pirate.
Decent tour just not great.
