I went this past weekend when it was absolutely bone-chilling cold, and Britnee was the coolest tour guide I have ever had. The tact and eloquence of her witty delivery makes the information easier to grasp and also has a hint of spooking you out(but in the most gentle way possible.) it was also so cold I could not feel my thighs or feet and absolutely could not handle walking like a normal person. It was STILL worth every minute.

I would highly recommend this tour, and now that I am aware of it, I will be coming back in the warmer weather with a friend and I will be limping more tours together for the day and I will end it with this tour!

Funny, educational, and very interesting. We had the misfortune of being stuck in a rain storm for part of it but our tour guide, Britnee, stuck it out with us. She has a great personality and was very engaging!

I definitely recommend these tours as a great way to see part of the city and learn some history but it's not very scary/spooky. I always love ghost tours for the aforementioned reason but the guide makes all the difference. We definitely recommend Britnee!

Wonderful tour, especially if you like learning about the parts of history left out of the textbooks. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and clearly loved the subject he was talking about. I would definitely recommend this tour to adults who are looking for an interesting and entertaining evening activity in Philly!

This was a really good tour of some of the historical sites and lesser known stories of American history in downtown Philadelphia. Our tour guide, “Madame Toni”, told assorted stories of adult life and ghost sightings of the nearby locations. As a tour guide, she was very good-humored and approached the subject matter with a balance of audience comfort and winks.

The tour involved more ghost stories than murders / affairs, but it was still an interesting and enjoyable 2 hours.

I would recommend this tour for groups of friends (might be weird to hear about brothels while hanging out with your mom…) who are interested in hearing something different about major historical sites. Be prepared to be on your feet for a bit, and use the restroom beforehand.

Toni was an absolutely incredible guide. So great with storytelling to where it felt like I was there with her and she made everybody laugh the whole time. Toni truly made it a wonderful experience and I could not say enough good things about her. My girlfriend said she wishes Toni was her grandmother! I will absolutely recommend this to any and all friends and family. Thank you so much!!!!!

Our tour guide Toni was a lovely, funny, raunchy leader for our group! The tour was well paced and the information she gave was stuff you couldn't find in the museums. She knew how to work the crowd and brought additional materials that really added to the experience!! I would definitely come again. The tour is short in walking distance so its an easy walk.

Sara rocked. Entertaining, funny, and educational.

She represented the history of Philadelphia well. I learned lots about the city where I was born.

Her personal stories captured the attention of the entire group no matter the demographic or age.

Two thumbs up for Sara from The Ohio State University. .

Great tour experience from Sarah! We were in Philly for one day and wanted to experience everything we could with our limited time. Sarah was able to provide us with ample, detailed, and entertaining stories that kept over group pushing through the chilly night. We had so much fun with her and would highly recommend to book a tour with her personally. Loved it!

A very entertaining and informative tour! I really enjoyed it. I was initially signed up for the New Year Eve early tour so I could also have a late dinner celebration, but as I was the only signup for the 6PM slot, I was asked to reschedule. The Saturday tour had quite a few attendees and we were two groups. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the seedy side of old Philadelphia and entertained the group with facts and tales of brothels and spirits. I would definitely recommend this for any adult who wants to spice up an otherwise full evening. It would be perfect for visitors to our fair city. Keep in mind that it is a walking tour and this time of year it’s cold, but if you’re prepared for that, it’s all good.
