Dark Philly Adult Night Tour

333 reviews
Leave the kids at home, because this night tour of Philly is strictly R-rated. Be led along the darker streets of the city, hearing stories of hauntings, executions, vampires, and other chilling tales. See the city's beautiful historic buildings lit up at night, and find out facts about them that you won't hear on standard daytime tours.

When visiting Philadelphia, make sure that you schedule to visit the City Hall both inside (ticket through the Visitor Center) or just walk around the beautify building and take photos from different angle. I got to the Visitor Center just right before the door was closed so I spent time walking around admiring the statues and the building including the main plaza with a cafe and water fountain. This is not to be missed when in Philly, then a few blocks walking to enjoy the Reading historic in door market.

We had a very limited time in Philadelphia so when we found out we can go up in the tower of the City Hall and get some great views of the city we decided to do it as it wouldn't take long and we'd get a feel of Philly. Got our tickets at the visitor centre and the staff were really nice and helpful. They do time slotted tickets so you can pick your time. We were lucky that it wasn't busy so we got tickets quite soon but that's not always the case. So it kught be worth going early. I think tickets were about 12 dollars so not too bad. The elevator in the tower is quite old and small so only 4 people can go up at one time. If you can't deal with small spaces the this might not be for you. It's also an open elevator so you see everything. The person manning the elevator talks a bit about the history of it and the hall so there's a bit of info to go with the views. One up there you've got 15 minutes. So make the most of it. The views are pretty good so make sure you have battery for the camera. I'd say it was worth it and would recommend.

This is a huge building with an interesting history. We started our tour in the gift shop which has fun items and historic photos. The tour covers a lot of info and space - you could get lost. Our guide did a good job of giving us info and sharing anecdotes. It is really the center of the city - you can walk right through it on the ground level - fascinating. Don;t miss it.

Gorgeous building that let's you walk right through the middle to the courtyard. The architecture is stunning and worth a look.
