We met Deborah at the stone benches and we left promptly at 10:00. We made many stops along the way where she told us history facts that I had never heard before. She made many good suggestions about places we could come back and visit after the tour. I would definite recommend this tour.

I bought the walking tour MP3. The instructions were complex, and I was unable to download to my cell phone. A total waste of money. I tried to call to get assistance- at 11 AM in the morning there was nobody to take the call, only a message. Do not waste your money on this scam

This was really great for both people who know Philadelphia well and visitors - lots of fun facts and history to learn. It was good to see lots of sites that we could tour later in greater detail. I recommend for early in a visit to Philly to get an overview of the different things you can go see.

Jason provided a terrific, well-paced tour of the main historic sites in downtown Philly. He clearly knows his subject - he gave an overview at each site as well as interesting, little-known facts. Very knowledgeable and friendly! I strongly recommend this tour!

An easy walking tour giving you some background on the main historical sites near the Liberty Bell. A good pace that allows enough time for commentary - the total distance is just over a mile. The guide was knowledgeable and kept the group together despite the protest march that caused a slight delay. Worth doing.

This walking tour is a great way to start your exploration of historic Philly. Covers a LOT of ground in about 1-1/2 hours. Knowledgeable and engaging tour guide on our trip. Well done.

This was a fantastic tour of historic Philadelphia for our 7th grade students. Jason was our tour guide and he tailored our tour to make it engaging and relate-able for the age group. He was an incredible story teller and had our kids hanging on his every word. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about and... More

We did this tour last week and it was great. Conner H was our guide and he was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and engaging. Hid=s passion for history was obvious and it brought the tour to life for us. Be aware that on this tour, you won't be going inside the historical sites, but it does give you a great overview...

This tour covers so much ground in such a short time and is a perfect introduction for a visit to the historical centre of Philadelphia. Much of its success for us lay in Jason, the excellent guide we had for the experience. He has a very easy manner and style and made his commentaries a delight to listen to. He... More

This tour was full of interesting information about my own city, much of which I was completely unaware. Debbie, our delightfully smart, charming, humble, vivacious energetic guide obviously loves doing the tour and sharing information. I encourage you to ask questions, because you get even more nuance plumbed from her ongoing research. Worth every step and every penny. Thank you,... More
