We do walking tours - both ghost and historical - every place we travel and have had varying experiences. We only had 24 hours in the city and these tours were both really fun and informative. We did the Ghost tour on a rainy Friday night. It was our guide's second tour, so while some of the logistical things that... More

AN easy walking tour. Our tour leader was knowledgeable and animated. SHe made the spirits come alive. It turned out to be her last Ghost Tour and she made it memorable for us.

This was one of the worst tours I have taken. The guide talked very soft and we had a LARGE group. I heard very little. She would also walk way ahead of the group...at times over a block and would start her talk before everyone arrived at the spot. Most times I never even saw a full view of what... More

I've been on a few tours in life, some of them ghost tours and have had a wonderful time; this one had me uninspired, unintrigued and uninterested. The tour was 2 hours where most tours are 1 and maybe that was the issue. Our guide was rude to passersby, would get distracted by the world around him and took too... More

I decided last minute to do something different for Halloween weekend and what better than a ghost tour! I started an activity with my grandkids last year - we named it Totally Tourist - idea is to see local sites, attend local events and this is one of those type of events - you live local but you really don't...

Went with my mom and two 12-year old siblings the night before Halloween. The tour had the perfect amount of spookiness and mystery mixed with intriguing and fascinating history. Travis was an absolutely fantastic guide - funny, witty, and enthusiastic. While we did not see any apparitions or ghosts, the beautiful neighborhoods of Old Town, the historical halls and sites,...

Summary: Tour began late, tour cut short, main stops missed, guide rushed through the end....... Since we have never toured the city before, we were so excited to take this trip into Philadelphia. I went on the "Tour Map" which was posted on their website and noted that we were going to see The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the... More

Thanks for contacting us about your experience on Saturday night's tour. That is certainly not the experience we strive for. We appreciate customer feedback such as yours to help us improve our tours. Obviously we let you down. Please check your email for a message I had sent you last night. Thanks, Leslie Bari More

We took this tour last nght. Our boys, 11 and 9, loved it! We learned a lot about the old city and enjoyed the legends and tales at each stop. Travis was a fantastic guide!

We took the early evening tour with our guide, Melissa. She was fantastic and made this a great ghost tour with just the right amount of history facts thrown in. We had a group of ten and this was just about the perfect size; everyone could follow along with what she was saying, ask questions, and we had plenty of... More

As history buffs and believers of paranormal, my husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a Ghost Tour. We were delighted to tour historical sites with Travis as he weaved tales of haunts intertwined with historical facts and a touch of the macabe. We enjoyed the tour at a comfortable pace and were fortunate to be the only 2 daring... More
