About Grim Philly Twilight Tours
With a seedier R-Rated mature audience's aspect, Grim Philly reveals the less told, often bloody; sometimes embarrassing (grim) histories of our city through meticulously researched tours conducted by professors, authors, and young professionals. Ghost and vampire lore are explored, and language used by our guides is more than often not suitable for children or the prudish. A wide variety of topics include ghost hunting, serial killers, and gangsters to magick, Voodoo and brothels; riots, local pirates, and the Jersey Devil. Tours are offered by foot, tavern, and boat. Voted Best Philly tours and featured on Travel Chanel- we are open year round though offerings, hours, and departure change seasonally.

Adam was amazing, best tour guide I’ve ever had. I had a 100% great time. Learning all the knowledge about yellow fever, the “vampire” origins, and learning about the first “white house”. Plus learning how James Madison passed, was also a interesting thing.

I went on Saturday night's tour and it was amazing. It's so great to have a tour done by an Ivy League graduate and a professor. There was so much information and Joe kept it funny the entire time. I've been on a lot of Grim Philly tours. This was my favorite.
