Recently my family and I decided to take a trip to Philadelphia. The Bow Tie walking tour was my family’s favorite event by far while we were in town. The tour guide was very nice and showed a great amount of flexibility by allowing me to sign my family up for the tour very last minute. The guide was very knowledgeable of the city’s history, and I loved his interaction with the tour group. I definitely would recommend this tour stop to anyone visiting the Philadelphia area!!!!
