    The tour was so well organized and our tour guide even offered to text us with other ideas if we ran out of things to do. I highly recommend!

    Enjoyed the tour and the ability to get off and on, but would have liked to have known earlier that we could board any colored Big Bus until I had to change buses. I was under the impression we needed a red bus.

    Kyle was knowledgeable and passionate about Philadelphia history. His dramatic depictions really help connect the scenes as we progress through the historic sites. Took extra time to draw in my teenage kids by having them pretend to be characters in the story. A truly memorable experience.

    I had SUCH an amazing time going on this tour with Ted, he was kind, funny and did an AMAZING job with joking and interacting with the people on the tour. I am soooo grateful for Joe too, his quick communication was incredibly professional and it was overall an amazing experience!! (Also my first ghost tour… and I’ve lived in Philly for 6 years)

    A fantastic and fun walk thru old town Philadelphia. Our guide, Seamus, was knowledgeable, articulate, and a fun guy. In addition to pointing out, for example, Independence Hall, we got a walking tour of the oldest continually-occupied street in the U.S., Christ Church, and much more. Highly recommended.

    Took my teenage son - we both had a great time (and moms know how difficult it is to find a mutually enjoyable activity)!

    Riding the segways is fun and very easy once you get a few minutes of practice. Sarge is very passionate about the city and fun to listen to.

    My girls and I loved this! We went on this tour one day during my bachelorette celebration and it was such a great way to see the sites around Philadelphia, laugh a lot, and of course drink. I highly recommend it!

    We had a great time on our tour. Our tour guide Owen was awesome. Not only did he provide history about the food places we went to, but also other relevant points on the tour.

    It was a great experience, Dale the guide, it was amazing!! We went in beautiful sunny day. We were only 5 people, so the tour was good. We could visit a lot of amish people and know a little bit about their culture. i recomend this tour 100%

    Chuck was great! He was clear, informative and interesting. Food was overall tasty but could’ve probably had one more savory selection somewhere. Overall, fun tour!

    It was a surprise that we could hop on to a different bus than the red one! Didn’t realize they are affiliated . All fine except at end when we waited over half hour on the return fr 430-505. Afraid we wouldn’t be able to get back cuz they said close at 5 pm! Had to call to find out that they were still picking up! Tour guides informative but some should talk slower .

    Elizabeth was brilliant as a ghost tour guide. Very insightful and enthusiastic about the various ghost tales of Philadelphia.

    We had a lot of fun and would recommend this for everyone and anyone.

    The meeting point at City tavern isn't so well lit. Maybe change the meeting point to Independence Hall and walk down instead?
