Josh was my friend Sue's and my tour guide for the 4 hour heart of South Philly (I think it was called) Tour. We could not have had a more knowledgeable or enthusiastic guide for this very interesting trek!! I was worried about keeping up with the pace. Josh was kind and encouraging and even carried my purchases for a while! He knew everything about the history and made it seem like he was teaching this content for the first time! Great!

We've done the historic walking tour of Philly twice, and were lucky enough to have Chris as our tour guide both times. We just moved to Philly this year and did our first tour to get to know the city. When my parents came to visit, they wanted a tour too, so we booked it a second time. Even though some of the material was the same, we really enjoyed the tour both times. It gives a great overview of the historical significance of Philadelphia, but fun and relevant, and ends at one of our favorite local brew pubs! I'd highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting town, or for anyone just looking to learn a bit more about Philly. We're looking forward to booking another Urban Adventures tour in the future!

We tourned the Italian Market in Philly with Chuck (tour guide). He was friendly and fun. He shared some history, some anecdotes and shared lots of his favorite places! It was so nice to have a native to Philly telling us the best places to shop and eat! He manged the crowds well, spoke to everyone on the tour and seemed truly excited to share his knowledge. The best part was Chuck taking us into various establishments and allowing us to speak to the owners and hear their stories of the Italian Market. We are local (about an hour from Philly), but would recommend this tour to anyone visiting or local to the area. It was a nice way to end our weekend in Philly. :-)

I'd arrived in Philly for my class reunion and was just hanging around town until my friend got off work. My plan was to wander, and wander I did!

It was too bad that I found out about and bought my ticket for the walking tour so late in the day, but lucky me! I got Josh all to myself! We ran around so many historical sites as quickly as we could, beings that many places were about to close. Regardless, we made it to many places, had time to notice the little things that in a large group may have been overlooked, and had a great time!

I lived in NE Philly but never took any tours of this wonderful, historic city. I'm so glad I did.. it was enlightening, inspiring, and what a wonderful afternoon! Next time I'm there, I'll plan on taking a few tours and beginning much earlier in the day.

Oh, and a glass of wine at the end of our walk.. or shall I say our run.. was a great finale! What made it absolutely PERFECT was that it rained as I sat on the bus bench, awaiting the arrival of my friend (who was wondering what the heck happened to me!!)

Thanks, Josh.. see you another day!

I did the Philly on Tap tour for my boyfriends birthday and we had a great time! Our tour guide, Chuck, was great--extremely knowledgable about the city and about the bars we went to. I would definitely recommend this tour and I hope to try out some of the other tours in the future.
