“Amazing and cheap tour through Philadelphia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

We had the most amazing time on the tour. We got to see all the sights of historical Philadelphia and learned a lot about the history of the US. Additionally we got to hear a lot of funny and insight stories about the founding fathers and the city itself. Jen, our tour guide was just awesome. She was kind, helpful, interested and most importantly very knowledgable. She gave us directions after the tour was done and we ended up chatting for quite a while before we took off. We found it really cool that with this company you can decide how much the tour is worth and just tip the guide afterwards, great system!

“The Real Philadelphia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Jenn did a fantastic job in blistering heat enthusing us with the real Philadelphia.

From food to culture and dips into Philadelphia history both old and new her knowledge was complete and her delivery engaging.

We even got to celebrate the birthday of Dr Physick inventor of the soda pop; complete with free cherry cupcake ;)

Based on how good this was we signed up for another tour the following day.

Rebecca did a great job on another blistering hot day guiding us through historical Philadelphia.

She even rearranged the tour to allow us to witness the re-enactment of the Declaration of Independence the perfect end to all we covered that day.

After both of these we will be signing up for yet more tours hopefully as good as these.

Jennifer was our guide and she was knowledgeable, articulate, and interesting. Also gave us helpful tips in regard to where to eat. We covered a lot in a matter of 2 hours. Definitely worth going. Thanks Jennifer.

“Chinatown and Historic Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

We took both tours with Jenn and were happy with both. I appreciated the Chinatown tour as Jenn took us to different restaurants and told us about the different offerings in each and gave us her recommendations. We were then free to buy what we wanted instead of other food tours where you have no choice in the food samples. We were a small group on a Sunday afternoon so there wasn't much of an issue with waiting in long lines to buy our own food. We learned a lot and I was very happy we did walking tours as I think we would have missed too much if we had done the same tours by bus.

“Great Tour -- Very Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

My family and I participated in a tour with Jenn on a recent trip to Philadelphia. Jenn shared some very interesting information about the city and its history. We all learned a lot. Jenn was receptive to questions and welcomed interactive conversation. We enjoyed our two hour tour and would recommend it to others. The only down side were others on the tour -- a couple that consistently talked during Jenn's remarks and two teenagers that asked inappropriate questions.
