The 4 hour tour is amazing. It gave me such a good overview of the city. It doesn't feel rushed because it is 4 hours, but you can definitely still go back to some of the places to you see to enjoy them more! The guides are amazing too!

What a great time in Philly! I took the ghost tour with Mike on Saturday, Oct 13. He was on time, on point and professional. No goofy gimmicks or costumes, just well-researched reports of the supernatural phenomena. Trust me, you do NOT want to spend your money on a tour that herds enormous groups like we saw!

I also took the historic tour with Matthew on Saturday Oct 13 and so enjoyed his unique presentation of the sights. He was friendly and knowledgable and so entertaining. It was my birthday and was all the more memorable thanks to Free Tours By Foot!! Thanks a bunch!!

Came out here for a conference and booked the Real Philadelphia and Freedom Rings tour less than 10 hours before the first tour started. Online booking was simple and received confirmation email right away. Jen was the tour guide for both tours. She was absolutely amazing! Spent pretty much my whole day with her and she kept up this energy that kept the whole group going.

Freedom Rings (10am - 12pm): This 2 hour tour covered the old city. Jen was so knowledgeable in the history of the city and surrounding cities. The group was big and it took time to to keep everyone together. But Jen was great about being timely. We did go over by 30 min but everyone on the tour was ok with it because there was so much to hear, see, and learn. Worth your time to get your day started on seeing the other great sites of the city.

Real Philadelphia Tour (1pm - 5pm): Great "off the beaten path" tour. We saw all the hidden treasures that Philly has to offer. You have to take the tour to find out what I am talking about. Also got to stop at a few places to eat. Really worth your time. MUST DO!

We took the Ghost tour with Jenn on 9/21 and the Real Philadelphia tour with Mike on 9/22. Both of these tours were informative and both guides were great. The ghost tour was more entertaining than scary and Jenn's enthusiasm really added to the fun. Don't forget a camera for the Real Philadelphia tour because the murals are something you'll want to see again. If you are looking forward to visiting the Italian Market, make sure you plan on going before this tour or returning after. We had about a half an hour for something to eat & a bathroom break so we needed to return to explore the market more. We would definitely recommend Free Tours by Foot and look forward to doing other tours in outer cities.

On a cool night with a little fog, this was perfect weather for a ghost tour of historic Philadelphia. Our tour guide Jenn really knew her ghosts. She entertained us with the funny/scary stories of murder and mayhem throughout the alleys and side-streets around Independence Hall. There was also nice quiet time between locations to just walk; enjoying the night and the picturesque cobblestone streets. I was also impressed with the concern for the safety of all 11 of us as we crossed streets and turned corners. One lady walked with a cane, but she was able to keep up with us very nicely on this leisurely, informative and fun tour. An evening well spent!
