We took the Free Tour by foot in Philadelphia for 4 hours, but it lasted 5 hours. Jennifer was our guide and she could answer any single question of the group. She was energetic, enthusiastic and gave us the best tips for tourism in the area. We walked in different neighbourhoods and took us to places we wouldn't have found on our own. We had time to eat, to observe, to enjoy the walk, take pictures. She always took care that nobody got lost or behind. She explain the history of each place in a very enjoyable way.
We visited so many places and it was NEVER boring or too long, I could have been walking with Jenn knowing Philadelphia longer! The tour was fun, full of knowledge, and the best vibe!
At the end, you pay what you can afford, that's true. Jenn never looked at what she was receiving at the end, she only gives the greatest smile!
If I visit another city I will look for the Free Tours by Foot.

Jenn did an amazing job of showing us the "real" Philadelphia on the 4 hour tour. My husband was very reluctant to obligate himself to walking for that length of time, but I convinced him to "give it a go", telling him we could leave the tour at any time. I have to say that I've been on many walking tours in many cities over the years, but this was absolutely one of the best! We went beyond the usual tourist areas into the "real" Philadelphia. We saw different neighborhoods and learned a lot about the history of the city and of our country. There were so many highlights that it is hard to list them all, but by the end of the tour, we felt we "knew" the heart of the city. By the way, 5 hours later we were exhausted, but my husband told me that the tour was "awesome" and made his vacation a success! Thanks, Jenn!

Our tour guide Jenn did a fabulous job of bringing Independence Mall to life. The 2+ hour tour was just about the right amount of time to cover the ground we did. And, she kept us both entertained and informed. As an unexpected extra, we got to sit in the pews at Christ Church and get a very informative intro to that site as well. At the end of the tour, Jenn made herself available to all to ask for further recommendations about restaurants, sights and transportation around Philly. Jenn strikes a nice balance between fun and informative and really keeps your attention. I might not recommend the Independence Mall tour for children under 10 unless they have a particular interest in history though.

We recently attended the Freedom Rings Tour in Philadelphia with Parents (grandparents) and two boys (aged 11 and 9) while visiting the US from the UK and had an excellent time.
Matthew our guide was great and provided enough details, dates and interesting facts to keep everyone engaged for the 2 hours.
These tours are great for anyone visiting a city who want a compressed history of the American Independence and too see the main sites with some local knowledge thrown in - would thoroughly recommend to anyone else.

Jenn was awesome on this tour! Our family of 4 from Pittsburgh (kids ages 10 and 11) took the Freedom Rings walking tour in Philly last week and it was a great experience. We recommend this tour highly. Jenn was so energetic and insightful, yet also patient and kept the 20+ people together through the busy streets of Philly. She made sure everyone including the kids were engaged and accounted for, and she answered every question the group had with knowledge, humor and enthusiasm. Great guide, great historical knowledge, great City of Philadephia!
