My husband and I just moved to the Philadelphia area, and were looking for a way to really get to know the historic part of the city. We loved our tour, and our tour guide Chris was excellent! We toured parts of town we'd seen before, but with the tour were able to see them in a whole new light. I'm going to recommend this tour when friends/family come to visit. It's a great way to get an overview of Philadelphia and the incredible American history that happened here.

Nina was a great tour guide! I was on a 3-person tour and it was open to conversation and questions. I really enjoyed the unique sites that you probably won't see on any other tour. It was great to learn from someone who genuinely enjoyed what they were doing and what they were talking about. Highly recommended!
