What You Can Expect
Your spirited and informative guide will guide you past Independence Hall, the Library of Congress and two dozen other historical sights. Dare to visit whipping posts, gallows and Philadelphia's red light district. Hear some shocking facts about America's founding fathers and titillating stories about executions, mass burials, torture, sexual deviancy, vampires, pirates and ghosts.
Among the many spooky tales you'll hear are stories about pirate ghost ships sailing the Delaware River and spirits haunting City Tavern, an 18th-century tavern prominent in America's early history. After your 2-hour tour concludes across the street from the tavern, you're unlikely ever to look at Philadelphia the same way again!
What a fun way to see the city! Our guide was a grad student and she was informative and fun, she really new her Philadelphia history! Really a great time! I would highly recommend it!
Guide was excellent - good information, good interactive skill personality. Would recommend to others.
Good tour. Well worth the time spent on less publicized Philadelphia history.
Barnes Foundation, Mutter Museum, Ghost Tour, Independence Hall, City Tavern, ...All great!
This was a wonderful and enlightening tour with with a great guide
Our Guide had a great voice to project. We were a group of 12 which was perfect. We encouraged her to let us sit down at some sites while she talked. Very historic area- helpful getting buses back to our hotel. Interesting facts shared- not too ghosty but old history of Philadelphia.
Not as great as the Philadelphia Cemetery and Urban History Tour but fun none the less
The tour was very good. The tour guide Brittany was fantastic! She knew so much history and was very animated and really held our attention! We saw so many great sights and heard stories from throughout history of everything that is Philadelphia! Awesome tour! Would surely recommend this tour and guide to everyone!
A good tour, not as exciting as other tours I have taken
