Great experience

My girlfriend and I went on a tour this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, and really made us active participants during the tour by asking us questions. He was also able to answer all the questions we had for him. It was a very enjoyable experience and we hope to return for one of the other tour options.

A must if you're visiting Philly for the first time! You learn about so many historical sites in such a short period of time. The guide was extremely knowledgable and also offered recommendations about food and things to do while in Philly. Highly recommend!

This was a nice tour to get to know the city in a short amount of time. We can into Philly late the night before we had this tour booked at 10am the next day. Connor was a good guide and because of the COVID times, we were able to get a private tour by him as we were the only ones signed up for this time slot.
