Cemetery and Serial Killers Walking Tour of Philadelphia

We were visiting Philadelphia from MA and while planning the trip we were advised of the Grim Philly walking tours. We saw the serial killer one which is right up our alley, as my fiancée and I are interested in that topic. We met Ted at the designated time and place. For the next 2 1/2 hours Ted told us stories and walked us to designated spots and shared his knowledge of the topic material as well as the overall history of the people of Philadelphia and the city itself. It was obvious to us that Ted was very knowledgeable about the city and it’s history. This tour was so much fun and very entertaining. He was personable and encouraged questions. I would highly advise taking one of these tours and if possible request Ted. Be sure to dress appropriately because 2 1/2 hours can get cold in the winter time. Luckily, we were prepared and the cold did nothing to take away from our experience. Thank you Ted for the awesome tour and for sharing your knowledge with us. We would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys real stories about serial killers. Ted is extremely knowledgeable in this field, and it shows!

Ted is a great tour guide, full of relevant info about Philadelphia, history and the "dark side." Very humorous and the walk proceeded at a good pace. It was my second tour with him and I will look to book again when we next visit the city. Highly recommend!!

Great tour! Our guide, Ted, was excellent. He was an engaging presenter and really knew his stuff. The tour was informative and entertaining -- just the right amount of horror. My parents have been to Philadelphia several times and have done all the typical tourist stuff, so they really enjoyed this 'alternative' tour of the city they thought they knew! We'll be back for another one in the spring. Thanks Ted!

Informative and interesting tour of Historic Philly. The tour guide, Ted, was passionate and knowledgeable and made it a great experience. For adults interested in murders/serial killings, this is a great tour of a small portion of Philly

Ted gave a really great tour. Very knowledgeable and interesting. He knew the answers to most questions and when he did not, he just said so. The tour ran well over 2 hours and I really felt we all got our money’s worth.

Ted was our guide, he was awesome. Serial killer stories from local Philadelphia people with all the gory details. Walking to several historical sites to intertwine the history of Philadelphia with our country founding. Ted kept it lively, informative and fun. Easy pace nothing was rushed.

My friends and I went on both the Serial Killer and Cemetery tour and the Vampires, Sex and Ghosts tour today. Both were excellent. Although there were two different tour guides, they were both Very knowledgeable and entertaining and kept us wanting more. The Serial Killer/Cemetery tour covered historical facts about the Revolutionary period, as well as a shocking number of serial killers that committed their crimes in the Philadelphia area. One even killed his own son. I highly recommend these tours!
