It was very comprehensive tour and our tour guide Josh Silvers was particularly passionate about history. It seemed like he knew everything about everything in Philladelphia, it was quite impressive. Its mostly an external tour, but we figured out the places that we wanted to go back and deficate more time on. Great for a getting to know philly for the first time. Recommend.

Rick was great! We enjoyed our walk on a cold windy day. Very knowledgeable and patient with my slow walking mom and typical 11 year old!

Nina was an excellent tour guide! She was very knowledgeable and not only showed us some of the historical sites, but a few hidden gems too! The tour gives you an overall flavor of the historical sites and buildings and then you can decide which you want to go back to later on your own to go inside for tours.

Our tour guide was Nina, a native from Philly. We enjoyed walking around the city and learning so much!

We had a wonderful experience with Lori. She not only has a wealth of knowledge but she connected our American history to the religious, economic, philosophical and cultural evolution from Europe to their impact in the colonies. She has a great personality and loves her job. Really glad we decided to take the tour and will tell others.
