This was a very fun and informative tour. Tim guided it perfectly with the pace, jokes, and information. I would definitely take this tour again.

Our guides knowledge and stories. I have taken probably six different tours and Tim"s enthusiasum made even a six year old pay attention. This tour is well worth the money. I would suggest you take this tour first before you do the liberty bell and or Independence Hall.

Our tour guide was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and interesting. He was great with our kids (11 and 14) they loved it. Definitely a must do for any Ben Franklin fan !

Learning about all the things Benjamin Franklin did was amazing. It was awesome seeing the places you learn about in school as a child.

Last part of the tour is most interesting to me and guide's humor. He answered all my questions in full.

Our guide was passionate about history and truly made an effort to connect with each person on the tour. He made the only child in the group (our friends’ daughter) feel included and engaged. The tour was quite informative, and even though we were hit by a light drizzle, it continued flawlessly from beginning to end. My friends and I discussed what we had learned the entire walk back to our hotel and wasted no time in recommending it to other friends who may visit Philadelphia.

Tour was delightful. Tessa was very knowledgeable, yet put a fun twist on everything. I would recommend the tour to anyone who is new to the city or just wanting to brush up on some local history Thank you
