* A traveler said: "I chose this activity because it looked different than the typical Philadelphia history / museum / landmark tours. I also chose this because I read the 1st line in the description and knew my husband would be interested. This excursion did not disappoint in the least. We were delighted! We found out real facts in the 1st 5 minutes. We laughed. We remembered some things and learned additional details. My husband and I regularly take different bus tours in NYC. Until the day we took this musical tour, we always had in our minds what the best bus tour was. Others were good but nothing surpassed our favorite - UNTIL THIS! Book this tour immediately. Tell your friends. Tell your enemies, #lol!"

* A traveler said: "Rebecca is definitely one of my favourite tour guides ever. I love that her and her business partner have created a tour that is outside the box. By that I mean that yes you get the general history of Philly and William Penn BUT...she takes it to another level and focuses on people who have made a significant contribution but are often overlooked - women, people of colour, Native Americans and even I will admit that I knew very little about the contribution that LGBTQ people have made. On the day in question it was just Rebecca and myself but she gave 100% and I came away feeling like I had really learnt something but more importantly as a woman of colour I felt that our struggles, challenges and our strengths were really recognised and I'm grateful that she is one of the few who has taken the time to acknowledge that. I do tours like this in lots of places and even in the south, tours are very "men heavy". Outside of that, Rebecca was chill and we found we had a lot in common about how much we love to travel - as the only person on the tour we found we ended up talking about our personal lives as well as covering things that we are supposed to on the tour which made for a better experience. Due to my limited time in Philly, I missed out on the Badass women tour but I'm planning a trip back to Philly and I will definitely be booking that tour. I like to support the small business and I hope that tours like these continues to grow - book this tour!!!!!!! Thanks Rebecca"
