Our guide Tim was very informative especially about little known historical information . A suggestion would be to have more printed information about what would be seen on the tour. Also someone in our party suggested tour guide wearing a company shirt for a little more professionalism. Loved our guide.

We enjoyed this walking tour. Tim was an excellent guide and storyteller. He had a great sense of humor. We could have walked and listened for another hour, it was a really good experience. Thank you.

AWSOME PHILLY HISTORY TOUR with Tour Guide “Ryan”
Donald_O
, Sep 2021
This is a Must Do tour if you are interested in US history! Our Tour Guide “Ryan” blew us away with his in-depth description explaining the significants of Philadelphia to the formation of the USA. Take this tour first if you are visiting the city for more than one day so you have time to go back and visit the buildings viewed and discussed during the tour.
