Upon a recommendation from a member in my book club I got tickets for myself and friends to "hop off" at the Eastern State Penitentiary. The outside dilapidated walls set us up for a hauntingly poignant step back in time to an unsuccessful attempt to solicit penitence. The audio and visual aids send you on an insightful journey through our penal system. I would strongly encourage anyone visiting Philadelphia to experience this incredible piece of history. I will have these images forever.

I purchased the two day pass and used every minute of each day. As an extra, I heard two different guides and learned different things. One day, I took it out to the zoo (which was fabulous) and since it was during a slow time, the guide suggested texting him when I was ready to return. He was most helpful and conscientious.

Longwood Gardens was a wonderful experience. Picking up the ticket I got from you was a hassle to claim. Seems they had never heard of you and as I was trying to get my ticket I was beginning to think we weren't going to be able to claim it or.

We rode the full loop twice— the first time was nice, so we decided to get some lunch then get back on to hitch a ride to the museum. The second guide, Sam, was SO knowledgeable and delightful, we stayed in for another full circuit.

A live guide is so much better than a recorded tour. The guide was outstanding, and he spoke so clearly that our visitor from South America understood everything. He and the driver were helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.
