A great, fun tour. Interesting and informative. Great guide.

Took the tour with my wife, adult daughters and an out-of-town guest. We all enjoyed the tour. It was a good mix of Philadelphia and US history, some ghost stories and stories about brothels and prostitutes. Definitely "R" rated. Not for children or prudes. Our guide was a young woman with masters degree in history. She was great. My wife and I grew up in Philadelphia and are quite familiar with colonial Philadelphia and 18th and 19th century Philadelphia history, but still learned new things from the tour. I highly recommend this tour. A fun 90+ minutes; well worth the cost.

It was a really informative tour with some humor thrown in here and there. Our tour guide, Terry, was very interesting and had some great facts and stories about the area. Remember it is an outdoor tour, so make sure you dress accordingly. Would definitely recommend this tour to others.
