Funny Entertaining Informative
, May 2022
Our tour guide was so funny and knowledgeable, he kept us entertained the entire time and told us a lot of very interesting, lesser known facts about Philadelphia that you might not hear on other tours. He told ghost stories with sound effects, body movements, and inflection, and it was obvious that he was having as much fun as we were. He also made sure everyone on the tour was safe, helping us watch our step and to not stand too close to the edge of the sidewalk, and made sure everyone was able to keep up when changing locations.

Unfortunately it was raining, lighting and thunderstorms…. The guide was nice but we had no cover and he didnt stop so we had to leave within the first 10mins Had the weather been different maybe it would be ok
Walking Ghost Tour DOES NOT go inside buildings
, Apr 2022
We were expecting a ghost tour that takes you inside of old buildings. This was simply a walking tour. The terrible weather with rain and wind did not help. Our guide was very good and did an amazing job with all the issues. However, they should have definitely canceled the tour because there was thunder, rain, and wind. Many people including myself and my group left the tour and called Ubers.
Hear tour - our guide was a pro!

The weather was terrible - rainy and stormy. However, our guide was a pro! He kept going and dealt with the distractions without breaking stride (we also had several disruptive people in our group). He handled everything beautifully and we had a great time!

Guide was an excellent story teller and enjoyed walking through the historic areas. Walking pace was not too fast which was good for me.
