Tim brought our founding fathers, especially Ben Franklin, and so many other unsung heroes of the American Revolution to life during our thoroughly enjoyable and educational walk. His passion for history was contagious and we learned so much.

A nice intro to Philly

Tim, our guide was very informative. Seems like he is very passionate about the topic of American Revolution and history in general. He kept us engaged and at times he was funny. The only issue I had with this tour, none of Tim's fault, is the mask. It was very challenging to pay attention to him at times especially in noisy areas. I wish he had a clear mask that shows his mouth so we could follow his lips. Those masks exist, they make them for hearing impaired and for speech therapists who work with small children. Otherwise, I would recommend this tour.

Tim was terrific. Very knowledgeable about the city and the information was presented in a way that was interesting to my kids (ages 15, 15, 11 and 8). Good sense of humor as well which kept it enjoyable.

Tessa gave a tour just for my wife and me, and it was very interesting. Be aware that it requires a fair amount of walking, although I didn't track the distance.
