Great evening with family

Fun night out with our large family in town for my nephew’s graduation. Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about Philadelphia history. Really great way to experience the city! If you aren’t familiar with the area, give yourself plenty of time to find parking.

Very Informative!

This was more of a history tour than a ghost tour. We were expecting something a bit more “spooky”, however, Steve was awesome! He had a ton of knowledge to share and was very friendly and accommodating!

Tour was very scripted and somewhat rushed. Guide didn’t really make a connection with the group. Some stories were long and somewhat boring.

Not too scary for kids.

James was pretty knowledgeable. It is nice to see the city from a different perspective. I may or may not have captured the image of a ghost in the window. See for yourself. Our guide used an EMF detector and a “Spirit Box”. We attended with an 8 and 10 yr old and it was not too scary for them. Overall I would recommend for something different to do while in Philly. We also got to see a “Karen” in the wild which out tour guide dealt with professionally.

Bad weather should cause a cancellation.

As the tour began, it was raining, windy, and lightening covered the area. Your leader did his best to keep interest, but story telling in the midst of weather like that was hardly of interest. As the Walking began, my wife and I abandoned the effort. We took Uber back to our hotel to dry out.

We were looking forward to the ghost tour but did not meet our expectation. A new tour guide person took us around but was not ready to take control of the tour. She needs more experience. The information was good but there were times that the tour person choked. The tour is fun but the correct person will make it better.
