Dark Philly Adult Night Tour

343 reviews
Leave the kids at home, because this night tour of Philly is strictly R-rated. Be led along the darker streets of the city, hearing stories of hauntings, executions, vampires, and other chilling tales. See the city's beautiful historic buildings lit up at night, and find out facts about them that you won't hear on standard daytime tours.

South Street is like a vein, it carries the blood and life. It's the major entertainment and social thoroughfare of South Philadelphia. It is busy at some times, quaint and quiet at others. It has old brick, new modernist, and tons and tons and tons of urban art and creativity. The glass murals stretch out from the Magical Gardens in the surrounding alleys and streets so be curious and don't be afraid to go off and back on the street by hitting the side streets. There is every manner of fun under the sun in this all encompassing street. You cannot go to South Street without seeing the murals, Lorenzos pizza, Bob & Barbara's dive bar, and the Tattooed Mom.

We have been down to South Street a few times over the summer and early fall, during the Covid-19 pandemic. We found lots of empty store fronts and lots of litter in the streets/sidewalks. Also, several homeless people were spotted laying on the sidewalks and in abandoned store entry/doorways. We did see one improvement in that several restaurants had opened up outdoor seating on the sidewalk or part of streets during Covid. Overall, South Street is NOT what it once was. Only reason I still go here is to get some of Lorenzo's legendary MEGA slices! I would not recommend except for the occasional visit to grab some excellent pizza.

We went just as things were opening up post-Covid, so we knew some things wouldn't be open yet. There was a lot of activity on the street, despite this. We did pop into a few stores (and found Rita's, our favorite place on Earth as of now), but at night this was a sketchy area. We were with our 15 year old daughter, and I felt safer having her on Bourbon Street at night 2 years ago. During the day, it's OK with certain aged kids,, but avoid at night.

South Street is probably Philadelphia's most famous street. It is known for restaurants, bars, and, of course, sex shops. I never had a bad experience on South Street including an evening where two other guys and I went bar hopping with one of my friends for his bachelor party in 2017. It is an interesting street.

We found South Street to be dirty with lots of bars and sex shops. Not what we thought it would be. Don't recommend it.
