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.

One the tiny, short little alley that is Elfreths can be found rows of old brick homes and even a comical Union Jack flag, just for the laughs. See Old Philly as it existed in colonial times, imagine how people lived on such tiny streets and in such tiny homes. Of course, people still live in such tiny living spaces now we just have apartment buildings. Still, it is so small scale and intimate it makes you wonder how well you had to know your neighbors.

A lovely, history street on the east end of Philly. We had a bit of trouble navigating to this street from Independence Hall mostly due to construction. It was less than a 10 minute walk. We explored every nook and cranny possible and enjoyed being transported to early America. There are plenty of places to stop for food and drink before/after the visit. These are inhabited residences, so keep that in mind and be respectful of their property.

wish Philadelphia invested more in preserving old group of buildings like these and respect its architectural legacy. This is an experience, and free!

Beautiful street. Highly recommend booking a tour that takes you past this. There are many fun details, facts, and history you would miss out on throughout the city without a tour.

Very interesting area! We contacted the alley museum and did a tour (Fall 2020 update - they only do tours on a reservation basis). I would recommend the alley museum - you get an inside look at one of the homes.
