Glen, our guide clearly loves his city and educated us about its rich history! We had so much fun learning about the historical figures, the way of life before during and after the revolution as well as what life is like today. Plus his recommendations for food were really helpful because we earned a meal after our walking tour!

This is the perfect 2 1/2 hour tour for history buffs. Learn the inside scoop on Betsy Ross, Alexander Hamilton, Ben Franklin and more, and see some of the key sites in the "Old City." Jenn was an amazing guide, her enthusiasm, contagious. My teens kept the pace and found her stories scintillating. A total bargain at "pay what you... More

We did this tour on Thursday April 6th and it was a very rainy day but our guide kept us informed and dry as much as he could. Great over sight to the historical part of Philadelphia. I would highly recommend.

the tour I took in Philadelphia was the downtown tour with Josh. i think he was really great. Those 2 hours just passed by really really fast. On the way we went to the Christ Church, where another tour guide gave us a fantastic lecture about the history of the place. Josh is a very nice person, good tour guide... More

A great experience for a tourist looking for something different than the Liberty Bell. My kids loved the soup dumplings at the end.

Highly recommend this tour, especially for those who are on a short visit and would like to explore the city. The guide Marianne was highly knowledgeable, and was able to explain the history very well.

We went on 2 tours with Joseph back to back and had a great time! He was informative and entertaining. We enjoyed our time. Jenn was amazing for the Real Philly tour. I will definitely recommend these tours for others. My knowledge of Philly was basically 0. I have fallen in love with it.

I have just pretty much done 2 weeks of tours and have to say that this was one of the very best. Our guide was informative and full of passion about Philadelphia - previous capital of the USA. In fact I came off this tour so inspired by what I'd learned about William Penn, The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution... More

This was an amazing tour with a VERY personable and energetic tour guide, Matthew Brenner, and all I can say is that I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this tour for anybody who wants to find out a lot of hidden secrets about Philly you probably wouldn't have known before taking this tour! So awesome!

Josh did a great job of educating and entertaining us on the Independence Mall. This is a great way to see much of the city's history all packed in a 2.5 hour walking tour. I definitely recommend it!
