With a seedier R-Rated mature audience's aspect, Grim Philly reveals the less told, often bloody; sometimes embarrassing (grim) histories of our city through meticulously researched tours conducted by professors, authors, and young professionals. Ghost and vampire lore are explored, and language used by our guides is more than often not suitable for children or the prudish. A wide variety of topics include ghost hunting, serial killers, and gangsters to magick, Voodoo and brothels; riots, local pirates, and the Jersey Devil. Tours are offered by foot, tavern, and boat. Voted Best Philly tours and featured on Travel Chanel- we are open year round though offerings, hours, and departure change seasonally.

Had a great tour with Ted. Awesome guy, he was hilarious and absolutely delightful. Although we weren't able to go into any of the sites, he made things fun and interesting. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Our guide Dustin was great! I loved the history of the city and that he let us know which stories were more legit and which were basically a bunch of bologna.

I loved all the info and history our guide shared with us but I wouldn't call it a scary tour. We were still very happy we took it, just not what I was expecting for such a gruesome name.

Ted Sisco was our guide for the night. They meet you outside of the Visitor Center, which is good because you can use the bathroom facilities before they close and before the tour starts. There is a lot of adult humor, some swearing (which he...More

Did the Vampires and Ghosts tour with Dustin as our guide. It was a nice walk around the Independence Hall area and learned a lot about historical Philadelphia with some naughty and paranormal bits mixed in.
