Amazing Tour for Parents and Teens

Lois bravely guided our U14 hockey team and their parents on a 3-hour tour. Everybody loved it! Her passion for Philadelphia is infectious. Would highly recommend.

This was my family's first time ever visiting Philadelphia and we didn't really have much of a plan. But Lois as a tour guide who waited patiently when we were at the mint showed us the top historical attraction in the beautiful city of Philadelphia. Lois had everything all planned out, she got us tickets to tour Independence hall ahead... More

I took this tour with my daughter and found that Lois was able to span the difference in our ages. Lois showed us many places. Some of my favorites were Elfreth's Alley, Bladen's Court, Betsy Ross' House, the National Constitution Center and the Liberty Bell. Lois is a native Philadelphian and her passion for the city is evident throughout the... More

I found See My Philadelphia through Trip Advisor by searching for top private tour guides. I can tell you that I am only disappointed that I could only give our tour guide, Lois Linden, an excellent rating. She is surely tops as far as Philadelphia tour guides goes and somehow "excellent" doesn't do her justice. Lois exceeded our expectations right... More

I have lived in Philadelphia for a year and never had any desire to delve into the history of the city. My mother came to visit and I booked this tour as I thought it would be something she might be interested in. In the end, we both loved it. The history lesson wasn't dry or monotonous. Lois made it... More

We really wanted to visit Philadelphia on a recent visit to Pennsylvania. I have always had a love for early American history; and my husband and I love touring historical buildings. Neither of us felt confident about our ability to find our way around a big city, find parking and see everything we wanted to. That's why Lois' tour seemed... More

Lois took me, my son (13) and daughter (9) on a 3 hour combination driving / walking tour the day we arrived in Philly. We wanted an overall view of the city so we could efficiently navigate for the rest of our visit. On a good day, my kids are a handful. On this day we had spent the morning... More

Lois took my 12 year old son and me on a 1/2 tour of Philadelphia. Part walking, part driving. She made it fun for both of us. She suggested we see U Penn, as well, which was a great idea and we took her up on it. She shared her favorite cheesesteak joint and we were treated to complimentary cannolis... More

Myself and the Parenting Group I teach along with there children had an awesome tour. Ms. Lois did an excellent job with crowd control. She was attentive to the adults as well as the children. She was friendly, very organized and showed excitement when sharing information about the wonderful city of Philadelphia. It was evident she has a warm heart... More

Lois communicated with me via email and then phone to set up my personal tour. We spent 3 hours starting in the historic colonial area where she shared great information and insights as we walked. I asked several questions leading to more in depth information on subjects of interest to me. Lois was very accommodating in taking these in stride.... More
