Did two walking tours with them. Mike and Jen were very knowledgable and enthusiastic. The Real Philadelphia is a lot of walking but very interesting and worthwhile to get a feel for and an appreciation of Philly outside the historic district. The tour of the historical sites is just perfect. Neither tour guide introduced their tipping policy (they work only for tips!) and as a result, about two thirds of the folks on a 4.5 hour tour did not tip. PLEASE TIP. It is only fair.

Great tour, very informative and good pace. We even had enough time to grab a phili-cheesesteak from Geno's during our mini break in the Italian district. We loved seeing all the sights and hearing about the history from our live tour guide, Michael. It's great since we pay the guide a tip based upon We would definitely recommend to visitors and we are excited to try the other tours in their other cities.

My husband and I took a trip to Philly for our wedding anniversary, there were quite a few things we were interested in seeing and places we wanted to visit. While there, at the last minute we decided that maybe the best way to see the most in the time we had, would be to take a bus tour. That was SO cool! Our tour guide Mike was so animated, informative, personable and friendly. He told us hat later that night he did a "Ghosts" of Philly walking tour, if we were interested. Me being the paranormal junkie in the family, of course I was interested. Not to mention, HELLO... It was hosted by Mike! He was just the best guide, both on the bus and on the foot tour. If you are ever in Philly, definitely take Mike's guided foot tour of Phiily's most haunted. The history was incredible, as was the guide.

Our tour guide, Mike, knew tons of factoids that he shared, had an easygoing personality and kept a good pace. We saw areas of Philly that we might not have ventured to find on our own and learned lots of interesting facts about the area and the historical figures. Would definitely join another Free Tours by Foot.
