    Nick was a knowledgeable tour guide with an intimate knowledge of Philadelphia’s history and central neighborhoods. Walking with him was like visiting with an old friend who just happens to love showing off his city. And then it’s capped off with a 30-minute free tour inside Independence Hall! A worthwhile way to spend an afternoon in Philly!

    The tour was great! Nick was sure to pick some spots that would peak the interest of my 6 year old. The whole family really enjoyed it.
