    We did this tour at noon and were the only 2 participants. We were a bit late to arrive and had some other difficulties too, but our guide reached out to us personally to confirm we were on our way which was very nice. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and patient with all my questions. It was a great way to explore Philadelphia history and a fully wonderful experience all around!

    Architectural of the buildings was amazing! Our tour guide Jacob was fantastic … very thoughtful and was the main reason we enjoyed the tour so much.

    Our tour guide Michael was great! Even though it was only my bf and I who booked that time slot, he made the tour worthwhile. He was very knowledgeable and told us more side infos on the place and people we passed during the tour. We had a great time and that time did not feel like an hour and a half. It flew by fast 😊. But all in all, amazing tour and amazing tour guide.

    We enjoyed learning about the first steps (and the people)involved in creating the US. Some facts and events were unknown to us. The tour leader (Peter, I think) was excellent! He was friendly, and he spoke with clarity and volume so that there was no trouble hearing him.
