  • This tour was amazing!

  • Very interesting tour. Our tour guide, Tim, was very personable. We the customers were pressed for time and since out tour was very small we were able to speed it up by brisk walking. So we got a little exercise to boot. Will definitely book more Viator tours.

  • Our guide was wonderful

  • Tim was great! He was knowledgeable, interesting and funny. Learned a lot about colonial Philadelphia and the Revolutionary War. Highly recommend!

  • This was the best tour we took in Philly. The guide was very informative. He also took a couple of breaks for bathroom or drinks, which was nice. I loved the stories he told and all of the details about the buildings and the way life was like in colonial times. A

  • Absolutely loved the tour! So worth the money! My family and I enjoyed the stories, the history told about the sites as well as the other guests! We would have never been able to see everything we wanted to see without the tour.

  • Interesting. Tim was a good guide

  • My 17 year son and I really enjoyed our walking tour. Tim and Chip were GREAT. This was the last day of a long trip visiting historical sites and taking tours. My 17 year son decided he was DONE with tours. But He really liked this tour. Tim and Chip are both former teachers and GREAT instructors.

  • Tim gave a great tour! He packed in a tremendous amount of interesting history along with a great sense of humor along the way.

  • We loved our walking tour - very small group - lots of time to ask questions - we never stumped out guide. He was funny and helped make learning history fun! The reason we came to Philadelphia was to give our son a visual tour of everything he is about to learn in honors history this fall term - he talked about the facts and stories he had learned the entire way home in the car - mission accomplished - thank you for a great family experience.
