Very interesting tour. My wife and were part of a group of seven. Ariel, the leader, was very knowledgeable and friendly . I would highly recommend this tour as an alternative to just visiting historical sites. You get a real dose of local color.

We loved our tour with Urban Adventures. Our guide was Nina, a Philly native, and she was phenomenal- engaging, interactive, and knew so much about this city. She took us to so many interesting sights that we wouldn't have found on our own. Highly recommend!
