We have lived in Philadelphia suburbs all of our lives, and traditionally take the cousins to a Philadelphia landmark the day after Thanksgiving. This tour was probably our favorite over the past 8 years. Our guide was informative and showed us sites we would normally just walk on by. The cousins ranged from ages 13 to 21 and talked about...

A good tour should leave you feeling good in the hours and days afterwards. The Philly Independence Mall tour was just such an experience. Marianne took us through key sites relating to the early history of Philly, all the while keeping the group well organized. I don't mind if tours go in depth on history, but I sometimes feel sorry...

I was really impressed with how tightly organized they are. The night before our guide, Maria, sent an email with both her mobile and her photo, making it a super easy to find her. Maria has an ebullient, infectious personality, and she really livened the tour up with her humor and fun. She was open to questions and was great... More

Our walking tour of the Italian Market was a fantastic day! Our guide was supremely knowledgeable and engaging, and we just loved the neighborhood. It's a fine way to spend a morning in Philadelphia.

My friend and I went on the China town tour ... with Jen ! It was great! Filling and provided with necessary history that brought food and people together. I would definitely do this tour. Jen even hung around to talk to us more after the tour was over . She suggested excellent bars in and around the center city... More

Thank you Jenn! First book ahead and use first and last name! You want this tour! We took the Independence tour and saw and learned a ton! It is like having your own personal tour guide and historian of the area. Start with this tour then you can decide where you want to spend more time later.

The Independence Mall Tour in Philadelphia was great! It was a good pace, and we were able to see a lot in the 2+ hours. I've done multiple Free Tours By Foot in NYC, Boston, and Buenos Aires, Argentina - and I've never been disappointed. The tour and the guides have always been great, across the board. I've recommended them... More

I really enjoyed my tour with Joseph. It was informative and included both ghosts and non-ghost but generally eerie tales. The trip was well-coordinated, without too much walking between stops, and the guide did a great job being concise and fun.
