Fantastic. The tour guide was absolutely amazing, and knew everything there is to know about colonial-era Philadelphia.

This was a great tour! Our guide explained and showed us what Philadelphia looked like and compared it to what we saw today. Lots of history facts that you just could not see on your own! I have back issues but the guide was very willing to slow down, stop, and let me rest while she told of the rich history of the city! Worth the price!

My family had an absolutely wonderful time with our guide, David!!
For a little over three hours, David provided great insight into our founding fathers, and the city of
Philadelphia. We learned so much and saw so much. I would highly recommend this tour as it is designed to provide a first hand look at our history in a small group setting filled with opportunity to ask questions and learn about our founding fathers. FANTASTIC
