The tour was really informative and entertaining. Our guide, Maria Veneziano is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was quite hot on the day of our tour, so it would be a good idea to take a hat and water bottle with you.

We took The Good, The Bad and The Philly tour with guide Joseph and it was very well done. Joseph pulls back the curtain on some of Philadelphia's lesser known but nonetheless fascinating historical events and people. We highly recommend this tour.

We had private tours with the company and were very pleased! Our two-three hour private tours were a little over $200. Well worth it! Some in our group also tipped the guides.

You would have to contact the firm. The mosaics and murals are included in the real Philly tour. Look in the free by foot schedule to see when the tour is running. The tour is 4.5 hours long and is very interesting.
