We went on 2 tours with Joseph back to back and had a great time! He was informative and entertaining. We enjoyed our time. Jenn was amazing for the Real Philly tour. I will definitely recommend these tours for others. My knowledge of Philly was basically 0. I have fallen in love with it.

I have just pretty much done 2 weeks of tours and have to say that this was one of the very best. Our guide was informative and full of passion about Philadelphia - previous capital of the USA. In fact I came off this tour so inspired by what I'd learned about William Penn, The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution... More

This was an amazing tour with a VERY personable and energetic tour guide, Matthew Brenner, and all I can say is that I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this tour for anybody who wants to find out a lot of hidden secrets about Philly you probably wouldn't have known before taking this tour! So awesome!

Josh did a great job of educating and entertaining us on the Independence Mall. This is a great way to see much of the city's history all packed in a 2.5 hour walking tour. I definitely recommend it!

Our tour guide Marianne was the best guide I have had on a tour. She really knew the Old City well and had a great sense of humor. This was more then just a history of the 1800's. She included everything up to modern day events in the area. We walked, talked and had a great time learning about the... More

The tour is great. Although the weather didn't accompany us, Joseph - our guide- was super kind, knowledgeable and guided us all through philly's history and American history as well. He was open to questions all the time, spoke in a clear voice and most important of all, never lied, when he wasn't sure about something he would just simply... More

I had a great experience with Joseph as our tour guide. I only had a few hours to spare and wanted to get the most of my time here and I'm glad I went with this tour. Joseph went over a lot of fun anecdotes and gave interesting tidbits. He was able to answer our groups random questions thoroughly. You... More

See almost everything you might see on a more expensive tour. The guide even gave us some facts you would never get on a higher priced tour.
