It was informative with a relaxed vibe. Was surprised the guide was a college professor. The atmosphere was fun, there were snacks and period drinks. Very casual.

Today I took the Serial Killers and Cemeteries during the day (10am) and the Vampires, Sex and Ghosts tour at night (7:30pm). The SKC tour was pretty tame, rather PG-13 in my opinion, and leapt across from the 1700s through primarily the 1980s or so....More

It's good that tour companies do these walking and talking versions in the Old City, but there isn't much to get the willies about. It's just historical facts that might be a little obscure. Things that are supposed to be super creepy really aren't in...More

Our tour guide was amazing and I learned so much. Not only was it educational, but the cursing and candid nature of the tour was exceptional. We also got a few drinks and went to some cool places in olde city.

I love history, and sometimes exploring the more unseemly side of things is fun. That is exactly what this tour does. It is R rated, and will have you smiling, shocked, and newly acquainted with some of Philadelphia's darker side.
