With a seedier R-Rated mature audience's aspect, Grim Philly reveals the less told, often bloody; sometimes embarrassing (grim) histories of our city through meticulously researched tours conducted by professors, authors, and young professionals. Ghost and vampire lore are explored, and language used by our guides is more than often not suitable for children or the prudish. A wide variety of topics include ghost hunting, serial killers, and gangsters to magick, Voodoo and brothels; riots, local pirates, and the Jersey Devil. Tours are offered by foot, tavern, and boat. Voted Best Philly tours and featured on Travel Chanel- we are open year round though offerings, hours, and departure change seasonally.

Talk about a fun adventure off the beaten path! Learn about the history of Philadelphia and why they were happy being "corrupt and content." Our tour guide was Ted and his knowledge and delivery made the experience worth every penny! Definitely an adults only experience.

This was a lot of fun, combined bar crawl with historical site seeing. Joe was very knowledgeable and down to earth. I would highly recommend adding this to your philly to do list!
