We thoroughly enjoyed the informative tour 2 hour walking tour led by Lois in the historic area of Philadelphia. Even though I have lived in Philly for over 40 years, I learned lots of new facts and saw sights that were new to me. It was really fun and at a relaxed pace with plenty of opportunities for sharing observations... More

Lois took myself and my friend, a Philly native, on a walking tour in the "Old City" area of downtown Philadelphia. Before the tour we consulted with her to explain our interests and she did a wonderful job of incorporating our interests into the tour. This was my first time in Philly and I had low expectations. I can tell... More

Lois bravely guided our U14 hockey team and their parents on a 3-hour tour. Everybody loved it! Her passion for Philadelphia is infectious. Would highly recommend.

This was my family's first time ever visiting Philadelphia and we didn't really have much of a plan. But Lois as a tour guide who waited patiently when we were at the mint showed us the top historical attraction in the beautiful city of Philadelphia. Lois had everything all planned out, she got us tickets to tour Independence hall ahead... More

I took this tour with my daughter and found that Lois was able to span the difference in our ages. Lois showed us many places. Some of my favorites were Elfreth's Alley, Bladen's Court, Betsy Ross' House, the National Constitution Center and the Liberty Bell. Lois is a native Philadelphian and her passion for the city is evident throughout the... More

I found See My Philadelphia through Trip Advisor by searching for top private tour guides. I can tell you that I am only disappointed that I could only give our tour guide, Lois Linden, an excellent rating. She is surely tops as far as Philadelphia tour guides goes and somehow "excellent" doesn't do her justice. Lois exceeded our expectations right... More

I have lived in Philadelphia for a year and never had any desire to delve into the history of the city. My mother came to visit and I booked this tour as I thought it would be something she might be interested in. In the end, we both loved it. The history lesson wasn't dry or monotonous. Lois made it... More

We really wanted to visit Philadelphia on a recent visit to Pennsylvania. I have always had a love for early American history; and my husband and I love touring historical buildings. Neither of us felt confident about our ability to find our way around a big city, find parking and see everything we wanted to. That's why Lois' tour seemed... More

Lois took me, my son (13) and daughter (9) on a 3 hour combination driving / walking tour the day we arrived in Philly. We wanted an overall view of the city so we could efficiently navigate for the rest of our visit. On a good day, my kids are a handful. On this day we had spent the morning... More
