A great, fun tour. Interesting and informative. Great guide.

Took the tour with my wife, adult daughters and an out-of-town guest. We all enjoyed the tour. It was a good mix of Philadelphia and US history, some ghost stories and stories about brothels and prostitutes. Definitely "R" rated. Not for children or prudes. Our guide was a young woman with masters degree in history. She was great. My wife and I grew up in Philadelphia and are quite familiar with colonial Philadelphia and 18th and 19th century Philadelphia history, but still learned new things from the tour. I highly recommend this tour. A fun 90+ minutes; well worth the cost.
