Tour was wonderful! Our guide Dick Furstein was incredibly knowledgable and shared insights that had me thinking over some issues brought up for days. Graffiti and tags and what they represent. The quirkiness and heart of Isiah Zagar and his mosiacs. South Street, past and present. Immigrants and how they were represented and made their way. A look into Mexican Art and culture. So grateful we took the tour instead of just going it alone. A great walk thru the city, and the final stop of the Magic Gardens did not disappoint.

My partner and I were born and raised in Philadelphia and we LOVED this tour! I booked it because I had cousins coming in from Italy and wanted them to see a unique part of Philadelphia. We saw that and more! Our tour guide Chuck was WONDERFUL! He is immensely knowledgeable about the art and the neighborhood, having lived in South Philadelphia for most of his life. It was a pleasure to experience the uniquely artistic neighborhood of South Philly through Chuck’s eyes.

The tour guid, Chuck was passionate and knowledgeable about the art and history of Philadelphia. I enjoyed the places on this tour, not your typical sights but some true gems! I highly recommend taking time for this Philly art tour!

Truly fun tour of an area of Philadelphia that is artsy, vibrant and plenty to see. Chuck is a terrific and engaging guide of the area.
