Our tour guide was very good at what he did. He had a firm knowledge of the buildings on the tour, the men and when whose stories were covered in the tour, etc. He was also professional, spoke clearly, and could be easily heard. He was also very friendly to everyone in our tour group. However, his personal hygiene was lacking. It was apparent to all the members of my family that he had not bathed in a number of days (body odor smell). And his clothing was very soiled, in particular, his shirt and shorts. These are small things, but it was why I did not give the tour a 5 star rating. However, we would recommend to tour to friends and family. We really enjoyed it.
I would have enjoyed seeing more authentic materials besides guns/swords. Loved seeing the tent though.
I loved this tour! Melissa was my tour guide, and she was extremely knowledgeable and friendly! This was my first time in Philadelphia, and there is no other tour I would recommend!
I was a little disappointed that we didn't get closer to the Liberty Bell or the Betsy Ross house, but I understand the time constraints/waiting in line. We walked back to the Betsy Ross house and Elfreth's Alley after the tour, so that was helpful. Our guide Connor was professional and funny and we enjoyed our tour.
Wonderful guide, very knowledgeable, great fun, just the right length
Melissa had the perfect combination of friendliness, all the information we could handle, great responses to our questions, good perspective on past events and an engaging sense of humor. The amount of time for the tour was appropriate - weather was fine - tour must be awful on cold, hot or rainy days!
Great walking tour and good leader. We will take other tours when we return to Philadelphia.
Conner, our tour guide, was amazing. He was patient, funny, and made the entire experience fantastic!
Conner was very informative and entertaining! We would definitely recommend!
Wonderful to see the buildings but we hoped for a more detailed visit at the stops. For 75 minutes I guess it is a balancing act. We enjoyed Andrew's knowledge and would go again.
This was a fantastic review of some key founding moments and people. Our guide was engaging and fun and we even got to see democracy in action when a protest swept by, lending itself to the aura of the history
Debbie was a great tour guide and I would highly recommend this tour to others!
Jason was a great guide! I am not American so I appreciated his clear, informative narration of the historical sites in Philadelphia. I would recommend this to anybody who was considering checking out the sites in Old City, much better than just looking on your own. Great value.
Your met my expectations. It was enjoyable and I learned new facts. Would recommend. However, I did. It learn a lot more than if I had downloaded a tour and listened on phone.
Friendly and knowledgeable tour guide
Very good tour, but it was often very difficult to hear the tour guide because of traffic noise.
Thought the group taking the tour would have been smaller. Hard to hear at some points. Try a portable microphone!
Our guide was great--very knowledgeable and friendly. However, we didn't realize we wouldn't be going into Independence Hall and into the building to see the Liberty Bell. We were just passing through town and didn't have time to see them once we'd completed the tour. It would have been better for us to just walk around on our own.
We would have liked for Sam to have explained that the reading of the Independence address was going to be held on the 8th
Was disappointed that we didn't get to tour any of the places we visited. Didn't know that when I booked it.
Out tour guide walked way too fast. I felt like we had to run to keep up! Otherwise it was fantastic!
It was all that we had hoped.
it was pretty good but there could be more interesting facts to share so that families could be engaged. It would be great to have a consideration for those kids that are attending.....we had one at Monticello that had physical entities to hand-out to kids to share when the time was appropriate so that they were more engaged during the time together.
Would've been nice to be able to go through some of the historical houses
Debbie was great! Walking distance was great! Being able to go inside the sites would have made this 5 stars.
Tour guide Melissa was very good. Expected better access (e.g. front of line) to Liberty Bell
The tour guide was wonderful. Was very informative. She was great. We never got to the Liberty Bell which was one of the main reasons I went on the tour.
While I enjoyed the walking tour, a friend had a hard time keeping the pace the guide set. There was little to no time to take unobstructed pictures, and I feel, a map of the tour should have been handed out.

I enjoyed the walk but it was not what I was hoping it would be. I would not recommend it to anyone who actually wants to see inside some of the buildings. You're better off getting a map and seeing the sights for yourself. Most everything you would want to see is free but you do need to watch your time, some places close earlier than others.
