More historic than ghostly, but that's more than ok, I am a long time Philly resident and always love to learn new historical events. And we visited some of my old haunts along the way.

I enjoyed the tour. I appreciated our tour guide's performance. He did a good job of including pop culture with history. At times, I found the stories a bit difficult to follow.
