Super fun! I learned a lot about Philadelphia history that I did not know and it was a great walking tour.

Really enjoyed the walk and history. Our guide was good but a little too dramatic. When he would put on his accent and try to sound scary he was totally intelligible- couldn’t understand a word he said. That detracted from the tour. I would recommend the same tour, and even same guide as long as he just spoke in a normal voice. It was distracting to his entire audience ( I think he may have been trying to do it for the children but I don’t think they cared)

Tour guide was hard to understand at times but was all around energetic and knowledgeable. Would recommend!
