Great tour of the dark side of philly - Really fun and informative tour! It's nice to get some paranormal and true crime history that isn't cheesy and over dramatized. Or trying to cheat with jump scares, real history is spolky enough! Ted was super knowledgeable, funny and approachable. Would definitely recommend!

Awesome Customer Service - The customer service was AWESOME. I paid for two tickets on Viator (3rd party website), and 30 minutes before the tour, something unexpected came up and we were unable to go. I had received a text from the company to confirm attendance, and when I explained we would be absent, they offered to move our tickets to a tour the next day for FREE- regardless of Viator’s no refund/cancellation policy. We will be going to the tour tonight and we can’t wait. Thank you Joe from Grim for your wonderful customer service!!!

Our dark history of Philadelphia with Christa. - Christa, an American History teacher with a Master’s degree led us through the lesser-known history of Revolutionary Era Philadelphia. The tour was exactly as described, but more enjoyable than we imagined. Even though the air temperature was in the 90s, when we left, as the sun began to set it cooled down to a very comfortable temperature with a nice breeze and our tour guides pace and frequent stops to talk allowed all members of our Tour group to sit and take a break. The tour is not for children and attendees should understand that adult language and visuals are used just as described in the Tour description. The tour lasted about two hours and was very fun! it is everything we wanted and needed in a tour of the historical places in Philadelphia and I would recommend it for anyone who wants a slightly different look historical Philadelphia.
