I advised your company on multiple occasions we were not taking the tour because it is advertised at 8 pm but it actually occurs at 2pm. You may want to update the web to reflect that. We did not take the tour as I advised you we would not even be in town. You keep sending me info on a tour I could not take and told you at least twice to take me off the reservation. Thx Phil Schintler

I absolutely love the Grim Philly Tour’s and Ted was amazing tour guide!

The Serial Killers and Cemetery tour is good and has a lot of great information about Philly history. Pros: Ted is funny, engaging and knowledgeable. He's a high school history teacher, so he knows his stuff and his passion for everything historical oozes from his pores. He's phenomenal! The stories and tidbits he shared were fascinating. Cons: The tour is just too long (2.5 hours, but mine was longer). Maybe it's because I'm more interested in serial killers than cemeteries, but the tour was about 50% cemeteries, 35% history, 15% serial killers. The workers at Christ Church take over the tour at that point. It would have been nice to know that earlier for tipping purposes. I believe we had Bob. He was knowledgeable but scattered in his delivery and he spent more time chatting us up than giving us pertinent information. He chatted for at least an extra 20 minutes and extended our already too long tour. Also, there was a chatty girl in our group who must have thought she was giving the tour. I do wish the guide had done a bit more to shut her down. Between the guide at Christ Church and the gabby girl, 30-45 minutes was tacked onto the already too long tour.
