We decided to take this tour while in town for work training. We were lucky enough to be guided by Madame Toni, who was knowledgeable, entertaining, witty, and who’s sense of humor and personality took the experience from good to great! She was a delight from the first moment to the fantastic recommendation for pub nearby where we could grab a drink and warm up.

Toni did a magnificent job with our tour. she has a snarky sense of humor, and her knowledge of Philadelphia is on point. Totally worth it amd would highly recommend this tour to anyone in the area! plus she recommended a great bar afterwards Thank you Madam Toni!

I took the tour with Seamus and had a lovely time! I learned a lot, had some good laughs and left feeling like I knew a lot more about Philly and the history of the American Revolution.

Shamus was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would highly recommend this introductory tour.

Absolutely amazing!! A must do for anyone visiting.
