What people are saying about Chinatown, Philadelphia

D (SP?) did an outstanding job of ensuring we had a great 1hr tour of down town Philly. I really liked this companies' communication radios that were provided to each person so they could hear the guide during the tour. It really kept me engaged. I also appreciate D taking pictures throughout the tour, it kept Safety as the priority while on the busy streets.

We had a blast! "Sarge" was super supportive and patient throughout the learning phase and kept supporting when we went out to the street. He is full of Philadelphia's stories and fun facts and you can feel his passion to his city and job. If it is your first time in the city, Sarge is your man and if its your second third or whatever he still is.

This tour was the highlight of our first trip to Philly! "Sarge" was an awesome tour guide! Very informative, fun, and safe. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get to know Philly. My daughter and I enjoyed getting a chance to run up the "Rocky" steps and visit the oldest street in America!

D was an amazing and patient tour guide! Not all of us were confident on the segways. He was patient and instructive. The mural tour was awesome and he took some amazing pictures of us !

Cijonie/ CC was great! We had a lot of fun (even though the weather wasn’t gorgeous)! Thanks for all your fun facts about Philly!!
