Adam was amazing his knowledge of the history of the area really made our trip enjoyable. Our 17 year old son is a history buff and he and Adam had this great conversation. So much better than just having to read and listen too the standard recording. History really came alive!

Our guide Adam was just great! The four-hour sightseeing tour of Philadelphia was very entertaining and very interesting. Because of his master's degree in American history, he wasn't at a loss for an answer. We really enjoyed the tour.

Owen was very knowledgeable. He also was courteous with ensuring we were safe on entering and exiting the vehicle each time. He was open to accommodating our interests. Finally, he was patient with our young learners. Thank you!
