I was initially worried about taking a walking tour (I am very out of shape), but it ended up being a really nice pace. Kane is an awesome guide and made sure we had plenty of time to really look at things along the way. He mentioned a few nearby places to eat and shop as we were close to them, and added in several other tidbits about the city.

Definite must-do in any city! I had been to Philly a few times before, but the guide took us to some great hidden gems, was super friendly and informative, and had great beer recommendations.

Our guide, Cheyenne, was excellent. She was very informative about the history of each location, and was funny, engaging, and made the evening thoroughly enjoyable.

our guide Marc was excellent. He was very informative and a great speaker. very helpful to everyone that was on the tour. Highly recommended this tour.
