    My tour today with Mina/Mena was absolutely amazing and wonderful!! I wish I remembered to tip her or offer her some sort of gratuity because she absolutely deserves it. I was caught off guard bc my party wanted to leave the tour early bc of today’s AWFUL weather in Philly. I was drenched!! But Mina was so knowledgeable and experienced and taught us so much about our area in Philly and the History!! She was such a delight and a cool tour guide!! Thank you once again for your time and efforts, Mina !! I am again sorry I couldn’t thank you enough!!!

    Joshua was cheerful and knowledgeable. He had lots of historical trivia which we all like. Obviously has been doing this for a while. Wish we had booked a longer tour now. We are a family of 5 with 3 teens who can sometimes be difficult to entertain. Dad is a history major/enthusiast.

    The tour guide was timely and very respectful of others’ times. A great amount of history was communicated in a very easy way to understand and follow. This is not my first time visiting Philadelphia but the first time I learned so much about it. The two hours went by flying. Inexpensive and fun.
