My friend and I took the Revolutionary walk through the Historical Old City. Samus was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining about the history of the state and local old city district. Would recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Philadelphia. There wasn’t much walking involved. It was more standing at the different locations in a very small radius from start to finish. I felt Samus was very good in his presentation, I would have liked to seen him dressed a little more professional then T-shirt, jeans and old flannel shirt. He also made a comment at the end of the tour about “no pressure for a tip”. Which in my mind is pressure. Thank you very much.

This Revolutionary walking tour was engaging and enjoyable. Seeing some historic sight of Philadelphia, along a simple and stroller friendly walk was great. I really liked hearing the stories and fun facts of some streets, buildings and homes, which I would have otherwise walked past. I would highly recommend this tour.

I was with two of our grandsons, ages 9 and 12, and all three of us thoroughy enjoyed this tour Tessa - I THINK that was her name but sadly I'm not 100% sure - was great! She was a lot of fun and we were fascinated with all the things we were able to learn in a short amount of time. It was so much better than wandering around on our own. The length of the tour was perfect and the fact that the boys had a good time and remembered what they learned to tell their parents, is a good testament to Tessa and the tour as a whole.
