My husband and I signed up for this tour just a few hours before it started and it was the best decision we made. The start location was easy to find which just set the tone. Tim and Casey were the two tour guides. We broke into two groups, each group consisted of about 19 people of varied ages. We had Casey as our tour guide and he was excellent! Very knowledgeable as he is a history teacher by day. He made everything interesting and interactive. His sense of humor was not lost on us either. He also offered recommendations of local spots upon request. Overall, the tour flew by as we learned lots about Philly and we were so glad we took this tour. We highly recommend this touring company!
