James was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. My son really enjoyed it also. He was retelling the stories to his friends that James told on our walk.

Our whole family, including 9 and 13 year old girls, really enjoyed the tour. It was a good mix of well known and more obscure history with paranormal storytelling that kept everyone interested. You get to hear about famous heroes and villains and their appearances at Old City landmarks. Our guide, James, was enthusiastic and engaging. My only disappointment was I couldn’t see Kosciusko’s ghost, but spirits are tricky like that.

I cannot testify to the quality of the tour itself. We didn’t attend during the thunderstorm that was going on during our tour time. Didn’t see anything about rain, lightning, National Weather Service warnings, or shine on our ticket but tried calling the number provided and emailed as instructed about an hour before the meet up time. No reply before the tour time. Our tour guide texted after the fact. Hope he got our money and wasn’t depending on our tip. Perhaps we overlooked the warning somewhere on the website but at least cover that in your recording designed to avoid actually speaking to your customers.
