We had a wonderful morning with Tish. She was extremely knowledgeable and did an excellent job in engaging my 5 grandchildren - ages 6-14- in a conversation about the history of Philadelphia.
just what we wanted; very educational
Reid was FANTASTIC! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent exploring and learning about Philadelphia history and architecture with Reid as our guide. We started at Elfreth's Alley, which set the tone for and was a perfect introduction to the history and architectural styles and details we continued to see throughout the tour. Reid's breadth of knowledge was only matched by his vivid story telling, which really made the tour come alive for us - learning about the stories within the walls! We highly recommend Reid as a tour guide - don't hesitate to book!
