Tim & Abbie

Our founder Tim was an English teacher who picked up a tour guide gig during his summers off. He quickly fell in love with the city, the people, and the stories. Tim decided to start his own company in 2015 to offer people the best tour in the city. You'll find him and his wife, Abbie, on the trolley and on the streets of Philly showing off the city they love.


Not your typical tour

"We took the BYOB Hysterical History tour and we were not disappointed. The tour guide and company owner is very enthusiastic and passionate about Philadelphia and it's history. We learned some interesting facts that I had not heard on previous tours. I would recommend the BYOB tour to anyone who wants to relax and really take in the sights while getting a little education."

"This was a fun walking tour around old city with lots of little historical tidbits of information and a few jokes thrown in for good measure. Tim, our guide, was insightful, accommodating and pleasant and took us to several places "off the beaten path". Well worth the time and money! There was something for everyone-even our 6 year old!"

Awesome tour!

"The Founding Footsteps BYOB tour was amazing - great historical facts and tons of fun. Perfect thing to do on a rainy Labor Day weekend!"


Great amount of info and history, detailed stories, jokes galore + 2 bathroom stops :)

"Tim was awesome! Tons of information about the city, it's history, cool stories, as much information that a brain could possibly take in in a 3 hour period....plus a chance to ask questions. Did I mention 2 bathroom stops??? That was amazing, but not as great as Tim's corny jokes that I will have so much fun retelling my mom :) I laughed out loud multiple times. Thanks again Tim! You are doing so much for the community, WAY TO GO!"
