  • "We had Tim as our guide, he struck a great mix of cracking jokes and making history, which can sometimes be dry and dull, really interesting and exciting. I have lived in Philly for 8 years and went on this tour with my family, and I was amazing at how much I learned as someone who has walked by most of these buildings everyday." -E.H., Philadelphia
  • "We loved this tour of Old City Philadelphia. Tim is a fantastic tour guide and he made it so much fun. We covered a LOT of ground, but at a pace that worked just fine for our group. In addition to all the amazing facts Tim added wonderful humor which kept us all listening closely and laughing a lot! Highly recommended!" -Mary S, Colorado
