I just took the latest tour and loved it. Jen and Joe are amazing! I enjoyed learning about the hidden story behind the Logan Square area. There was so much interesting content about the square, the natural history museum, saints peter and paul, and the history of philadelphia. I totally recommend these tours to all my friends!

We booked the independence mall tour in Philly and it was just super interesting. It's a great way to explore the city and to get tons of insights from the local guides. We definitely recommend the free walking tours!

I went on the Real Philly 11am (4.5h) tour on December 31st. The tour was brilliantly and humorously guided by Jospeh who passionately told us stories and anecdotes about Philadelphia. The tour was way better than I had expected, and I highly recommend this as an activity you should do in Philly. Jospeh did an awesome job! He is a... More

Free walking tours are rather hit or miss depending on the guide but Jen is definitely a hit. Her passion and insider knowledge as a Philadelphian/NJ made this almost-3h tour worth it in the cold (although I thought it was quite warm but I'm Canadian). Her experience showed as she explained and broke down America's very complex history into pleasant... More

Jen did a wonderful job demonstrating a strong knowledge of her city's with great passion on a very cold day. She took great care of our group, continued to find us warm places to shelter us from the cold but the weather didn't diminish her passion. Great job Jen! Thanks so much... Nat and Mark

We only had 1 full day in Philadelphia, so we decided to book a walking tour with free tours by foot. We booked the Independence Mall Tour. Our tour guide was energetic, funny and very informative about the history of Philadelphia. We loved the tour and it was a fantastic day to see the city of brotherly love.

This tour was informative and entertaining! Joseph had easy and clear instructions on where to meet and when, and then energetically and very enthusiastically provided our group with the history and tales of Philadelphia on our walking tour. Put on more warm clothes than you think you will need, and take this tour now!

This was a great experience. Our guide, Jenn, was enthusiastic, energetic, very knowledgeable and a great storyteller. We will look for this option again in other cities.

We have lived in Philadelphia suburbs all of our lives, and traditionally take the cousins to a Philadelphia landmark the day after Thanksgiving. This tour was probably our favorite over the past 8 years. Our guide was informative and showed us sites we would normally just walk on by. The cousins ranged from ages 13 to 21 and talked about...

A good tour should leave you feeling good in the hours and days afterwards. The Philly Independence Mall tour was just such an experience. Marianne took us through key sites relating to the early history of Philly, all the while keeping the group well organized. I don't mind if tours go in depth on history, but I sometimes feel sorry...
