Guide nit very knowledgeable
, Aug 2019
I have don’t so many historical walking tours all over Europe and the US and I’m sad to say this was by far the most disappointing. There was no really interesting information provided and when asking questions the guide would say I have no idea. The guide asked for tips and good ratings throughout the tour. In fact it was one of the first things he said to the group when he arrived 15 minutes late for the tour. He was a nice person but just a terrible guide. Cheesesteak at the end was amazing though. Guide did not oversee the ordering and disappeared before we got our food. Even though the tour included the cheesesteaks I guess he did not communicate this to the restaurant. The owner ended up comping our sandwiches. Would recommend this tour with a knowledgeable guide.
Fun Tour!

I recently took the 1776 History and Cheesesteak Tour, and really enjoyed it. Terry was a great guide, who regaled me with many interesting stories that somehow never made it into the history books. Even though I was the only participant (and it rained throughout the majority of the tour), I had fun, learned some interesting facts I hadn't previously known (and I'm a former history teacher!), and really enjoyed my delicious cheesesteak at the culmination of the tour. If you're looking to hear off-beat, behind-the scenes stories about our Nation's founding - and indulge in one of Philly's iconic foods - then take this tour!
