Great introduction to Philly

We took this tour during a recent cold snap and it was rainy, cold, and generally miserable. None of that mattered because the guide and tour were that awesome. It was a great tour to fill in historical details that you don't get just walking around looking at the buildings and statues.

I was my first tour in Philadelphia. It was a good way to start my visit in Philadelphia. The guide was well versed, and interesting. We covered a reasonable amount of territory at a reasonable pace. I wish he would have waited to speak until all participants were present. At times he would start speaking before all caught up. It was still an excellent experience.
