I didnt realize the tour would end at a different place than where it started, so that is something to keep in mind for parking, etc.

Well worth it! 12/10

This tour was a last minute decision but wow! It was one of the best I've taken in a while. Our tour guide, Britnee, really knew her stuff. She kept the tour entertaining, answered questions, allowed time for photos, and had a great volume level. We were a big group but she did excellent at both projecting her voice and speaking clearly.
Great for a nice evening outside

We walked several blocks around Independence Hall and the Liberty bell. Our guide Toni had a great sense of humor and was very enjoyable. I guess the way this was marketed I thought it would have more of a supernatural tone, but it was enjoyable anyway.
Great Tour!

We loved having Britni! She did a great job! It wants me to write more characters so I'm adding this sentence.
Sara was an awesome tour guide. I would recommend this to anyone (no children). Great job Sara. Twisted ankle and all

The George Washington Park and the information shared Was something we did not know anything about or was shared anywhere else.
Ethical Business gives an amazing first impression

I Am really impressed and greatful to Dark Philly. I had my purse stolen the afternoon before I was supposed to go on this tour with my car keys in it… and I am from NY. Needless to say, I had a crazy situation to figure out. How was I going to get home… Anyway, I reached out to let them know that wasn’t going to be in attendance and they made it easy for me to get a refund. I am very grateful. I can’t wait to come back to Philly and check this tour out and also listen to the podcast.
Good night time tour

The guide was very good, Madam Toni was a lot of fun we didn't go far but did see a lot. Different and fun way to experience the city, Madam Toni did great for such a cold windy night
Madame Toni is AMAZING.
Polly_S, Mar 2023
Definitely one of my favourite tours I’ve done - funny, informative, spooky, a little bit naughty. Madame Toni is an absolute GEM - she made this tour with her stories and sense of humour. If you only do one tour while you’re in Philly - make it this one.
Learned a lot.

Our guide, Ted, is a high school history teacher in New Jersey. Grew up in Philly, so his love of the city really shined in his presentation. Although it was a wicked cold night, he kept everyone engaged.
