    2 Vegas Gals in Philly
    Jamie_B, Mar 2023
    My mom and I had a wonderful personal tour with Lois. She picked us up promptly at our Airbnb. She took us all around the city to see and do things we wanted to do like the Magic Gardens, Liberty Bell, and Pats Cheesecake. Then she took us to a few new things she thought we would enjoy and we did like most of the collages and Elfreth’s Alley. She even introduced us to this local bakery that had the best cannoli. Lois was very knowledgeable about Philly and so friendly. She even dropped us off at the museum of our choice at the end of the tour. She was worth every penny. We would highly recommend anyone that wanted a great personal tour to take this tour with Lois. Tip: The more information you provide Lois with what you want to do the more she will be able to personalize it to you and your wants.

    Great old town Philly walking tour
    Sylvia_T, May 2022
    This Philadelphia old town walking tour was one of the highlights of our Philadelphia trip. My family had never been to Philly and Lois did a wonderful job explaining the history with interesting facts. Lois was gracious and attentive to our questions. It was a wonderful experience!
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Thanks so much. Your group was such a pleasure to be with!! I'll never look at the weeds growing in the cracks of sidewalks with disdain again.!!

    We had a great tour with Lois! She was very knowledgeable, patient, and accommodating. We would definitely recommend it. We learned so many things that we never knew before. She even recommended books and other ways for us to learn more about what she told us. All of us loved the tour.
    Philly by private car and walking is the way to go!
    Ilene_S, Apr 2021
    This was a nice three hour tour. We learned a lot of the back history of William Penn and the founding of Philadelphia. Having a driver and a guide made navigating much easier in a private car. The best part was the last hour where we were driven around the city to see neighborhoods and gentrification. We would have missed a lot of architecture on our own. Lois was vivacious, animated and a good ambassador for the city.
    Lois was a great guide. ...
    Christine_B, Mar 2021
    Lois was a great guide. We walked around the city and she pointed out things I hadn't heard before. We took part of our tour by car and again went to places in and around the city I hadn't seen before. Lois was friendly and knowledgeable. She was very willing to specialize the tour to what I wanted to see. She also had good suggestions for places to see. I would highly recommend the tour. This tour would be good for couples and families since it is so adorable.
    Perfect for Us
    BillyandSandi_S, Feb 2020
    We booked a two hour tour with Lois. We ended up changing what we were doing due to wind and cold. Lois drove us to the sights we wanted to see on our own the next day. Was perfect for us.
