    Unforgettable historical tour.
    Genevieve_P, Mar 2023
    The entire trip. Art guide Jim was amazing, very knowledgeable and friendly. My friend Nancy and I would recommend Jim for this trip. he went above and beyond his duties, dropping us off where we want it to be at the end of the trip.

    Thank you for this great review! We hope you come back to Philly to take our other public driving tours out to Amish Country and to stunning Longwood Gardens!
    Tour was amazing

    Dale was the best tour guide. He helped us figure out how to get to another two or later in the day. He had lots of information about Philadelphia and Valley Forge. Highly recommend!
    Awesome tour and our tour...

    Thank you Justin for this awesome review! And for recommending this tour to others. Valley Forge is an incredible place; an amazing story set amidst the bucolic countryside outside of Philly.
    Excellent Valley Forge tour
    Marvin_Z, Nov 2022
    Tour guide was excellent. Only 2 of us were there so had a very personalized experience. Guide was very well informed about area and about philadelphia in general.

    Thank you Marvin! We run our public Valley Forge tour regardless of the group size, so sometimes it will just be you and your colleagues on the tour, which does indeed make for a personalized experience. But truth be told, a site like Valley Forge is a wonderful place to visit regardless of group size. Incredible history and breathtaking scenery. A perfect combo!

    Our tour guide James was great. Not only did he have extensive knowledge about Valley Forge but other aspects of American history as well.
    Tom was a fantastic guide...
    Bryan_H, Oct 2022
    Tom was a fantastic guide and storyteller. Recommend any tour of which he is a part. We saw everything we needed and wanted to see at Valley Forge.
    Great tour for the value
    Julie_C, Oct 2022
    To begin with, the guide was prompt and kept us moving through the Valley Forge tour at a reasonable pace. He, Dale, gave a running narration about the city, the surrounding areas and geography leading up to VF and at Valley Forge. He really made it relatable and gave a sequential rendition of this historical event. His tour included time at the visitor center watching a great overview video and many stops at key locations to the event. The entire tour was fantastic.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Thank you Julie! There is a lot to talk about at Valley Forge, but our guides present it in a way that is anything but a lecture. It's a discussion. It's a way to immerse yourself in the surroundings and lets you imagine the difficulties faced by those troops in that harrowing winter. We are thrilled that you got so much out of it.
    Hope you get Tom for a tour guide.

    Tom knows history. He answered every question I had. He took the time to find out where my ancestor, who died there, was camped and I was able to take pictures of it. A great experience and I would take a tour with him again. Thanks
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Tom certainly knows history, as do all of our guides. And they love to go above and beyond to increase a guest's connection with the site. That is amazing that you got to discover where your ancestor camped at Valley Forge! What an experience.
    Very interesting! Guide...
    MK_T, Oct 2022
    Very interesting! Guide Tom was excellent and I would certainly recommend him. However, I was sorry local Ventures company did not call me back when we had questions about actual tour.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Thank you for leaving this review. I am sorry we did not properly communicate with you before the tour. We appreciate you sticking with us and recommending this tour to others.
    Tom extraordinarily good!
    MaryR_D, Sep 2022
    Tom was our guide and he was perfection! Exactly what a guide should be. He answered every question I asked and had seemingly limitless knowledge of not only Valley Forge but also surrounding history.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Thank you Mary! That is a wonderful review, and encapsulates what Tom, and the rest of our guides, brings to the table each and every time they go out on tour.

    Worthwhile Valley Forge tour
    Tawnya_N, Aug 2022
    Adam was a great tour guide. Very personable and so knowledgeable. He answered all questions in a way that led to further discussion and conversation. I could tell he enjoyed telling us about the lesser known figures that had a key role at Valley Forge.
    Kellie_C, Aug 2022
    Adam, our tour guide, was perfectly amazing. Outstanding tour. He was extremely knowledgeable & very professional.
    A pure History lesson of our Independence.
    Patrick_H, Aug 2022
    The whole tour was memorable!!! The guide was extremely knowledgeable and answered all questions we had. The ride there and back to Philly was beautiful and the guide went out of his away to show us extra Landmarks. Thanks to our guide Rick Heimann who once again gave us the History Tour of our Lives about our Country’s Independence.
    Valley Forge Experience.
