"I took the walking tour and loved it. Ghost stories of haunted sightings are numerous, and the historical tie-ins by the guides are thought-provoking. Your guide will have you darting in and out of unique locations. Simply put, these people are experts at what they do." - Philadelphia Day Trips Examiner
