“History In HD Tour--Amazing!!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Whether you're a local, or just visiting the city, this tour is sure to give you your moneys worth, and then some!! Our tour guide Chris was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. Not to mention how entertaining he made the tour. The tour group was relatively small (6 ppl) which made it THAT much better. A lot of the other tour companies around seemed to try to squeeze as many people as they can into one tour. But with our smaller group, UrbanAdventures makes it easier to engage the tour guide with any questions we had. Also, there is a complimentary beer at the end where Chris hung around for a bit to answer any other questions and gave recommendations to amazing restaurants, bars, other landmarks, etc. A+++ Tour.

My advice: Do the tour!!!! If you can get Chris, you will learn lots, and he's not boring.

Thanks Chris

“Italian Market”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Today we had an excellent tour of the Italian Market with Nina our tour guide. If you are looking for a tour of the best cheeses, olive oil, spices, candy and more I highly recommend this tour. We came home with an insider's view of South Philly along with bags filled with fine cheeses, spices, bread, jerky, candy, and prosciutto. A fun time was had by all.

“Philadelphia Walking Tour”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I enjoyed a terrific walking tour around the historic area of Philadelphia, led by our very friendly and knowledgeable guide, Nina. For just over two hours, Nina took us to significant landmarks, and backed it up with excellent commentary. It was a hot day, so the complimentary beer at the end of the tour was well appreciated. Thank you Nina.

“FABULOUS tour of Italian Market”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We had a fantastic tour with Nina for a few hours in the Italian Market. She was fun and knowledgeable and helpful and we really enjoyed it a lot. Had a good variety, got to meet people who have carried on the family business for generations, plus got a "taste" of other cultures now moving into the area.
HIGHLY recommend it!

“Great walking tour of Philly with josh”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

With our teenage son we took a tour of Center city to discover the architecture the different neighborhoods and lesser known sites off the major historical sites. Josh was knowledgable and entertaining during the tour. He got us into buildings to see the beautiful Philly skyline. We did do a lot walking and covered a lot different neighborhoods. We all had a great experience and would recommend this touring company
