Thank you Tripadvisor for highlighting this tour. Bevan took us on a tour of the old city in Philly and my husband and I had a blast. He was informative and fun and you can tell extremely passionate about sharing Philly's history. I highly recommend visitors to take the tour.

We did the Independence Mall Tour with Bevan on a Saturday morning. It was a great tour. Didn't start too early, but early enough to leave us with the rest of the day to do other things. Two hours was long enough to cover all the hot spots and not get bored. Bevan was a great tour guide! He was very informative and even cracked a few jokes. My favorite was when he was talking about Jefferson writing the Declaration of Independence, and that it was like a breakup letter to England: "...They had other colonies on the side." Great system with the pay as much as you think it was worth. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Philly.

We were very pleased that we had the opportunity to be part of the Free Tours by Foot experience in Philadelphia. It was easy to find both the starting location and red headed Jenn, our enthusiastic guide!

We really enjoyed the tour which included a wealth of information, interesting sights and sounds of the area, and lots of facts and anecdotes provided by our guide. The time flew by, and we were amazed when we looked at our watches that we had actually been going for almost 2 1/2 hours! The group was small, but very diverse, so it was fun to hear the comments and questions from everyone.

We would recommend any of these tours to others (We've done 3 in New York City and loved all of those as well.) and hope to return to Philly for another excellent experience with Free Tours by Foot.

Jenn was an amazing guide with so much history knowledge and great food recommendations. The food was so cheap and fun to share with my friends on the the tour. Ending the tour at a sitdown restaurant trying many different appetizers was a perfect ending. We even were treated to an impromptu Chinese church tour by a church deacon walking by our tour. This is my second Free Tour by Foot ( did the Real Philadelphia tour last summer) Highly rec. any of them.

I did the Real Philadelphia Tour which is a 4 hour tour covering a lot of the culture, food and history of Philadelphia. Jenn our guide was very passionate about the city and the content she shared was both insightful and pitched at just the right level for me.

I especially liked the pitt stops along the tour to pick up snacks, food and drinks at the Italian Market, and other places we spotted on the route.

TIP - show up early there is a lot to cover and they mean what they say when they leave one time!
