My Mom and I took Mark's tour on a weekend in Philadelphia to learn a little bit about the area. We wanted to do one of the free tours as feel it is often better when a tour guide has to "earn their tips" and Mark did not disappoint! We selected his tour based on the good reviews and the fact that he was a native who started his own Company. We easily signed up online and received a confirmation email and we received another confirmation email the night before. Mark was there waiting when we arrived and it was easy to find him. We waited about 5 minutes for anyone else to show up but everyone else had cancelled without notice, so it was just the two of us and Mark. Despite working for tips, Mark didn't show the least bit upset about the no shows and said he likes the small tours. The tour itself was about an hour and half and Mark shared a lot of information, as well as answered questions, and gave recommendations. He clearly loves the city and also has an interest in it's history. I would highly recommend to anyone, although it might be a bit much for small children.
