One star is too generous but unfortunately no stars isn't an option. Extremely disappointed: guide was late, we only went to two different spots, misinformation provided by guide. Would not recommend at all!

We previously attended the Christmas tavern tour and had a blast, so when we saw a deal for the Valentine's tour we jumped on it. This tour started at Han Dynasty, and the acoustics of the room we were in was so bad we could barely understand what our guide was saying. We also stayed at Han Dynasty for a majority of the tour because there was a large Mardi Gras pub crawl going on and that crowd overwhelmed our stops. I feel like if a large event is going on that is going to cause a disturbance to the tour itinerary, they should not schedule a tour for that time. I'm giving 3 stars because we didn't enjoy this specific tour, but our previous experience was wonderful.

I had a horrible experience with this company. I purchased a groupon for a Valentine's themed tour through groupon. Once I purchased this groupon I was instructed to go to the Philly Grimm Tour web site and enter the redemption code from my voucher. After I entered this info the website stated that it was an invalid code. I called the Philly Grimm Tours numerous times through out the day with absolutely no response. The phone just rings and rings ( no machine). After this I decided I would email still no response. I finally got in touch with someone (PAT) who could not help me either. She said she didn't know what the problem was. There was no attempt at all to remedy the situation. She told me I would need to call the main office. She gave me another number for which no one answered. After spending most of my afternoon trying to give them the benefit of the doubt I finally went through Groupon to get a refund. I will never again purchase anything from Philly Grimm Tours. Horrible company!!!! Absolutely the worst customer service I have ever experienced. It is a shame because my boyfriend and I would have really enjoyed the tours that they have to offer. I purchased this groupon to see what these tours were all about with the hopes of enjoying them and purchasing full price tickets for other tours. They have lost my business and I will tell everyone not to purchase these tours!

From Our Editors

Though Philadelphia has ceded its place as the capital of the United States to Washington, DC, it remains a bustling metropolis rich with American history. Grim Philly's tour guides—all of whom have at least a bachelor's degree in history—dredge up past centuries' landmark events, scandals, ghosts, and colonial pirates, on walking tours that have made the Philly Hot List four years in a row. Tour-goers can witness the sites where Benjamin Franklin conducted his electrical experiments, or see the film set where _National Treasure_'s Benjamin Franklin Gates orchestrated one of the great fictional heists in American history. The guides' narration illuminates the flip side of American history by blending historical facts and local insight while making stops at shadowy spots such as a theater that was once a mecca for ladies of the night, the site of the city's first bank robbery, or historic watering holes.
