In this adult-rated tour, a university professor leads tour-goers past historic Philadelphia sites, such as City Tavern and Independence Hall while sharing chilling tales and searching for paranormal activity in places like Walnut Street Prison, Surgeon’s Hall, and George Washington’s home. Departing from the Independence Visitor Center at 7 p.m., each tour lasts a little more than 90 minutes.
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 pirates, on walking tours that have made the Philly Hot List three years in a row. Their narration blends 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.

“i've lived in philly all of my life - done all the standard historic tours. grim philly was a great way to see the city from a different view. one recommendation would be to send everyone home with the names and addresses of all the locations we visited and even those mentioned so that customers could come back to see something again if they wanted. a proabition site was mentioned that i thought wow i would really like to go there one evening when i'm looking for something fun and interesting to do, but as soon as the tour moved on i forgot what it was called”
