A trio of historians immerses visitors in the macabre corners of the city, visiting spots once strewn with blood from gangster assassinations and crimes committed by serial killers such as H.H. Holmes and the Frankford Slasher. After the tour, sightseers stop for refreshments at a local watering hole. The cost of the tour includes a beverage and admission to Christ Church and its burial ground. Tours take place from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
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”
