It was a great experience, really interactive and fun to learn and have a good time. The Speaker was knowledgeable but made it more than just a lecture

We did the Vampire, Sex & ghost tour. Ted was very engaging, knowledgable and funny. I would do another Grim Philly tour. We absolutely loved it.

About Grim Philly Twilight Tours


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.
