What You'll Get


A haunted house is born from a past tragedy, be it a grisly murder, a mysterious disappearance, or a long-forgotten bologna sandwich buried beneath the floorboards. Sign on for a spooky tour of an eerily cursed residence with today's Groupon to Grim Philly twilight tours in Philadelphia. Choose between the following options:

  • For $8, you get one ticket (up to a $16.99 value, depending on the tour time).
  • For $16, you get two tickets (up to a $33.98 value, depending on the tour time).


Led by Rider University history professor Joe Wojie, Grim Philly tour groups trek to more than two-dozen historical sites to unearth the city’s creepiest legends. Each 90-minute walking tour begins at twilight outside the Independence Visitor Center and ends near City Tavern, where Washington spooked Jefferson with his glow-in-the-dark wig. Ghost hunters tiptoe over unmarked graves buried beneath the sidewalks, listening for shrieks as Wojie describes the colonial gallows. Banshee librarians shush the crowd as the tour shuffles past the Library of Congress. Specter seekers also venture to Independence Hall and the homes of founding fathers, shivering as Wojie explains how Blackbeard haunts the Delaware with Cap’n Crunch’s evil twin.

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.
