Choose Between Two Options

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 a light serving of food and beer samples at Triumph Brewing Company. The cost of the tour includes the lunch and beer, as well as admission to a burial ground and Christ Church. Click here for a full schedule of upcoming tours.

Grim Philly

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.

Loved our tour! Ted was a great guide. We learned so much about the history of Philadelphia, the founding of our country and of course some local Serial Killers. A great way to spend an afternoon.
