About Grim Philly Twilight Tours


Philadelphia may be known as the City of Brotherly Love, but the nation's former capital has a lot of dark secrets. On his adults-only after-hours tours, Grim Philly Twilight Tours' historian, professor, and tour leader Joe Wojie reveals the city's harrowing history.

He first introduces tour-goers to traditional tour sites, such as The Library of Congress and the home of John Adams's wig brusher, before quickly moving on to seedier locales, including the sites of whipping posts, gallows, and executions. The tours might delve into the legend of 1980s killer Gary Heidnik, the inspiration for The Silence of the Lambs' Buffalo Bill, or tell tales of the ghosts haunting City Tavern or of the pirate ghost ships roaming the dark waters of the Delaware.

Grim Philly Twilight Tours was named CityVoter's No. 1 city tour on the 2014 Philly Hot List.
