Our guide Bill was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, pleasant and engaging. He seemed to love his job and was enthusiastic about sharing his wealth of information on the subjects covered on the tour.

Learned so much, the tour was great! It wasn't too much for my 78 year old mom, but I recommend tennis shoes.

We actually did the Franklin Footsteps Tour as the last tour of our four days in Philadelphia. It was a good summary of all the history we saw in the city and Bill, our tour guide, was well versed in that history as a 15 year veteran of the Franklin Tour.
