Tim was an amazing tour guide. We had our three children with us and all of them enjoyed the historical tour as did the adults. Tim was friendly, humorous, knowledgeable, seemed to have a deep love of Philly and history, and sent us to a great pizza place. We are history buffs and he allowed us to ask as many questions as we had and even tailored house your with additional information based on questions we had. 10/10, I wanted to keep on going.

Amazing tour! My wife and I went to grad school many years ago in Philadelphia and are so glad we finally had this opportunity to take a walking historical tour. Our tour guide was fantastic, so knowledgeable and so many great anecdotes of our founding fathers! We can’t wait to do another Founding Footsteps tour in the future!
