We had a great time and Mike was full of information! Would definitely do it again

I took the vampires, ghost and sex tour. Heavy on the sex which was both entertaining and informational. Our guide knew so much about the history of Philadelphia and I was throughly impressed by all the knowledge she shared. I wish the tour was a tad more eery but the walk itself ended up creeping us out. Great time!

My boyfriend and I recently took Grim Philly's prohibition bar crawl. Our tour guide/lecturer was Joe. Joe was awesome! He brought snacks and drinks for us all and was very enthused with the historical aspect of the tour. I've taken tours of Philly in the best and left this crawl with new information I have never learned before! Joe kept everything fast paced and geared towards his audience. Unfortunately, we were caught in a heavy downpour and thunderstorm which threw us off track a little, but was completely out of Joes control. Highly recommend and take Joe!

Grim Philly provided a historically accurate and entertaining walking tour. My wife and I have taken many walking tours in different cities and this was, by far, one of our favorites. Ted (our tour guide) was engaging, exuberant and just flat out hysterical. You can easily tell that he loves the subject matter, as he blankets you with a flood of information in such an entertaining manner that you can't help but mesmerized. Thank you Ted and Grim Philly! Looking forward to Halloween!!!

Don't waste your $$ on those other boring tours take a tour with Joe....he's irreverent and funny with a huge amount of very interesting history that you won't get on those other tours. You'll be glad you did!

Honestly I took my girlfriend on a surprise date night and didn't really know what to expect. Ted was amazing, he was very knowledgeable about each topic he spoke on and answered all our questions, plus he made the tour a great experience with his stories and anecdotes.
We would definitely take another tour, we're really interested in the Serial killer one.
Amazing job all around, from the guide to the bars and memorials that were involved.

We went on a tour Friday night with Ted as our guide. He was absolutely terrific and super knowledgeable, we learned a lot of really interesting facts. It was a cold rainy night but we still had so much fun. Ted recommended some great bars to check out near the end of the tour which was very helpful. Definitely check out this tour if you're in philly, you won't be disappointed!
