Great Experience for the Macabre History Nerds
Courtney_G

We did two tours with Grim Philly on our trip (this one and a Dark Philly adults only night tour). Ted was our guide for both of them. He was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and easy to get along with. He also tweaked the tour to our interests when possible. My husband is interested in history and I’m into the macabre and these tours fit the bill to keep us both entertained. I’d recommend these tours to anyone who is interested in the darker side of history and isn’t offended easily. My only complaint is a minor one but the tours did not end where they started. But like I said that was just a minor inconvenience. Still good to know before you book which is why I’m including it. Looking forward to checking out their podcast and so glad we found these tours to check out.

Ted gave a really great tour. Very knowledgeable and interesting. He knew the answers to most questions and when he did not, he just said so. The tour ran well over 2 hours and I really felt we all got our money’s worth.

Loved this tour! It was a really fun mix of serial killer lore and philadelphia history. Our tour guide Ted was incredible and an amazing storyteller. Would absolutely go again. We learned so much and now definitely have a few new favorite serial killers to learn more about.

Yes was fantastic. Really knows his his history and serial killers. I loved the mixture of the stories about major historic landmarks as well as information on serial killers known to the area. It was a great way for us to see major areas of the city while getting some unique stories about the darker side of Philly.

Our guide, Ted, was knowledgeable and personable. He is obviously experienced and has a personal interest in both serial killers and history. The actual walk was probably less than one mile while the pace of the "lecture" was brisk. TV-MA so not for the little ones, but my 14 and 18 year old children were fine.

Ted was very informative and has a great sense of humor. Looking foward to booking another tour with him.

I learned so much on this tour! Ted was very knowledgeable and was great at answer questions. The only bummer is that with the snow and pandemic, some locations on the tour we could not go into. But the route and the tour guide were great! I would definitely go on a different tour with this company.

We had an excellent experience on our tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Philadelphia. Highly recommend. I realized afterward we didn’t get the complimentary drink mentioned but they may be due to COVID. Still ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Ted was amazing! I honestly wasn't sure what to expect because sometimes types can be cheesy. Not only was it interesting, Ted made it really enjoyable. I think if I had anyone else as my tour guide I would have been enjoyed it and left it at that. My friend and I plan on trying other tourd in the future and will be looking to request a tour with Ted.

Cool tour, lots of history facts included. The guides are super knowledgeable, you get to see lots of historic places. Grave yard tour is the best part.
