    thought Nate was an excellent tour guide. I was very disappointed that we could not gain entry to Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross House and the Ben Franklin house. I had called your customer service to inquire if the entrance fees were paid on our behalf . The advertising Iis very ambiguous stating that " ALL of the buildings are included " or something to that effect . The customer service rep was really hesitant in his reply but assured me that we could go into all of the buildings. Well, technically yes, if you pay a separate fee. I would suggest you clarify your advertising to indicate that only "Free of Charge" buildings will be available for entrance on this tour. I will be notifying Trip Advisor of my observations.

    My friend Julie and I had a wonderful experience with our guide, Howard. He invited us into a conversation about Colonial Philadelphia. Howard is an engaging speaker and is obviously passionate about his city and its vibrant history. I would recommend this walking tour to anyone. The pace was perfect and the information was presented in an entertaining and engaging manner.
