Explore the darker side of Philadelphia on our Ghost Tour!

Philadelphia may be the Cradle of Liberty, but it's also a city thick in the gruesome tales of the past. Join us on a two hour stroll where we'll visit sites and hear haunting stories including mass graves, burnt bridges and vengeful Red Coats. The tour begins outside the Betsy Ross House and ends at Washington Square. All but three tour stops have spots for guests to sit down. 

Since this is mainly an outside tour, masks are optional but remember to stay socially distanced from others on the tour. Some stops will include entering buildings. You may wait outside if desired.  There will be many stops along the tour route that will be outside. We will meet promptly in front of The Betsy Ross House at 239 Arch Street. Our guide, Jen, will be wearing a bright orange backpack. The tour will take place rain or shine!
