“You can’t go wrong with this tour!  David talks about the founding fathers like he went to college with them!  I mentioned I liked the stories about the unsung heroes and he focused on those characters in history.  I will suggest this tour to everyone who goes to Philly.  They have a true passion for history and bringing it to life for those who come and visit.  He also was conscientious of our lives and interested in who we were.

If you want a lively educational tour in Philly, Bowtie tours is the only choice!”
