In this unique tour, adventurers are guided past Independence Hall, the Library of Congress, and two dozen other sites. The tour starts with a core of traditional stories from the founding fathers and quickly moves to Philly’s seediest tales of whipping posts, gallows, and red light district; hauntings such as that of the City Tavern and pirate ghost ships that sail the Delaware, and more!

Grim Philly Twilight Tours
Voted Best City Tour each year since inception and the only Philadelphia tour featured on Anthony Bourdain's "The Layover" on the Travel Channel - Grim Philly has amassed a cult following with educational, gritty, adults-only tours on serial killers, vampires, sex, aphrodisiacs, ghost hunting, grave robbing, gangsters, 1920's speakeasies, pirates, the Jersey Devil, and other dark subjects. We cover the seedy underbelly of Philadelphia's history! Developed by a university professor, Grim Philly presents sensational, yet meticulously researched, material delivered in irreverent style by college professors, published authors, and other professionals. Though each Grim guide has his or her own style and area of expertise - the tours are raw, uncensored, and not suitable for children or those of prudish disposition. Grim Philly has several tours - including walking, tavern, and boat tours.
