What People Say

— Elizabeth M. 

What a fantastic experience! Joey was so knowledgeable and personable, and I feel like I really got a sense of how LGBT history is intertwined with the larger history of Philadelphia-- it was worth every penny, and I would have been happy to spend another two hours picking his brain about the city's past. I'm just sad that I don't have time to do more tours with this company before my departure!
