What People Say

— Sydney C.

"The tour was the highlight of our trip! WOW! Joey is so knowledgeable and passionate about Philly, its history, and making sure that he is sharing lesser-known stories. I appreciated learning about the unique and powerful women, people of color, and LGBTQ folks that have made their mark on the city. "
