The ghosts of Philadelphia: learn about the city's gruesome past

This was my first time trying Amazon Explore.  It was so much fun and engaging, the 90 minutes seemed to fly by.

Thank goodness my tour was from the comfort of my couch because it was rainy and windy Philly. night (tour started at 7PM). My guide braved the elements with a smile and never skipped a beat. She was very knowledgeable, well spoken, funny, and very personable.

Although my tour was scheduled as a group, I was the only person that showed. Up to 7 people can join a tour. Normally everyone is muted, and you can click the hand icon if you have a question and your guide will stop the narrative and respond to your question. Since it was only me and my guide, we had an open mic and chatted more freely. We even exchanged ghost stories.

Although I spent a lot of my childhood in Jersey, right outside Philly, this 90 minute tour was very informative especially if you like history and eerie tales of the unexplained. It's the things you won't learn in history class.

Philadelphia is a great place to visit! If you haven't already, nothing beats actually being there BUT this tour is a great alternative and much better than a video or photos someone took. Speaking of photos, there is a photo button on the screen and you can take as many photos as you'd like. If you are lucky you just might catch the image of an apparition in your photo. Below are a few of the scenes that I captured.

I have 3 more tours booked so look for more reviews coming soon:

(1) Gaudi and Modernism: a journey through Barcelona's breath-taking architecture

(2) A ghostly walk through the haunted streets of Prague

(3) Uncover the Haunted History of Chicago
