This tour focuses on important moments in the city's history and juxtapose it to the lives of various ethnicities. Beginning with a brief glimpse at the lives of the original inhabitants of Coaquannock (Philadelphia) followed up with the creation of William Penn's "green country towne". Jumping forward two years after Penn's arrival, we explore both slavery and it's aftermath both in and around Philadelphia. As we approach modern times we explore the circumstances and roles other ethnic communities had in creating Philadelphia.
I live off a diet of facts; each new morsel is like a slice of Grandma's apple cobbler. Did you know the first cult was formed right outside of Philadelphia? How about the first abolitionist protest being here as well? Maybe you knew that only tourists get cheesesteaks from Pat's or Geno's? No worries, if you did not know, that is why I am here. As a member of the Association of Philadelphia Tour Guides, Pennsylvania Historical Society, and a historian in training, my tour will be an equal mix of history, food, drinks, and conversation. Featuring the Olde City, William Penn, Manayunk, tastykakes, craft beer, and how to use “jawn”in a sentence, my tours are a crash course in Philadelphia wit out having to be from here.
