I was thoroughly delighted with my 4 hour personally developed Philadelphia tour given to me by Reid. I may be relocating to PHL and don't know the city at all. I asked Reid to develop a 4 hour 360-degree/in-depth tour for me that combined an initial round-the-city overview followed by in-depth experiences in many of the neighborhoods that I would consider living. I asked Reid to also include as many facts and points of interest to give the city more meaning and depth. Reid out-performed! Well done!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words. This tour was way out of my "comfort zone" but I'm glad you got out of it what you needed.

An absolute 5 rating! Would give him 7 stars if that were possible. Very knowledgeable about history and architecture in old town Philadelphia. Customized tour to our specific interests. Great ability to weave together facts into a narrative that is understandable, interesting and fun. No commercialism here - just real passion and knowledge. Eagerly looking forward to our next tour in Philadelphia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alexa, Thanks so much and thanks for sharing some of Mother's Day with me. You have a great house, welcome to the neighborhood! I also thought that the Historic designation on your town house may have required records/info on your house to be submitted, so you might try them as well. Again thanks so much. Reid
My husband and I really enjoyed our three hour private walking tour of Old City Philadelphia with Reid. Reid was very knowledgeable and was able to seamlessly combine his knowledge of the architecture of the periods with the historical figures that lived during such periods. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed our time together. I also hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here.

Reid wove together the history, the times, the architecture, the way of life, and humor to create a very informative, interesting, and fun tour. I have been on other tours of Old City in the past and this is the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words. I always strive to be the best and I'm glad it comes through in my tours. I hope you enjoyed lunch and had enough energy for your afternoon mural tour. Thanks again for walking with me.

What a wonderful tour we had with Reid! His architecture tour was excellent! We had also asked for information on Benjamin Franklin and Alexander Hamilton. Reid gave us so much more! His energetic and informative tour made us feel we were in the Revolutionary times. He gave us a guide of what and where we were going, pointing out significant details of buildings that made our country. We have been on many Tours By Locals. My husband and I agree Reid's tour is one of the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! I'm blushing reading this. Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It's nice to know that all of my efforts show through in the tour. Enjoy the rest of your stay here in Philadelphia.

Reid Addis is a superb guide and a considerate gentleman who gave my wife and I a personal wonderful tour of the Old City and Society Hill. He kindly met us at the station, assisted us with our baggage, as we stopped off for 4hrs on our way back to England.The tour was a good balance between the historical and architectural aspects, not rushed and very informative.He kindly returned with us to the station, providing information along the way. Thank you Reid. You are a great guide and well recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow. I'm blushing! Thanks for spending an afternoon in Philly with me!

Thank you for a great tour! Reid is a great Guide and after the tour I feel I learnt much more than what I expected. His knowledge in architecture is amazing but also the way that the tour goes, together with the pictures and information that he prepares in order to illustrate different perspectives on the city features and buildings, makes it really enjoyable and highly recommended if you are curious about the past and present of Philly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words. It is always good to know that all the effort I put into making the tours fun and informative comes through to my clients. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time here in Philly with me!
Reid is a great tour guide. We got a lot information for history and new knowledge for architecture. Really enjoy the time in Philadelphia!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Doris, Thank you so very much for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed your time with me here in Philly, AND I hope you all had time to shop! Reid
We chose our tour guide, Reid A, because of his expertise in architecture." Reid's depth of knowledge and delight in Philadelphia's history brought that time period to life for us. We particularly enjoyed learning about prominent 19th century architects by seeing many example of buildings they had designed from Centre Square, Rittenhouse Square, Pennsylvania University and West Philadelphia. Reid's enthusiasm for Philadelphia is contagious!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Paul, Thanks so much for your kind words. I enjoyed my time with you and Karen yesterday. So many thought provoking questions like where did people keep their horses and carriages if they did not have a separate carriage house. Lots for me to investigate. I hope I did not wear you and Karen out. Thanks again.

Our experience with Reid today in Philly was excellent! He was terrific with our 3 young grandchildren!!! Many thanks for helping to arrange!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lynn, Thanks for your kind words! You must have been exhausted that night as your grand children had so much energy. I hope you got back safely to New York, and I hope the grand kids will have a few fond memories of the time spent here. Reid

Reid is a most knowledgable and personable guide. We learned much about the history of Philadelphia, and saw a lot of wonderful architecture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Chris. Next time I will make sure to ask IF the traveler wants to visit Independence Hall. That way I can try to get a ticket first thing in the morning.
