It’s back! If you’re looking for another spooky adventure, then consider Philly’s most popular BYOB trolley tour. Founding Footsteps (Home of the “Tipsy Trolley” and “The Original Philly Holiday Light Tour) is set to launch their fourth season of “The Philadelphia True Crime Tour.” Featuring live music and storytelling performances on their signature haunted BYOB trolley.
Perfect for a date night or night out with friends, guests will get to listen to spooky tales including our nation’s first serial killer, H.H. Holmes, whose misdeeds began and ended in Philly, to an alarming number of serial killers that once called our city home.
Less dark topics include the debate over the city’s famed Barnes Foundation – is it the crown jewel of the Ben Franklin Parkway or the largest art heist in history pulled off by corrupt politicians who manipulated the court system and circumvented a will? And how did a woman taking her own life just feet from Independence Hall lead to James Buchanan becoming the only US President to hold the office as a bachelor?
Through storytelling, live music and video presentations, guests will be immersed in the sordid history of Philadelphia without ever having to leave their seat on the trolley.
The tour runs Thursdays through Saturdays all October, starting on Saturday, October 8th. Tickets are $55 dollars and the tour starts and ends at 601 Walnut. Tickets can be purchased at foundingfootsteps.com.
