Grim Philly is known for its "Vampires, Sex, Ghosts" tour through Old City. It's R-rated, educational and spooky. The edgy tour isn't the only Grim Philly experience available, though.
This year, two tours ("Séances" and "Ghost Hunting") will have family options. During "Séances," a medium joins guests and attempts to make contact with the dead. In "Ghost Hunting," local expert Laurie Hull-McCabe helps all ages hunt for the paranormal in Old City. Ghost hunting equipment will be provided.
A new Halloween tour is available, too. "Graveyards & Ghosts" highlights "the origin of the Halloween tradition, witchcraft, zombies, magick and all matters of undead antebellum folkloric Philadelphia traditions," according to a press release.
Minors will be allowed on the tour, with parental supervision and a warning that the tour can get pretty scary.
Other Grim Philly tours, many of which are available year-round, are for adults only. All tours take place in Old City and include educational and historical material.
