Philadelphia Highlights Running Tour
Join me for a 4 mile run sprinkled with stories most Philadelphians don’t even know! Rather than feeling like a tourist, you’ll become a local weaving through the streets of Philly with me.

Whether you're here on vacation, business or even a local, there's no better way to learn about Philly while breaking a sweat!

Surf Lessons on LBI
Lessons are 1.5 hours, the first 20 minutes we go over the basics on the beach - safety, board anatomy, paddling, the popup, and positioning. The next 70 minutes are hands-on in the water where we catch waves, pop-up, and take control of the wave. Best time to surf is before noon, before the sea breeze, from 7:00am to 11:00am We can meet at any surfing beach that you prefer on LBI, or meet at some of my favorite surf spots - which ever is good for you. You will be surfing in no time! Other things to note Under the age of 13 requires a private one-on-one lesson. Up to 4 guests may attend if over the age of 12. This summer we will take extra Covid caution which may require you to drive to the beach - be prepared for wet, sandy surfers to get back into your car.
Discovering Colonial Philadelphia
Every building has a story to tell, from the materials, technology, and styles favored when it was constructed, to the people who designed, built, lived and worked there. Events of historic proportion take place in and around buildings as well. Come with me on this journey to discover all the secrets each building on our tour is waiting to tell us. We will be walking through Old City, visiting the oldest continuously inhabited residential street in the United States, and seeing the same buildings the Founding Fathers worked and worshiped in. Whether your interest is architecture, American History, visiting the places where Ben Franklin and George Washington lived and worked, or humming a tune from the Hamilton play as we experience Philadelphia as the Capitol of the United States, this tour is for you! This tour is also great for groups, teams and team building! Other things to note Bring cameras as there is much to photograph. Snacks that you like are good to have, or there are plenty of stores along the way. A hat and comfortable shoes are also a good idea to wear.
