First of all the overall experience was great! The concept is a great idea and from my knowledge I don’t think anybody else is doing this. I learned a lot about the murals, the city and Chrissy herself. She does an excellent job telling her story and the connection to each part of philly you visit. It’s inspirational, motivational and thought provoking all wrapped into one. I highly recommend others to experience this tour from a perspective that’s all to familiar forgotten.

Chrissy's tour was amazing! My husband and I really appreciated her ability to mix in stories about the neighborhoods we visited with the murals we got to see. I highly recommend this tour!

We had a wonderful and unique experience on our tour with Chrissy! She interwove her personal history while showcasing a side of the city that many people never get to see. Loved getting a unique and authentic experience. :)

First, if you clicked on this experience, there was something in your gut that told you to click. Go with that instinct. There are no words that could possibly describe the way I felt following Chrissy's tour. Everyone visiting the city should have to take this tour, especially if you are going to do other "touristy" things like visit the Liberty Bell. If you are a teacher...you NEED to take this tour. Plain and simple. Chrissy is an incredible story teller and human being. She loves her city, and it shows in each moment of the experience. She is vulnerable, weaving her own story into the murals and neighborhoods you make stops at. She loves the people--you're going to get to meet some incredible humans who run shops or art galleries. And of course, there is the art. The murals are breath-taking--both beautiful and devastating. If you're still reading this....click the "schedule a tour" button. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

Chrissy is an amazing story teller. I felt like I was being taken on a climatic journey as we walked through the streets of the Philly. I was amazed by the beauty and talent showcased in murals which decorate the hoods of Philly. I felt comforted by how knowledgeable Chrissy was on the background the mural creators and the history of Philly’s expressive art culture. I learned so much about black culture and history in Philly through this tour! This experience was invaluable and is a MUST for any cultural anthropologists and history geeks visiting Philly AS WELL AS all black people visiting Philly. Chrissy is an amazing guide for showcasing Philly’s vibrancy! She is funny, passionate, and observant. I will definitely be back with friends to experience this event again. Thank you Chrissy!
