I was born and raised in Philadelphia and I love my City. I have a formal education in history and historical research. I also went to law school. I'm naturally bubbly, friendly and approachable.

I have a guide that gives tours on The Black Journey. His name is Mijuel. He has a degree in history and political science.

I really appreciated the depth of both historical facts and the storytelling aspect. For me, as an immigrant, was super important to learn more about Black America in this way - by a native of the city, and through walking on actual sites. Anyone visiting should do this. Skip the touristy lines to Liberty Bell, etc...

This is an absolutely amazing tour, very educational, very well planned, well thought out, heartfelt, and heartwarming. Money well spent. If anything I would pay double for this experience. Please take this tour, bring your friends, this is a history lesson everyone needs.

This was a wonderful walking tour. For first-timers to Philly and Philly natives this tour satisfied both audiences. Our guide Mijuel was fantastic — funny, knowledge and entertaining! For folks looking to learn more about the African American journey within Philly’s history, I highly encourage them to attend this tour.

The Black Journey was fantastic!! Having been on prior tours of Philly, Black Americans and Indigenous people were rarely if at all discussed. This tour takes you to key areas in the city and you hear stories of enslaved and free Black folk in Philly. Our guide was lovely and answered any additional questions the group had. I definitely recommend this tour if you're in Philly.

Really great! We were impressed with the structure of the narrative and how accessible the content was for the varied audience. Appreciated the judicious personal and humorous touches from Miguel which added to, rather than took away from, the focus. It’s difficult to walk that line as an interpreter, especially when the subject matter has so many dark chapters. Overall we found the tone to be informative but also uplifting. Definitely worth it!

Tour was amazing. My bf and I went to Philly for the weekend and I booked this tour last min. So glad I did! We learned so much. Miguel was respectful and very knowledgeable about the history of Philly. Book this tour. You will not be disappointed.
