:: OUR MISSION ::

In a majority Black city where tourism generates a staggering 6 billion dollars, the lack of Black representation and more importantly impact for local communities is a huge issue Philly Experiences enjoy being the native owned, ethical solution to. We are a proudly Black, LGBTQIA+ and hood owned social impact brand. In 2024, it is disheartening to report that Black-owned businesses represent only 4% of all local businesses. This fuels our mission to directly support them through awareness, increased foot traffic/sales, and collaborations.

At Philly Experiences, every ticket or digital guide you purchase assists us in challenging the narrative of what is deemed the "hood" pre and post-gentrification and turn tourism dollars into free resources and community building events for our underserved locals and businesses at low or no cost to them.

Join us in the journey to amplify a better, Blacker THRIVING Philadelphia today.

“Travel changed me and it only took one trip to do so,” shares Watts. From her own experience learning about the issues faced by locals on a spontaneous trip to Barbados, Watts came up with the idea to share her story and the stories of her community — her black, LGBTQIA+, hood culture community — with travelers through her Morals & Murals Hood Tour.

:: WHAT ARE OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING ::

"I would recommend Morals + Murals hood tour to anyone but especially to my white peers who are looking to deepen their understanding and knowledge of Black culture and history in Philly and understand how oppression and racism continues to thrive in our city today."
