It doesn't look like they have another one scheduled for Fishtown, but if you navigate the site you can see what the schedule looks like.

Another Fishtown walking tour is scheduled for Saturday, September 15. $10, meet at 10 AM in front of the statue at Penn Treaty Park. Tour is limited to the first 25 people who show up. Online tickets are apparently available, too. Not required, but I'm assuming that assures a spot.

I'm going on their "Jewish Immigrant Philadelphia" walking tour tomorrow, the weather should be great!

Today's tour was great. We met up at Society Hill Synagogue (Spruce between 4th & 5th) at 2 PM, and over the course of a little more than two hours did about a mile of walking I'd guess, weaving a path as far east as 3rd, as far south as Bainbridge and as far west as 6th, and ended at B'nai Abraham on Lombard between 5th & 6th. Saw about a dozen sites along the way, and learned a lot. I recommend it. I believe 21 people were on today's tour.

I almost went to the one today! I had a free day as my kid was at the beach with his friend but I was too lazy to do much today. I really enjoyed the Fishtown one!
