Very informative ranger or volunteer takes you around. Definitely would do it if you're in the area and you have the time. The tour doesn't last very long, about half hour. To see a little bit of the history of USA was well worth it.

Touring the halls where the men representing the original 9 colonies sat argued and discussed how to form our great nation into the United States is an honor. Seeing the artwork portraying their great achievements was outstanding. Just knowing these historical sites have been maintained gives hoper that our nations birthplace will be preserved for our children, grand children for... More

It was amazing having the chance to know Phila (that's just an abbreviation. The city's nickname is Philly). And we we around the old historical center on foot and on a carriage, with a very good and nice guide. Thank you, Zack, for showing us around! And our thanks to Roll, too, the Percheron huge horse that was pulling the... More

Great organization of tour. Waited in line maybe 5 minutes for tickets and for the tour. Information was presented very well by very knowledgeable guide. Perhaps a better way of coordinating the two groups in the two rooms would limit distractions.

One of the most famous places in American history. You will see the rooms where the Constitution was debated and signed. They are laid out as they were then, but the little of the furniture is original. The tour is very good. You are given timed tickets. We arrived around 10.30am and got timed tickets for 3.00pm, but we were... More

We joined a guided tour, after booking tickets at the visitor's centre as one does, and found it very interesting and informative. The beautiful Georgian building is in perfect condition and it is very moving to enter a place where American (and indeed European) history was 'made'. The guide was excellent, with a wonderful sense of humor, probably inherited from... More
