We bought this tour through Groupon and got it 1/2 price. We took it our first day there (we are from MO). We did the first tour at 10 AM and only had 4 in our group. The entire tour took about 90 minutes and wasn't really that tiring--we are 53 and wore our tennis shoes. The information was very... More

We found a groupon that was bogo free. It was totally worth it! Our guide was really awesome. I wish I remembered her name. We went on the 2 pm tour on June 24th. She was a drama major and did a phenomenal job as our guide. The group was not very large and it made it easy to stay... More

The Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia was an excellent tour. We took the 90 minute walking tour and the time went by very quickly. Jason, our tour guide, was very engaging with all members of the group and provided an interesting and very informative overview of the historical relevance of the people and places that helped shape the formation of...

We had an afternoon to spend in Philly, and we really didn't know which sites to see. We chose this tour, and I'm glad we did. It was a beautiful afternoon to walk around and learn about the history of the area. You do not enter inside any of the specific exhibits, but get to see a lot of the... More

I lived in Philadelphia for years. I loved visiting Independent Hall. There's a lot of history, and great restaurants in the surrounding area. I suggest everyone visit the hall, walk around old city, and eat a Philly pretzel.

We printed out the tour before we arrived and quickly separated the jobs of navigator (map) from tour guide. The tour is well organized and does a nice job of weaving through the landmarks without making the tour feel like it is running in circles. We stopped after step 7 (independence hall area) and took a pit stop at Jim's... More

We took this guided tour, it took about 5 hours and was worth every minute of it. There were plenty of stops, lots of photo ops and tons to learn. Our guide (in period dress) was super knowledgeable and patient with our large student group of nearly 80. We saw so many sites that make up the core of of... More

Constitutional came recommended by the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau and I'm happy to report that they were very helpful and responsive. We made arrangements for a 90-minute group walking tour that included historical information relevant to my group's conference. Our guide Ben, a professor at a local college, was amiable, knowledgeable and loud (always a plus on a walking... More

We reserved the Constitutional Walking tour and were met by our guide Ben before 10am. There was only one other person on our tour, so we basically had a private tour!! Ben was a really nice guy and an excellent tour guide who led us through the city talking about Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin and the creation of the USA. He... More
