My family enjoyed the walking tour of the city. We got a good overview of the city which gave us ideas on where we wanted to go back to re visit. You don't go into the attractions but you do get some good info about the locations from a tour guide. I would recommend it for older kids and adults.... More

Jason was an excellent tour guide. He shared the standard information about Philly we expected but also told us interesting side notes. His booming voice was easy to hear over traffic and other city noises. He recommended an excellent spot for lunch, the Reading Terminal Market. The only downside to this tour is that you don't get to go into... More

The idea of a walking tour of the historical sites in Philadelphia was very attractive to our family because we had a short time in Philly and thought this would be a good way to get the highlights of the historic sites. Given the 90 minute time of the tour, we figured that we would not actually be going into... More

The staff are helpfull. The guide is ok... But it's like a good dinner without a good wine. A little bit more and complete tour will be great!

This is a good overview of several historic places. The tour does not go into the buildings, just stops outside to give quick history lesson. You will need more time to explore the places after the tour concludes.

The walking tour, which you download to your MP3 player or phone, gives clear directions to guide visitors to the major stops of historic Philadelphia. I liked the length of explanation at each spot - all were under 4 minutes. For those who like to listen rather than read signs (or read signs in addition to listening), it's great. There... More

This was a relatively inexpensive tour that showed you the high points, along with additional insight into those as well as many other bits and pieces that I've never heard before and that were very interesting.

Excellent tour. Our guide, Jason, was very knowledgeable and really did a great job with explaining all the highlights. Note that you don't actually get to go inside any of the sites. You'll have to do that on your own.
