We held a developer conference in Old City and for our last day we lined up a bunch of social events, including this tour. Worked out great. Everyone enjoyed the local tour. Our guide was friendly and informative. Since we didn't enter any of the major attractions I would say this is great way to get acquainted with the area... More

Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Could ask lots of questions along the way and he usually knew the answer. Thought the time and walking were reasonable. Would suggest this tour to others.

Several walking tours were advertised and we opted for this one and were not disappointed. Our guide Jenna was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minute tour during which you cover about 1 1/2 miles. You cover almost all of the major attractions downtown but do not go into any of them. We had already been to see... More

Jason, our tour guide is fantastic and we request him every year. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about... More

Hands down best option for a group. I just took a team of 20 professionals from across the country (and some from abroad) and they loved it. Jason was our guide and he was fabulous - knowlegeable, passionate and did a great job of reading our group and tailoring his comments to them. Kudos to the tour coordinator, Leslie, who... More

Our group of 40 people was in Philadelphia for a conference. We offered the tour as an optional event. Melissa and Richard were our guides. They were upbeat and friendly, and presented a wonderful tour for our group. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants an interesting overview on the history of our country.

Melissa was our guide on Saturday and greeted us with an upbeat smile. We do tours occasionally in Philadelphia as we live in New Jersey and the tours can be fun and this one was. Melissa took us to historical spots that you would assume you go to, and then some we never even knew about. The tour is about... More

This is how you begin your Philadelphia stay. The guides are well informed and excited about the history of the city. They help familiarize you with the city and gives valuable pointers. I should warn you that it is fast paced and you don't go into the buildings.

Broad but not very deep. I appreciated the efficiency of seeing so many historic sites in a short period of time but did not get much more insight into the sites than what I could have read on the signs.

We were amazed about how much we didn't know about the founding history of America and how Philadelphia played a major role in so many various important world events! It takes you 90 minutes and is fun and entertaining.
