Seeing Philadelphia is NOT the same without this tour!!

We had 2 days to sight see in Philly. To get the double decker bus, to do the duck tour, or to wing it and do it ourselves was the question. We decided to do it ourselves and take... read more

I think I truly knew more history then our guide. Our tour was not helped by the children. I understand the guide could not do anything to shut down the continually questions by the kids or the woman who thought it was appropriate to google the answers. I really think our guide gave up.

I have been to Philadelphia many times and this tour was absolutely the best. Bunch of information that is hard to find and tour guide Jason was wonderful. I will be returning with friends that will benefit from this tour.

We had a great host, but alas, he moved to Florida days after our tour. I hope all the guides are as good. Historic Philly is in a very small area, so having enough interesting stories to engage the tour group is very important, you're only walking a few feet before the next tale begins. It's a great way to... More

I think this is the way to start your visit to the Independence National Historic Park in Philadelphia. In 75 minutes you can get the overview of most of the key sites with good insight to the history behind each. Note that you don't visit them in chronological order. To do that you would have to criss-cross the area and... More

We were just in town for the day and wanted to see and learn about as much of Philadelphia's history as we could. This tour was great. Fun and educational. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and also understanding of the fact that we were traveling with 4 young children. Everyone had a great time. I would highly recommend this... More

Our group of community center professionals thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Constitutional Walking Tour guide, Jason Gibbs. He was easy to hear which was important as we were a big group of 20. He was well informed not only about the 20 sites we saw but had great stories of leadership, compromise and diversity when we went to each site... More

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.
