First let me say, I loved Philadelphia. Didn't know what to expect so, I was pleasantly surprised a city this large is so beautiful. I wanted to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall so, my husband suggested "The Constitutional Walking Tour". It was $19 per person for 75 minutes and promised to go behind the scenes of 20 sights... More

I've lived in the area all my life yet Jason told me about facts and history I had not heard before. His enthusiasm on a very hot day never wavered. Our group of 3 adults and 2 children thoroughly enjoyed our tour experience.

We purchased a private tour as part of a teambuilding event for our newly formed team. Transactions and scheduling were very easy and Leslie was very helpful in getting us a guide and being flexible with our schedules. We met Debbie at the agreed upon National Constitution Center. She was patient and took us to get umbrellas as the weather... More

My wife planned and attend a field trip to Philadelphia, from Washington, D.C. Half of the trip was spent on a walking tour by "The Constitutional." She said that the kids seemed to really enjoy themselves and said that walking around the city and learning "cool stuff" was their favorite part of the trip. The tour guides took them to... More

Jenna, our guide, sought out shady spots for our small group to hear her informed and well delivered words about the historic sites we saw along the way. A great way to visit this national park!

Booked this tour through Groupon for visiting friends from Australia. It was the perfect tour to walk with a guide and see the many historical sites in Philadelphia. Our guide was informative and friendly and really knew his history. We covered lots in a short amount of time. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Melissa knew a lot about the historical sites in the city & was really friendly. I wish the walking tour allotted time to go inside some of the places we visited that didn't have too long of lines, including Betsy Ross' house and the Quaker House.

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.
