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.

Had a great tour with a knowledgeable tour guide, unfortunately I can't remember his name. Plus he had a booming voice so the whole group could hear him, even when there was construction nearby. Gives you a great overview so you can go back to places that really interest you.

This was my first visit to Philadelphia and the walking tour was a great introduction. The tour guide whose name is Vanjessica was full of humour, info and energy and made this walking tour very enjoyable. Lots to see and learn about landmarks you'd otherwise pass over. Little confusing as the info center does not sell tickets so order them... More

We had Vanjessica as our tour guide. We had been to Philadelphia before, but she added a lot to this experience. She was very knowledgable and excited to share her city! I would definitely recommend this tour.

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
