We printed out the tour before we arrived and quickly separated the jobs of navigator (map) from tour guide. The tour is well organized and does a nice job of weaving through the landmarks without making the tour feel like it is running in circles. We stopped after step 7 (independence hall area) and took a pit stop at Jim's... More

We took this guided tour, it took about 5 hours and was worth every minute of it. There were plenty of stops, lots of photo ops and tons to learn. Our guide (in period dress) was super knowledgeable and patient with our large student group of nearly 80. We saw so many sites that make up the core of of... More

Constitutional came recommended by the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau and I'm happy to report that they were very helpful and responsive. We made arrangements for a 90-minute group walking tour that included historical information relevant to my group's conference. Our guide Ben, a professor at a local college, was amiable, knowledgeable and loud (always a plus on a walking... More

We reserved the Constitutional Walking tour and were met by our guide Ben before 10am. There was only one other person on our tour, so we basically had a private tour!! Ben was a really nice guy and an excellent tour guide who led us through the city talking about Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin and the creation of the USA. He... More

He was happy and enthusiastic and we were interested in all he had to say. This tour is a great way to start your vacation because it will give you an... More

I went on The Constitutional Walking Tour with some friends and had a great time! Our guide, Jason, was amazing! The tour was very informative and entertaining. I made sure to bring my walking shoes due to some of the other comments here, but the walk felt very brief and was interspersed by the frequent stops to see all the... More

My husband and I took their Teacher Appreciation tour this summer. We really enjoyed the tour and learned some interesting things about Philadelphia and our nation's history! It might be helpful for the guides to wear a mic or have some kind of voice projecting device as there are lots of people/buses/etc during the day and it was sometimes difficult... More

We just finished private tour with the Constitutional Walking tours of Philadelphia. It was...so-so. The material was interesting but our guide has chosen to give it to us in a monotone and make it kinda boring. Many of the questions we asked the tour guide did not know. Overall , just like other touristy things - all depends on a... More
