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.

This walking tour was an absolutely perfect introduction for my 7 year old son to the historic sites of Philadelphia. Our guide, Melissa, was very knowledgeable and could get into details if requested but the tour kept moving and didn't get too specific outside of some fun anecdotes I didn't know. My little guy didn't get bored at all. He... More

Went on this tour hoping to gain a lot of information, but was pretty disappointed at the fact that tour guide only told us things that we could have read on the signs. Not worth the 18 dollars per person

We recently booked a private VIP walking tour of Philly. It was a wonderful experience, as most of our group had been to Philly many times we still learned a great deal about the city's history. our guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining.

We bought this tour through Groupon and got it 1/2 price. We took it our first day there (we are from MO). We did the first tour at 10 AM and only had 4 in our group. The entire tour took about 90 minutes and wasn't really that tiring--we are 53 and wore our tennis shoes. The information was very... More

We found a groupon that was bogo free. It was totally worth it! Our guide was really awesome. I wish I remembered her name. We went on the 2 pm tour on June 24th. She was a drama major and did a phenomenal job as our guide. The group was not very large and it made it easy to stay... More

The Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia was an excellent tour. We took the 90 minute walking tour and the time went by very quickly. Jason, our tour guide, was very engaging with all members of the group and provided an interesting and very informative overview of the historical relevance of the people and places that helped shape the formation of...
