I had wanted to take this tour for many years and unfortunately I was a little disappointed with the mile walking tour. I think the quality of the tour depends on the guide and while our guide was very nice and knowledgeable, our tour ended after only an hour and 5 minutes and at the Independence Visitors Center which is...

I just wanted to mention that Philadelphia has the best Murals in the World and the way that the program incorporates the youth is completely amazing....I had the opportunity to work with this program along with some youths from our school and the attentiveness by the children to complete the task was wonderful to see...So the next time you are...

There is plenty of history and art to see in Philadelphia, but if you'd like to explore what's happening now I encourage you to take a tour with the Mural Arts Program. There are over 1000 murals painted or mosaiced in public spaces in the city and a tour is a great way to see some of them. It was... More

I spent a fabulous morning doing the walking tour - I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm from the UK and don't know Philadelphia so it was a really good way not just to see some really interesting art, but to see different areas of the city and really get a feel for the place. Our guide, Ben, knew so much and... More

We took the Sunday walking tour around center city and were shown around 15 murals. Though we have been in this area countless number of times, we had never noticed these beautiful murals. Our guide, Ben G., was extremely knowledgeable and friendly - at the end of two and half hours, we knew we had really gotten our money's worth!

We went on the 2 hour trolley tour to learn about and see the many murals and it was worthwhile. The cars are typical, not super comfy. Most windows open but there's no air conditioning. The murals are wonderful. Very worthwhile. Bettina was a great guide.

A nice and entertaining experience on summer day experiencing the great mural artwork of the city. I recommend going online and printing the map and using the free call in system to get fact on each work.

The trolley tour narrated by Carol was just delightful! She is a wealth of information. The trolley was very comfortable, but a bit stuffy as the A/C wasn't reaching the back. The murals are magnificent and I wouldn't have seen them otherwise!

An art group of people who volunteer to teach art appreciation in our schools gathered to ride the trolly through center city area and view the fantastic art work of local artists on outdoor buildings. Amazing! My only regret is 1) these are painted on outside buildings and I fear the elements eventually destroying them- 2) the schedule for taking... More
