“You must stop here before doing anything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

They are very helpful, give you any information you need and it's where you should go to get tickets for Independence Hall and bus tours. After traveling in Europe where things aren't very organized, it's nice to a city where they are helpful and things are well labeled.

“Very helpful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Free tickets to visit the Independence hall are offered here. Lot's of information about what happened in Philadelphia is displayed here as well and that for free as well. The people working at the help desk were astounding and caring. That very morning two warning signs had appeared in our car when we drove. Looking into our car's manual, it was recommended we contact a Toyota service center immediately. However we had no idea who to contact. The help desk helped us locate one that would be able to help us the very next day. They also helped us with directions in town. They went well beyond what was expected of them. Thank you for your outstanding services!

“A Place to start Philadelphia tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is the first place you should reach when you commence a tour of Philadelphia as a tourist. The visitor centre gives an excellent orientation to the history of the city and the events leading the signing of the constitution. The centre is comfortably designed for tourists to relax and plan their activities.
