Founding Fathers Tour of Philadelphia

605 reviews
Philadelphia was the first capital of the United States, and is home to many major historical monuments and landmarks. On this intimate walking tour, see most of Philadelphia’s essential sights, all while learning about the City of Brotherly Love’s history from your guide. In the company of a small group, see Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross, Franklin Court, and more, and wind down with a cold beverage in Old City.

This place may be amazing but it is closed. Google maps gave hours that it was open, so we went to find it closed. We called the National Park Service and they noted that due to federal NPS hiring freeze, there aren't enough staff to keep it open and they don't know when it will reopen. So disappointing. Hope it can open soon.

Shame it wasn't open to see inside. It was cool to walk by and see the outside reconstruction but I had hoped to go inside.

We unintentionally visited this house while walking from our hotel to the Liberty Bell. It was a pleasant unexpected surprise.

I love all US history, cherish it and wanted to see where my favorite guy worked and wrote the Golden Words. I felt very happy to finally approach it and feel the spirit of the place, however, there are piles of garbage on the side and all over both yards. And the back yard smells like urine. I hope Philadelphia gets it right one day and clean it up, as it’s a complete disrespect to those who built our country. I already contacted the Philadelphia’s Government about it. So giving 4 stars just for Thomas Jefferson and his efforts.

I think that the current Graff House, just near Independence Hall, is a rebuild, nevertheless important to see. Closed when we visited
