We had a great tour guide, Jason. He was very informative of the area and historical suites. Was disappointed the tour didn't take us inside Independence Hall or the Liberty Bell. You can see the Liberty Bell fairly easilyrics, but have to get a separate ticket at visitor center with sethe tour time. You may have to wait around for... More

It was a great way to see the important places and have a tour guide tell us fun facts and history. Especially for someone on their own and not wanting to tour alone. Nice pace, fun facts and a pleasant guide.

First the good: Van Jessica was the reason we went through with the tour. She was engaging, considerate, and knowledgeable. Her enthusiasm for the Philadelphia and it’s history made a long, hot walk fun. Now, the bad: finding the Constitutional Walking Tour is a needle-and-a-haystack game. We should’ve booked in advance—maybe there’s more information—but we didn’t know when or even... More

We had a great experience on this historical walking tour through the major sites in Old City Philadelphia. Our tour guide, Jason, was extremely knowledgeable and told us about the significance and history of these historical sites in such an interesting and informative way! Every question that was asked he was able to respond with an in depth answer without... More

This is a nice tour that will walk you around the main historical sites in Philadelphia and give you an introduction to the city and its colonial history. I recently did this tour with a group of Boy Scouts and we enjoyed it. You'll walk to many of the famous sites such as Independence Hall, the location where the First... More

We are normally "seat of the pants type" of tourists and don't really like to be constrained to a long tour. The pace was a comfortable walk and we always had a shady spot to hear about the historical tidbits. This was the perfect length. Jason was very personable and informed-never once was he stumped by a historical question. A... More

We enjoyed our tour with Conner. He was great! He was so knowledgeable I thought he was a history major! His voice carried well, he was very warm and friendly. He kept our attention even though it was about 95 degrees out there. Good tour to take to give you an overview of historic sites and then you can go... More

All such tours depend on the quality of the guides. Mine was good. There's a lot to see with little walking and you work out what you want to go and see in more detail on your own.

First, it was 98 degrees on the day we did our tour (at 2pm). Our tour guide was Jason and he was easily identifiable and arrived 10 min early to the meet-up location. He was personable and friendly while we waited for the last people to arrive. We started promptly at 2pm even though some people had not yet shown... More
