The mural arts tour was educational in that you learn a lot about how the murals are made and came to be. What you do not see is a whole lot of murals. In the course of the 90 minute tour, we saw maybe 8-10 murals at most, out of the 4000 or so that exist in the city. But perhaps a trolley tour would show you many more murals than you can see in a walking tour. One thing for sure...the murals are amazing, and you can see lots of them just by walking around on your own. They are everywhere.

As you walk or drive around Philly, you see murals everywhere. Ever wonder about them? Well, our daughters gave us a 2-hour walking tour through the Mural Arts program and it was fantastic. The knowledgeable guide not only shared good stories, but she pointed out how to do a self-guided tour using the labels on the murals. If you’re curious, you’ll love this tour. I saw this beautiful young woman (pictured mural, by Target on Chestnut) out my office window and the tour allowed me to learn her story. Very inspiring.

Through the Main Line School night and PAVA, we took a 2 hour bus tour, one of many available through PAVA, stopped at the Reading Terminal for lunch, then ended with painting of a current mural. Our 2 tourguides were terrific: History, details of the murals project and an opportunity to see and leave the bus and see a spectacular variety of murals. Kuddos to the bus driver who navigated through narrow streets and numerous neighborhoods. Pick a tour that suits you-bus, walking, bike riding, a MUST see in Philly.

We did the tour that left from the PAFA building on North Broad. Our tour guide was very informative and had great background information on each mural. It was hot and he was sensitive to keeping us in the shade and stopping for us to grab drinks. We thought it was a good tour and loved the diversity of the art. Note that you end at a different location than you start!
