A great introduction to the history of the USA

We had an excellent guide who was very animated but made sure you remembered the information he gave because of his style. This is THE place in American history, a must.

A really good tour led by some of the best guides I've seen. The history and architecture are equally impressive. Get your tickets early before going to other attractions. They go fast.

In the center of the historic area of Old Town. You can feel the history and the ghosts of our fore-fathers as you view Independence Hall.

The tour is a must for any visitor's itinerary. You can not visit Philadelphia without booking a tour (with a guide).

imagine, you're walking where Washington, Jefferson, Romero and Franklyn walked. if you don't knw who Romero was look him up as he's very much a BIG part of OUR nations history(look on back of NJ's state quarter-good choice NJ.) take the time and just relax and soak in the history.

Do check them out! The mall but I was early in the morning so nothing much. The view from the outside is good and can get some food.

This is an impressive open expanse of grass. Not too long ago it was a slum of homes. The highlights are Independence Hall on one end with the Liberty Bell near by. You can not visit Philadelphia without stopping here. Near the Market Street Subway.
