“Not Your Stuffy Old Museum Tour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

This walking tour is an excellent way for active people to learn about the rich history of Philadelphia. I don't love museum tours, because you spend a lot of time standing around, shifting your weight, looking at pictures on the wall and feeling antsy. Here, you are on the move, looking at actual sites and taking in all the activity of the area. It's especially great if you just got out of a car from a road trip...which my family of 4 did! We enjoyed our tour guide, and the others on the tour, learned a lot and saw a slice of Philadelphia we never would have on our own.

“Great walking tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

We are history buffs, but we learned so many new interesting facts. Jason was our guide and he was terrific. This is a way to learn history without being bored!

“Excellent! Best thing we did the whole stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

The very first thing we did in Philly was this tour. Don was our guide and though he had an injury that he said may hinder him, he did wonderfully. Friendly and knowledgeable. It was just me and my husband with an older couple and her brother in law (i think) so it was a small group. Hot day and wish this thing started earlier but it was worth it. We went everywhere around the Historic Park where he gave us time to take pictures. His information was the best we had on any of the other tours or exhibits we did. Things I may have walked by or thought not worth the time to seek out we saw on this tour. They and apparently EVERYTHING you do in Philly hopes for a tip of some sort. But his was worth it and glad we did. We judged everyone else based on him so they got much less. Do this tour and do it as soon as you can because after that we heard many of the same things but at the same time slightly different and saw many of the same things but now we had a bearing to what it was and so the information stayed with us better IMO. There are many types of walking tours and I would do at least one if not two.

“Filled with fun facts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

The Constitutional Walking Tour is a guided tour of historical sites and is filled with facts from the early days of Philadelphia. It is a leisurely pace and worth the price.

“Wonderful Introduction to Philly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

My wife and I had less than 24-hours in Philly, and this tour gave us a perfect introduction to the main historic sites. Our guide was a historian who was obviously passionate about the history she shared, which made the tour all the more interesting. Recommended for all new visitors! (Except small children; lots of walking.)
