“Our guide Julian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Yes a walk of 1 1/2 hours but plently of stops for questions and photos.
Julian met us at the alotted time on Sunday afternoon giving us an overview of what was on the tour asking if we had any past knowledge or experince with Philly. We advised only from the Big Bus tour experince. We set off at a brisk pace - the tour had started.
Julian was excellent - we would highly recommend this tour, knowledge, history and stories all told of old Philly.

“Take this tour in Philly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

We reserved the Constitutional Walking tour and were met by our guide Ben before 10am. There was only one other person on our tour, so we basically had a private tour!! Ben was a really nice guy and an excellent tour guide who led us through the city talking about Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin and the creation of the USA. He also made sure we had tickets to see the inside of Constitution Hall by directing us to the centre as soon as we showed up before 10am. We learned many new things from Ben and even got a great restaurant recommendation for a quick lunch. This tour is a great way to explore this area in Philadelphia.

“Great tour guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Fabulous tour to learn a little of history before you set out to explore the sights at your leisure. Our guide on Saturday 31st aug at 10am was excellent. He was happy and enthusiastic and we were interested in all he had to say. This tour is a great way to start your vacation because it will give you an idea of what you want to see in more detail and the cost was very reasonable $18 thanks very much for a great morning

“Great Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

I went on The Constitutional Walking Tour with some friends and had a great time! Our guide, Jason, was amazing! The tour was very informative and entertaining. I made sure to bring my walking shoes due to some of the other comments here, but the walk felt very brief and was interspersed by the frequent stops to see all the historic sites!

“Teacher Appreciation Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

My husband and I took their Teacher Appreciation tour this summer. We really enjoyed the tour and learned some interesting things about Philadelphia and our nation's history! It might be helpful for the guides to wear a mic or have some kind of voice projecting device as there are lots of people/buses/etc during the day and it was sometimes difficult to hear over the surrounding noises. All in all, though, it was a great way to learn about our nation's history. Hopefully, my husband will be able to coordinate a trip for his student's to return and do this sometime this year! This is definitely a good tour for anyone interested in learning more about the historical landmarks in the area!
