A note about this tour
Our organization has created a comprehensive strategy to ensure the safety of our guests, guides, partners, vendors, and the wider local community. All staff members are trained in these new safety procedures and we will continue to follow local government guidance.


Philadelphia is widely regarded as one of America’s most historically significant cities, and for good reason! This is the city where the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were born. It was Philly that served as America’s capital before Washington DC even existed. Here is where the American flag was created, where Ben Franklin proved that lightning was just electricity, and where the iconic Liberty Bell rang and cracked but endures as a symbol of freedom.

These are just a few examples of how Philadelphia has helped shape the United States of America. Come and take a guided stroll along the cobblestone streets of Old City, through the history you think you know.

Our local expert will separate the fact from the fiction, and you will be amazed by Philadelphia’s remarkable past.

Adam was a very informed guide, I learned so much about Philadelphia. We took our 11 year old granddaughters and they loved it.

Our guide, Favre, was horrible. She knew we were with a wheelchair and did not know where any of the handicapped ramps were. She jumped from one subject to another area. She had very strong opinions that Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross and George Washington did not do what they are known to do or where they lived. Very disappointing.
