You will be swimming in history as you stroll the streets of the beautiful Philadelphia, a city famous for so many reasons it is difficult to fit everything into just one tour. Start your day by meeting your guide in the Philly Tour Hub, before moving on to the vibrant and culturally rich area of Old Town. There is much to see and learn in this district, including a visit to the well-known Christ Church, as well as a coffee and chat with your guide in a gorgeous local café.

Then it’s onto Philly’s Historic District, where you can see Ben Franklin’s home, as well as fantastic views of Independence Mall, the National Constitution Centre, and the mighty U.S. Mint. Continue past sites such as the President’s House, Liberty Bell, and onto Washington Square, where there will be no shortage of camera clicks in the vicinity.

Finally, it’s onto the National Independence Park and the amazing view of Independence Hall’s front yard. Breathe in the history of the site where the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution were both signed, before strolling past the numerous other historical sites, all of which your guide will ensure you understand. We end up back in Old Town, to share a cold drink at a local brewery, and recap on the amazing amount of history we have just witnessed during this awesome tour of Philadelphia.
