Overview
This private and customizable tour (length/price, interests) for all ages is a great introduction and overview to Philadelphia’s history and culture. • We highlight iconic and historical sites such as Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell as well as picturesque streets and alleys in residential neighborhoods • We discuss a huge array of buildings from the Colonial to the Victorian eras, plus American skyscrapers and modernist buildings. • You will some of the city’s 4000 murals (street art) – the most of any city in the world, the largest municipal building in the world and the colorful Reading Terminal Market, home to several Amish businesses. It is the perfect place for a meal or a snack (not included). A hotel pick up and drop-off, if your hotel is located in the city center, can also be scheduled.

Thank you for your review and repeating bookings. Indeed the nature of the tour makes social distancing easy. The walkability index of Philadelphia being one of the highest in the country proves to be a major asset these days.

Patrick really makes the history of Philadelphia come alive! He is charming and knowledgeable. I especially appreciated the part of the tour that took us through the lesser know beautiful alleys. Don’t hesitate - a perfect outdoor activity!

Our favorite part of the tour was our guide. We have lived in Philadelphia for nearly 40 years and learned so much. We had out of town guests and were looking for help with introducing them to our city. Patrick was so knowlegeable and so much fun.

Thank you so much for your kind review. It is was beyond enjoyable discovering the lesser known Philadelphia with your party. Your needs were easy to meet since you already had such a deep appreciation for the history and the culture of the city.
