What You Can Expect
Walk down the hill past World Cafe Live, a live music venue, and enter Penn Park, a new green space with spectacular views of the Philadelphia skyline.
Pass some of the most iconic college sports venues in the country, such as Franklin Field and the Palestra, and then enter the heart of the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) campus, which opened its doors in 1751 and credits Benjamin Franklin as its founder.
At Franklin Field you will reach the second group of food trucks during the heart of lunch hour as you make your way to Penn's campus.
Your guide will lead you past Fisher Library, an architectural masterpiece created by Frank Furness, and past College Hall, with its characteristic green hue. Enter Houston Hall, home of the country’s first Student Union, and then continue up Locust Walk, a picturesque campus promenade.
From there you will end up on Spruce Street with the third group of food trucks lining the streets and you'll be treated to something sweet at the final location.
Lastly you'll walk through hidden preserves and a pond on the campus making your way to the trolley stop where your guide will provide a token for each person, valid for a ride on the trolley. From this point, you'll have the choice to ride back to 30th Street or continue to Center City.
We are so glad we did this your. The guide was a really nice guy and knew his stuff. As my son and I were the only two booked we got a private tour as well!! Highly recommend this tour
Josh Silver is the finest tour guide I've ever had and I've had a lot of them. Ask for him specially.
