Great overview of the area
, Sep 2019
A perfect way to get a slow motion overview of the general area. With a knowledge of the area you can then go back and enter the buildings you prefer to see. Also, the guide was great!
If you are only spending a day in Philly, and want to understand how our Founding Fathers grew our government, this is the tour for you. In an hour and a half you will leisurely walk through the streets visiting sites where our Founding fathers lived and worked and understand how they built our government. Our very knowledgeable guide presented a perfectly orchestrated overview with the right balance of facts and fun information to help bring to light the essence of life during that time in history.
It was a fun walk, but I could have learned as much just reading the placards present at each of our stops. I would have liked more information, history, stories, entertainment, above and beyond what was obtainable at each stop. Could be much better!
We were in town for a day while headed to VA Beach, and I always wanted to run the steps and get a pic by the Rocky statue. After that we headed to the historic district for some history. I was aware of the tour beforehand and booked the day of. I was amazed how many things we saw along the way, many of which we probably would've missed if we went wandering on our own. My only regret was not being able to do the earlier tour, as we got a later start than I wanted. This tour does not take you inside to see the Liberty Bell or Independence Hall, so plan on doing those separate which will give you a great overview of how it all began. Our guide, Melissa, was great and I highly recommend this tour!
Dr. John is very knowledgeable and this was a super interesting tour. Just the right distance and route. This would be a great tour to start your visit with and go back and visit the individual sites that pique your interest!
We had a limited amount of time in Philly but wanted to see some of the main historical sites. This tour was nice and we felt like we got a good dose of the history of Philly in a short tour. Tour guide was fantastic.
