The tour was great! Nick was sure to pick some spots that would peak the interest of my 6 year old. The whole family really enjoyed it.
Sehr interessante, facettenreiche und gut zu verstehende Deutsch Führung durch die Alt- Stadt. Man erfährt alles Wichtige und auch einige noch interessantere Anekdoten über das damalige Leben in Philadelphia. Unser Reiseleiter war sehr nett und hatte noch tolle Tipps für die weitere Besichtigung auf Lager. Da auch die Stadt wirklich toll ist, hat uns der Aufenthalt hier sehr gefallen.
