What You Can Expect

Discover Philadelphia's history and famous attractions on board a horse-drawn carriage. Departing from the carriage stand at 5th and Chestnut Streets across from Independence Hall in downtown Philly, travel back in time on a historical ride through the city. The guide will share stories behind every passing landmark location, including Independence National Historical Park, the Liberty Bell, and Independence Hall. 

Visit the Society Hill neighborhood, with the largest collection of original 18th- and early 19th-century residential architecture of any location in the United States; and Old St. Joseph's Church, the first Roman Catholic church ever built in Philadelphia.

In Old City, see the famed Betsy Ross House, where it is believed the seamstress and flag maker lived when she created the first American Flag; famous Elfreth Alley, the oldest residential street in the US; plus the Philadelphia Mint (aka the United States Mint at Philadelphia), Benjamin Franklin’s grave at Christ Church Burial Ground, the nonpartisan National Constitution Center and much more.

This was awesome. Received a call letting g me know we would start late due to the fact it was too hot for the horse. Loved that! :-)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Our hotel was not super near where the carriages are parked so I was happy that there was a complimentary shuttle service to and from the carriage. Our guide and horse Barney were both excellent.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2016

It was a nice way in seeing all of the historical sights in the city. The guide was a little inexperienced (hence the 3 star) but I and #39;m sure there are many experienced guides out there.
