    As the birthplace of American democracy, Philadelphia is rich in American history and plenty of telltale mementoes of a British colonial past. On your private historic architectural tour of Philadelphia, you will:

    - Walk Philadelphia’s most storied sidewalks, delving into side alleys to discover the stories behind the numerous plaques and monuments.
    - Stroll Philadelphia’s cobbled streets to discover handsome colonial era architecture with shuttered windows, trailing ivy and bloom-filled planters.
    - Learn about the work of William Penn, an English-born Quaker and advocate of religious freedom, who oversaw the founding of the American Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
    - See where the Liberty Bell originally stood in the elegant Georgian environs of Independence Hall.

    Philadelphia is richly endowed with quaint, cobblestone streets and historic houses packed with charm. Alluring Federalist and Greek Revival-style row homes line neatly curbed pavements and tree-hemmed paths. Straddling large corner plots are grand mansions in high-walled gardens; their elegant painted shutters and imposing street-facing, brass-knobbed doors in bold, baronial hues. As the birthplace of American democracy, Philadelphia is rich in American history and plenty of telltale mementoes of a British colonial past.

    On the Colonial Era Streets and Historic Architecture Tour, you will learn the origin stories of several of the oldest buildings in Philadelphia. see Independence Hall - a beautifully proportioned building of perfect architectural balance and symmetry that is more evocative of a country house than urban structure. A similarly outstanding building is Powell House, built in 1765 and elaborately refurbished by its second owner Samuel Powel (1738–1793) and often described as "the finest Georgian row house in the city". George Washington, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were frequent house guests in this grand pile and would attend Sunday morning services at St. Peter’s, a historic Episcopal church, and our next port of call.

    At each turn on the route, your guide will share stories of the old buildings, the preservation efforts that went into keeping the structure, and the way the city is telling its' founding story.
