The Best of Philadelphia - Private Walking Tour
  • The Best of Philadelphia - Private Walking Tour

    $321.00Price
    Meet your guide in the historic heart of the city, and begin your tour where the city of Philadelphia began.
    Originally founded as a haven for religious freedom by William Penn, Pennsylvania was colonised by French Huguenots, Mennonites, and most famously in the state - Quakers and Amish. The capital city was formed in 1682 and has served as the seat of government ever since. Throughout the centuries, Philadelphia has gone through revivals and slumps - prosperous then seasons of economic free fall.

    During the American Revolution, Philadelphia was the site of the First and the Second Continental Congresses. After the Revolution, the city was chosen to be the temporary capital of the United States from 1790 to 1800. Though federal and state governments left Philadelphia at the beginning of the 19th century, the city continued for some years to be the nation’s cultural and financial hub.

    To see the remnants of these boom-and-busts of the city, nothing is better than a privately guided walk of it. From its role in inventing the United States to the modern ways in which Philadelphia continues to reinvent itself today, your guide will take you through the highlights and spots off the beaten track to give you a feel of the entire city –not just the highlights seen by most. On your tour, you will not only check off the highlights of the historic district but also fall in love with the city's unique combination of grit and charm.

    Your tour ends at Reading Terminal Market, filled with locals and travellers alike, where you can return throughout your stay to shop for groceries or dine on the go.

    Please note: this tour still runs in winter, though it will be cancelled for fresh snow. Year-round, we recommend great walking shoes, layers, and water.
