Our guide was Melissa. So personable, fun and knowledgeable! Great overview of the city’s/country’s history. Do this your first day, then go back and see exhibits you were interested in. Approximately 1 1/2 hours. And she will take pictures of you/yours.

Philadelphia in 90 minutes made whole

This tour efficiently brought us around to see all the truly important sites around the constitutional Park area of Philadelphia, but also quite a few little gems I would have otherwise missed. You do not go indoors to any of the locations, but the guides are very knowledgeable and entertaining. For the price, and the time, very very much worth it!

Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The walking tour was only a little over a mile and easy to accomplish even on a hot day - just be sure to bring a water bottle. We traveled with our nine year old son, and he had no trouble keeping up. Our guide even made the extra effort to answer all of his questions (and nine year olds have quite a few questions). Highly recommended!
