Half Day Highlights Tour in a Private Vehicle

Your guide will take you on a poignant journey around the historic sites of the American Revolution where the seeds of independence were taking root long before a musket shot was fired. As you walk around Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross’s homes, along with the homes of numerous other founders, your guide will colour in the missing details of life in Philadelphia during the period: about the political climate of the time, about the tension and excitement around the city. Continue onto JFK Plaza where you can see one of the city’s most ‘instagrammable’ and recognisable sculptures: the LOVE statue. Then drive up the wide lanes of Benjamin Franklin Parkway, a street whose numerous sites could fill up a day on its own. See Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’ and numerous other public sculptures outside the Rodin Museum, before descending the 72 steps to the top of the ‘Rocky Stairs’. From the summit, enjoy sweeping vistas across Eakins Oval, Philadelphia City Hall, and Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Private Walking Highlights Tour of Philadelphia

Private Walking Highlights Tour of Philadelphia

Because Philadelphia is one of America's oldest cities, the historic city preceded cars by several centuries - making it an ideal city to see by foot. 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. To see the remnants of these boom-and-busts of the city, nothing is better than a privately guided walk of it. On your tour, you will not only check off the highlights of the historic district, but also to fall in love with the city's unique combination of grit and charm. Please note: this tour still runs in winter, though it will cancel for fresh snow. Year round, we recommend great walking shoes, layers, and water.
