A lovely afternoon stroll with Nick

Nick was a knowledgeable tour guide with an intimate knowledge of Philadelphia’s history and central neighborhoods. Walking with him was like visiting with an old friend who just happens to love showing off his city. And then it’s capped off with a 30-minute free tour inside Independence Hall! A worthwhile way to spend an afternoon in Philly!

Sehr interessante, facettenreiche und gut zu verstehende Deutsch Führung durch die Alt- Stadt. Man erfährt alles Wichtige und auch einige noch interessantere Anekdoten über das damalige Leben in Philadelphia. Unser Reiseleiter war sehr nett und hatte noch tolle Tipps für die weitere Besichtigung auf Lager. Da auch die Stadt wirklich toll ist, hat uns der Aufenthalt hier sehr gefallen.
