What to expect

Visit those unmissable Philly sights on this historical Philadelphia tour that ditches the guidebooks and gives you a dose of history from a local perspective. After all, this is the history that shaped the people of this city, so why not learn about it from them?

Start your Philadelphia tour at the Philly Tour Hub, where you'll meet your guide and see some great local art and photography inside this historic space. Outside, we’ll see the Betsy Ross House and hear stories of the birth of the American flag. From there, we weave through the charming back alleys of Old City, and wind up walking down the street famous for being the oldest continuously occupied residential street in the country.

Next, you’ll be treated to a visit inside Christ Church, where you'll hear stories of our founding fathers, sit where they sat, and learn about the birth of the Episcopal Church in America.

As this Philadelphia tour winds down, we exit the park and head back into the vibrant Old City neighborhood. We end the tour at a local brewpub. You'll get a craft beer brewed in-house (or soft drink if you wish) included in the price of the tour, and we'll say a cheers to the beautiful city of Philadelphia!
