What to expect

Get into the festive spirit on this Christmas tour in Philadelphia! Your tour begins at Philadelphia's City Hall, the cultural and geographic heart of the city center. After you've met your guide, head to Dilworth Park--a historic railroad terminal and indoor market. Next, you'll arrive at a holiday light and sound show featuring the world’s largest pipe organ. From there, you'll enter one of Philly's biggest shopping and restaurant districts, as well as Rittenhouse Square. Here you’ll see the beautiful Christmas tree and a view of the church.

You’ll be then treated to a spectacular holiday show from one of the world’s largest LED TV screens inside one of Philly’s newest skyscrapers. After the show, walk toward the Ben Franklin Parkway as you take in views of Logan Square, Sister Cities Park and the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul--a Christmas destination for many Catholics in the Philadelphia area. The tour concludes at an iconic public park for one of Philly's fastest growing traditions. Here you’ll visit a traditional outdoor Christmas village, then feel free to continue eating, shopping and basking in the holiday spirit of Philadelphia.
