What to expect

See the landmarks that shaped America in real life on this tour. From the building where the US Constitution was signed to George Washington's house and a church where America's founding fathers once sat.

Begin your tour through Independence National Park as your guide shares a bit about the park's historical buildings, including Independence Hall, Congress Hall and Old City Hall. You'll get to pass by the impressive mosaic mural, The Dream Garden by Maxfield Parrish (on weekdays only), and perhaps enjoy an excursion into Washington Square. Pass Liberty Bell and the President’s House, home to George Washington. Wander through Independence Mall, home to Independence Visitor Center, the National Constitution Center, the Bourse and the U.S. Mint. Then stop by the gravesite of Ben Franklin before making your way into the charming back alleys of Old City with its unique art galleries, trendy coffee shops and industrial architecture. After a brief pause to eat, you'll continue on to Betsy Ross House and Christ Church, where you'll learn about the birth of the Episcopal Church in the States. Your guide will then take you to their favorite local bar or restaurant at the end of the tour. Enjoy a complimentary craft beer, or soft drink if you prefer, and wind down after an eventful day!

To take your experience to the next level you can choose to have a private guide, just for you and your group! Simply select the option you prefer at checkout.
