Feed your mind as well as your belly on this Philadelphia city tour that bypasses the usual Philadelphia tourist spots and sends you back to school on the university campuses. Don't worry, there won't be an exam at the end - there'll be food trucks instead!
Your Philadelphia tour begins at Philadelphia's largest transportation hub, 30th St. Station. You'll get a glimpse of the fine architecture inside the grand terminal, and be in the midst of the busy intersection of trains, buses, subways, and trolleys. We leave the station on foot and begin the journey down Market Street and the neighborhood's research core.
Stop for a taste of the Caribbean or we'll keep it local, at our first group of food trucks. It’s a bit of a hidden gem here, and you’ll be amazed at the quantity and quality of food being produced here.
Walk through more of the campus and and if time allows a hidden nature preserve and pond. When we arrive at the trolley stop, your guide will provide a token for each person, which is valid for a ride on the trolley. This street trolley ride is a unique experience and you'll definitely feel like a Philadelphia local once you've taken a trip on it! From this point, you'll have the option to ride back to 30th St. or continue into the city center. If you want some tips on more things to do in Philadelphia that day, just ask your local guide!
