What to Expect
Your private tour begins either with pickup directly at your Center City accommodation (available at select venues) or when you meet your guide at the Independence Visitor Center, conveniently located just adjacent to Philadelphia’s top attractions. This itinerary begins with many of the city’s most famous and recognizable landmarks, including the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall (where both the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were first adopted), and Betsy Ross House, former home of the seamstress said to have created the first American flag. As you go, your guide shares facts and stories about the city’s past. Next, discover a number of other Philadelphia highlights, including the New Hall Military Museum, the oldest stock exchange building in the US, and Christ Church, where the Founding Fathers once worshipped. The tour concludes in the area, or when you’re dropped off directly at your accommodation. Alternatively, extend your itinerary with an add-on driving tour of the city, which shows you even more of Philadelphia (including the famous Rocky Statue in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art).
