Even if you stop and read all the displays the walk through which ends with the liberty bell is pretty quick. It's worth the visit if it's your first time Philly, the bell is symbol of freedom and worth the line which moves quickly (went...More

Line was very long and it really wasn’t worth the wait, really just boring. Skip it and do something else if your pressed for time. This history teacher would rather have done something else.

You definitely need to visit the Liberty Bell if you are passing through Philly. There will be a line to get in, but it’s worth the wait.

Our guides were exceptional. Infusing a lot of humor and information into our time together. Really helped bring history to life! Like that they keep the size of the tour groups small so you can really see in each of the rooms you visit.

We went here because you cannot visit Philadelphia without seeing the bell. Personally to much history so we skipped that party and went straight to the bell for pictures. Nice and free entrance

We enjoyed the tour very much. The National Park volunteers are so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about American history and make it so interesting. As we were standing in Independence Hall I could envision our founding fathers creating our nation. I do recommend reserving your tickets...More

The 1/2 hour tour at Independence Hall was very informative. The wait to see the Liberty Bell was about 20-25 minutes. I didn’t like that it was just a mass mob at the Bell...I would have preferred the line there to ensure some decent pictures...More
