Full description
Discover the diversity of Philly in the best way possible - with tons of local style. Start at the ever-colorful South Street, then, head into the Bella Vista neighborhood for a glimpse of some beautiful mosaics. From there, hit up the oh-so-tempting tastes of the famous Italian market. Wander past the myriad of local stores carrying everything from cheese to chocolate, as well as the city’s best bakeries, butcher shops, and produce stalls. 

Continue on to Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, which showcases the mosaic art of Isaiah Zagar. This amazing place includes a fully mosaicked indoor gallery and a massive outdoor labyrinthine mosaic structure. From there, discover Philly’s eclectic and dynamic South Street and learn about the surrounding diverse neighborhoods. If you're hungry, pick up some lunch and rest your feet - your guide will have plenty of great recommendations.

Then, head into the heart of the historic district, and weave through the charming back alleys of Old City, and down the oldest continuously occupied residential street in the country. Get some great views of the site of Ben Franklin's home, Independence Mall, the National Constitution Center, and the U.S. Mint. Also pass the Liberty Bell, where you might get a chance to go inside for pictures. Next, set off to Washington Square for stories of William Penn and possibly visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Continue through Independence National Park and the must-see front yard of Independence Hall.

Finally, find out how there are few better ways to get to know a city than over a beer with a local. Meet your beer guide (or potentially continue on with one of your original guides!) at City Hall just as locals are finishing up their workday. Choose from some of the most unique, typical, and popular drinking establishments in the city. Have the option to visit the oldest continuously operating bar in Philadelphia, a classic dive bar, an Irish pub with local flair, a modern beer café, and many other neighborhood bars and pubs.

At each location, learn about the history of these bars and why they are so popular. One drink at each bar is included with the tour, as well as a pub or street snack. And the bars you visit all have one thing in common: a taste for Philadelphia's local craft beers and breweries! Quickly find out why Philadelphia is one of America's best beer cities. After happy hour, end your Philadelphia tour at the tour's final pub. From there, continue on your own Philly beer journey, grab some dinner at one of Philadelphia's many great restaurants nearby, or head straight back to your new favorite Philadelphia pub.

Great tour

All the Guides were great. Annett, Alex and another guide. I thought they all were passionate and loved what they were doing. I am sorry I didn't get all their names. But each one loved what they were doing and great knowledge of the city. It was great tour....Thanks I would recommend this tour to everyone.
