Full description
Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, welcomes you on a special one-day visit. Depart on the early train from Pennsylvania Station, New York and in under 2 hours you'll be at Philadelphia's 30th Street station, just blocks away from some of the most iconic historic sites in America.  Join a hop-on hop-off tour for access to many points of interest in and around the city. Visit Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Carpenter House, and other historic sites. Or visit some of the wonderful museums in the area including the new National Constitution Center and the new National Museum of American Jewish History. Some of the oldest churches and synagogues are in the historic area as well. If history isn't your thing, visit the famous Eastern State Penitentiary, the Simeone Foundation Automobile Museum, the famed Barnes Foundation museum and so much more.  Take a load off your feet for an hour or two by having an included 2-course lunch at the Hard Rock cafe with Priority Seating. After a day of shopping, dining and sightseeing, walk around historic 30th Street rail station and enjoy some coffee and pastries before your relaxing rail trip back to New York City.

Our guide, Katie, was hilarious and one of a kind. Even in the freezing weather, her ability to retain so many facts & still relay them with her own personal flair warmed us up! This sightseeing busy was a very convenient way to get around the city’s landmarks and efficient way to explore them. Just be careful and beware the traffic in the later afternoon!
