Full description
Explore the city of Philadelphia on a private driving tour, customized to suit your preferences, and available as either a half-day or full-day option. The former capital of the Pennsylvania Colony, Philadelphia is intimately connected to the history of Amercia. You will see all the highlights, including Elfreth’s Alley and the Liberty Bell. Go to Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was first debated. Pass Christ Church to see the birthplace of the American Episcopal Church, and Penn's Landing, where William Penn docked in 1682. Drive down the Avenue of the Arts and see Love Park (JFK Plaza), dominated by Robert Indiana's “Love” sculpture. Continue the arts theme at the Rodin Museum or Philadelphia Museum of Art, complete with Rocky’s statue and the steps used in the blockbuster movie. See where Al Capone was incarcerated at the Eastern State Penitentiary, admire the boat houses on the Schuylkill River, and visit Memorial Hall in Centennial Park. You’ll almost certainly get out to Belmont Plateau for a great view before coming back through Rittenhouse Square. There will be time to get out and take pictures or enjoy a short walk, perhaps down Elfreth’s Alley, or to the gazebo next to the boat houses on the Schuylkill. It’s your tour and your choice, but your guide will give some great suggestions. Take detours into Society Hill and out to the 9th Street Italian Market, home of the great Philly Cheese Steak. The full-day tour can be customized to include nearby neighborhoods or the beautifully situated Laurel Hill Cemetery and Historic Rittenhouse Town. Suggestions will also be given for lunch, whether you fancy a snack or full-blown meal.

Adam was amazing his knowledge of the history of the area really made our trip enjoyable. Our 17 year old son is a history buff and he and Adam had this great conversation. So much better than just having to read and listen too the standard recording. History really came alive!

I highly recommend this tour. Owen was our guide and was amazing. We really didn’t know what to go see and he made our trip so fun and informational. It was perfect for us!! Totally geared to our likes. If you have the time...definitely do this tour!!!

Owen was polite, informative and funny. He was prompt and worked with us creating a tour that covered our interests in the 6 hours we were there. The company was great, reaching out to us when we signed up for a 7am start they offered us a later time and we were able to come a mutual agreement that was fair to both parties. Great time and would use them again and would ask for Owen!
