My 11-year-old son and I planned a Sunday 1-day trip to visit several locations starting at 10am - 5pm, and the Go Philadelphia All-Inclusive Pass was very convenient and no hassle. We parked where we were going to finish the day and walked to all locations, except an Uber from Mutter to American Revolution Museum: 1) Philadelphia Art Museum (10-11:30am) - excellent; could have spent 2-3 hours on the 3rd floor alone, but had to move on to get to other attractions; we are not huge fans of art, but the armor, paintings, sculptures, and woodwork kept our interest the entire time 2) East State Penitentiary (11:45-1:15pm) - great; very interesting and spent 1.5 hours there when we only planned for 45 minutes. 3) Mutter Museum (2-3pm) - great; many specimens and so much content considering the smaller size of the building 4) American Revolution Museum (3:15-5pm) - great; walk through history that led up to the Revolution, the different battles, and many details from that time period.

This tour was awesome. Kate was our tourguide she did a fantastic job, very dramatic and suspenseful. We very much enjoyed this tour, great value for the money. Thank you Kate, you were amazing!

This tour was excellent. Josh was great, and the stories were interesting and thorough without being gory. Great for all ages. Cobblestone and grass could make it challenging for some.

This tour was so fun. Our guide was awesome. He told great stories and kept us entertained.

Our guide was a wealth of information. It was a easy walk and a great experience.
