Thomas was amazing and fantastic. As a teacher, his phrasing, presentation and story telling were excellent. He was a hospitable host- handing out candy for correct answers and offering tea and water cups at certain points of the walk. My kids rated it 12 out of 10. We very much enjoyed the walk. I was hosting a friend from out of town and I have been on other tours for Philly- this was a great tour!! Thank you Thomas!

Thomas is an extremely knowledgeable guide that answered all my questions (and I had many:) while still maintaining his focus on the tour managing individual requests in parallel to the overall tour!

Tom did an excellent job reviewing the Philadelphia Old Town area and American history. He was very informative and engaging in his teaching of the various sites and talking about historical figures like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. I would certainly recommend you guys book with Tom in the future for an informative history tour.

About Philadelphia

Few cities in the United States can boast of having the depth of American history as Philadelphia can. Known for being the birthplace of the nation, where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written,  this city is located on the East Coast, halfway between New York City and Washington DC.  It is a must-visit city for American history! 

Philadelphia is considered an important cultural site due to the high concentration of museums and the amount of exciting events that are scheduled throughout the year. It is a recommended stop for all tourists who love culture, rich historical heritage and, of course, its cuisine. Visiting the city involves trying its tasty and typical sandwich, The Hoagie with sausage, lettuce, pickles, tomato, etc. And, everyone must try the famous Philadelphia Cheesesteak with its thinly sliced meat, sautéed onions, peppers and cheese on a long hoagie roll. 

In this city there are some obligatory stops, present in every free walking tour in Philadelphia worth its salt. The first of these is undoubtedly Independence Hall, since it is where independence - and later the Constitution were debated.  The Liberty Bell is another iconic visit, for its meaning in the fight against slavery.  When not on a walking tour, explore museums such as The Barnes Foundation, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of the American Revolution, the Franklin Institute and the Mutter Museum.  With its wide cultural offerings,  a trip to Philadelphia takes several days to be able to enjoy and complete properly. Other interesting visits are the Reading Terminal Market, the Rocky Steps, the Eastern State Penitentiary and the South Philly sports complex to see some great professional teams in action. 

Given the varied cultural and leisure offerings in the city, it is best to choose one of the free tours in Philadelphia to begin your adventures in this great city.  It is as an excellent alternative to the traditional routes around the city and will give you an overview of all that Philadelphia has to offer!
