We could only spend one morning in the city and going on this walking tour with Thomas was THE BEST choice we could have made! He is so knowledgeable, skillful and passionate that the tour flies by while you immerse in the history of the city. We would definetly recommend the tour with Tom! (Thank you!)

We were a family of 1 adult and 3 youngsters and Thomas is so didactic explaining everything and keeping everybody's attention with quiz games and jokes and is also so passionate that he spread the same passion for the history of his country to the rest of the group. He's a super professional and you'll enjoy his tour for sure.

Tom was incredibly knowledgeable about the city of Philadelphia! He kept the group motivated and moving through the historic district. He gave great tips on where we could go afterwards and even shared a webpage he created with tips. Even though it was a very hot day, Tom found us shade everywhere possible and was very cognizant of our needs. I would HIGHLY recommend Tom and this tour!

Knowledgeable and friendly. Expert at walking backwards and talking. Had interesting history stories beyond the obvious facts and highlighted some lesser known characters like Deborah Read, Franklin’s common law wife.. Catered to different interests and backgrounds of the group. Also brought strawberry/basil infused water which was delicious. Top rating!

Tom did a fantastic job showing us the historic sights of Philadelphia. He is very enthusiastic and friendly. The Tour was very interactive (rewarded us with little candy when we knew the answers to his questions and also when we didn't). He provided water (also water with basel and strawberry flavor - self made) and pennies to through on B.F. grave to make a wish. In total the Tour was very fun, entertaining and informative. If you get the chance to visit Philly make sure to book a free walking tour with Tom .

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!
