Would have preferred to have gone into some sughts
I thought we would be going into the building not just standing in front of them talking about them. Appreciated all the history knowledge.
Our tour guide was great! Lots of information, and a great personality. I think adding another 30 minutes so that you could fast pass inside the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall and the experience would be outstanding!
Connor, our tour guide, was super knowledgeable and amazing. We loved this tour.
I feel Having the scavenger hunt materials during the tour would have the students more focused through the tour. The short time available afterwards was not sufficient to get to enough locations to make it to many places.
I was expecting to have a few minutes at each stop to explore a bit inside. (Like we did in DC). For the places without lines of course, to keep the group moving along. I would be just fine have a 2 hour tour in order to allow the time to visit through the places. I was only able to come for a short time. With a 2pm tour and museums closing at 4:30 or 5 didn't give me the time needed to really enjoy Philly.
Thought we were going inside some of the areas talked about or seen. For instance, the liberty bell. Not just see it from outside the window.
Our guide was amazing! She was super knowledgeable and her love of the city of Philadelphia really shone through. That made the tour extra special! Would highly recommend this your with our tour guide
Tour guide Melissa was great. I didn’t give 5 stars only bc I thought we would have access to the sites we were seeing. Specifically I was looking forward to the liberty bell, not realizing the tour was only taking us by it and not up close. Post tour, I understand timing and why it wouldn’t be possible, my recommendation is to make that more clear in the description of the tour. Or, work out a process by which the tour participants can get into the front of the line at the liberty bell and get access.
Our tour guide was great. I thought we would have gone into some of the building to see what they looked like rather than stand outside and have the inside described to us.
Kate was very knowledgeable and pleasant and I, having been brought up in Philadelphia
Learned a lot, along with my company from Florida
VJ was enthusiastic as well as knowledgeable. The tour provided an excellent overview with some backstory on the rich history of old Philadelphia. Thoroughly enjoyed our introduction to the city.
This was a very nice overview of the historical sites of Philadelphia. The tour guide was very good. Was disappointed that we were not taken into Independence Hall or the Liberty Bell Center. If you like a more in-depth historical tour you would have to do it on your own.
The guide set a fast walking pace from one stop to another - hard to keep up. Disappointed in the political bent of the presentation at some of the stops. The best part was the factual information and the knowledge demonstrated through anecdotal stories the guide had of Betsy Ross, Ben Franklin, and the Liberty Bell.
VanJessica was tremendous! You need to find a way to keep her! Even if part-time. Her command of historical and literary detail was impressive but she wove some great themes throughout the tour. Impactful.

It was great, Melissa was a great tour guide and explained things in way that we wanted to hear more and more.
So this was a great overview of historic Philadelphia, thoroughly enjoyed it. The morning was gorgeous and the walk was easy,actually really nice. We picked several sites and went back once the tour was over for extended time at those. Glad that Nathan was our guide, he was upbeat, personable, and threw in a few good quotes from some of the historical figures he was speaking about, nice theatrical flare. Big thumbs up from our group.
Lots of information was provided. Your would have been more enjoyable had we actually gotten to go into places. Pace could be adjusted to better suit physical limitations of guest.
The tour guide, Conner, was knowledgeable, articulate, and personable. We proceeded at steady pace that seemed to be tolerable for everyone in the group. I tossed some "fun facts" at Conner which he countered with obscure facts of his own. Since I am a retired history teacher I was so happy to converse with an American who actually knew their history. Conner also has a keen sense of humor which he was not shy to share.
I will certainly recommend your walking tour to others.

Tour guides walked too fast for the group of students , teachers and parents to keep up.
The tour was a great overview of the sites. Would have liked to hear more history and historical stories from our tour guide. However, Van was great and got all of the kids involved.
