We would have liked for Sam to have explained that the reading of the Independence address was going to be held on the 8th
Was disappointed that we didn't get to tour any of the places we visited. Didn't know that when I booked it.
Out tour guide walked way too fast. I felt like we had to run to keep up! Otherwise it was fantastic!
It was all that we had hoped.
it was pretty good but there could be more interesting facts to share so that families could be engaged. It would be great to have a consideration for those kids that are attending.....we had one at Monticello that had physical entities to hand-out to kids to share when the time was appropriate so that they were more engaged during the time together.
Would've been nice to be able to go through some of the historical houses
Debbie was great! Walking distance was great! Being able to go inside the sites would have made this 5 stars.
Tour guide Melissa was very good. Expected better access (e.g. front of line) to Liberty Bell
The tour guide was wonderful. Was very informative. She was great. We never got to the Liberty Bell which was one of the main reasons I went on the tour.
While I enjoyed the walking tour, a friend had a hard time keeping the pace the guide set. There was little to no time to take unobstructed pictures, and I feel, a map of the tour should have been handed out.

I enjoyed the walk but it was not what I was hoping it would be. I would not recommend it to anyone who actually wants to see inside some of the buildings. You're better off getting a map and seeing the sights for yourself. Most everything you would want to see is free but you do need to watch your time, some places close earlier than others.
As we were participating in the tour, we saw other visitors going into some of the historical buildings and we wished that our tour included this as well. The information that was conveyed on the tour was stellar however. It may be a great enhancement to have the tour guide tell us about the individual buildings from the inside of the buildings as the street noise made it next to impossible to hear the tour guide at times.
Noah was very knowledgeable about the history of the city.
Guide was personable and made a point to interact with each of us. She gladly answered questions and rolled with it like a pro when another, louder guide showed up at the same quiet spot. My son learned many new things and had a great time. I only wish there had been a bit more for someone like myself, a wannabe history student.
The tour guide was very informative and we learned quite a lot. The only drawback was there wasn't enough time to take pictures.
Informative, easy, good guide
Tour guide Van Jessica was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and had a sense of humor. It was a small group, so we could easily hear her.
This tour provides a good overview of the important sites relating to the founding of our country and its government. If one should want to dig deeper into a particular location he has a good initial basis to do so on his own. The guide was pleasant, informative and professional. The price is reasonable.
friendly guide. very informative and happy to answer any questions
I was hoping that we would have a little time during the presentation to go inside some of the buildings that we saw during the tour.
Sam did a good job keepng the pace and imparting a lot of really great information. He could have been a bit more knowledgable about some facts about Ben Franklin, like how many children he had and why his wife was considered "common law". Also, it would have been nice to learn where the marble for the pillars in front of the Portrait Gallery came from.
Noah is great! He's enthusiastic and very knowledgable about the history of the city. (E Upbeat even in the rain!! ) He made a great connection with my son as well.
Very knowledgeable guide who wanted to have us appreciate the founding of our country.
Our tour guide was great! He was very interesting and informative about not only the history of Philadelphia, but the place to get the best cheesesteak!!
Nathan did a great job pointing outvand informing us of all 21 sights.
We learned a lot. Out tour guide Melissa was very knowledgeable. My teenage girls were very engaged because of our tour guide.
Good guide very knowledgable. Would help guide to remember people want pictures after hearing description so needs to pause for a few additional seconds.
Great experience. We took this tour with Jason as our guide and learned a lot of new facts about Philadelphia.
Jason was our tour guide and was extremely knowledgeable. He made the Constitutional Walking Tour a great experience.
There wasn't access to even one building on the tour which I thought there would be. Our tour guide was very good but it all seemed a bit rushed
Took this tour with visiting friends from Australia and it was just perfect. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Even though I was born and raised in Philadelphia, I learned a lot too.
Jenna was very knowledgable, personable, and pleasant. I learned several things I did not know before! Thanks.
