Philadelphia 7 day *TOUR GUIDE ONLY option*

Description

What are some of the historical "firsts" that happened in Philadelphia? How much does the Liberty Bell weigh? How many years of formal education did Benjamin Franklin have? What was Betsy Ross's age when she sewed the flag? What is the oldest residential street in the country? Which cheesesteak is the best in the city - Pat's or Geno's? What happened at Valley Forge? Discover the answer to all of these questions and more by joining us on our next family group tour in Philadelphia!

Why take this tour?

Family-friendly itinerary – Our itinerary is thoughtfully designed to be engaging for all ages, so no need to worry about how to keep guests of multiple ages engaged. Younger guests will be too busy and having too much fun to have time to drive each other crazy – and that’s a win-win for everyone!

Balance of free time and group time – We want you to go home refreshed and relaxed, so with a few hours of free time built into most day’s schedule, your family will have plenty of time to explore on your own, shop, eat, lay by the pool, or just take a nap without missing anything!

Small group sizes – Our group sizes are at least 8 people with a maximum of 20 people. The average group size is 12 guests. These small groups allow us flexibility and the ability to see and do things bigger groups can’t. Plus, it’s easier to make new friends in a smaller group!

Tiered pricing – Designed to be more affordable for those who just want itinerary and tour guide services, we offer 3 pricing tiers based on the number of paying guests in your group - see details below. The larger your group (up to 30), the less you pay!
