Adult Ages 13+
Child Ages 10 & Under

Experience Old City Philadelphia!

Philadelphia is known for declaring independence, but what came after? Your professional tour guide will answer that very question as they guide you through the expanding early Philadelphia from Independence Hall to South Street. You will see Carpenter’s Hall, the site of the first Continental Congress, the Second Bank of the United States, a short lived federal economic experiment, Washington Square Park, one of William Penn’s original parks and home of the Revolutionary War Unknown Soldier, Pennsylvania Hospital, one of the earliest established public hospitals, Mother Bethel A.M.E Church, the oldest church property in the US continuously owned by African Americans, and South Street, the original southern edge of the city and a place of beginnings for many immigrants.

This tour consists of about 1.5 miles of walking and runs rain or shine.

This 90-minute tour departs from Philadelphia Sightseeing Tour Stop #1 at 5th and Market Streets and ends at 3rd and South Streets, close to lots of shopping as well as famous cheesesteak and pizza restaurants.
