618 reviews
Philadelphia was the first capital of the United States, and is home to many major historical monuments and landmarks. On this intimate walking tour, see most of Philadelphia’s essential sights, all while learning about the City of Brotherly Love’s history from your guide. In the company of a small group, see Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross, Franklin Court, and more, and wind down with a cold beverage in Old City.

After hearing about the creation and signing of the US Constitution, be sure to visit Congress Hall to see where they put it into practice. The Senate (2nd floor) is currently closed due to COVID, but you can enter and view the original House of Representatives of the US. It is also the site of John Adam’s inauguration as the country’s second President.

A part of the old Independence Hall (Old Pennsylvania Capitol Building). During my visit only the Independence Hall was open for public. The Congress Hall is located on 6th Street side which make the whole compound completed with the Old City Hall on the other side of the Independence Hall. Good piece of history.

This place was simply amazing. I had the opportunity to take my 14-year-old in and see the history, the events and just the aura that was in the building.

You don't need a ticket to visit this place. Just go thought security to the Independence Hall and wait outside the Congress Hall for the 20s. It's only 20 mins but definitely worth it for the interesting facts and historical lessons.
