We just finished private tour with the Constitutional Walking tours of Philadelphia. It was...so-so. The material was interesting but our guide has chosen to give it to us in a
monotone and make it kinda boring. Many of the questions we asked the tour guide did not know. Overall , just like other touristy things - all depends on a guide and this one was OK but just.

This was an interesting, educational, efficient walk of Independence Park & surrounding attractions. The tour guide Tim was knowledgeable about tour-specific and more general Philly historical/current events info. It was a pleasant walk and fun.

This was a two hour walking tour around the historical buildings such as Constitutional Hall, the Liberty Bell, Christ Church and several others. We had a wonderful guide and I learned a lot.

The kids were (with adult help) negotiate a map leading them to the sites. So informative! You really feel as thought you understand that period in history.

Pros: This is a great overview of the history around Philly. Obviously they can't fit in every historic value of the city, but it's a great spot for tourists! The walk is about 1.5 hours and there are so many stops that the walk doesn't feel long and terrible. There were people of all ages in our group, so if you have some elderly folks in your group, this tour will be just fine for them.

Cons: Even though there are stops, we thought it would be a good chance for us to ask other fellow tourists to take pics for us, but time didn't really allot for that. We definitely took pics of the sites we saw, but the tour guide would talk for a few minutes and then just continue walking on to the next site. Of course you could just stay behind a bit to take a quick pic, but it was a continuous walk through out. Another downfall was we didn't get to go inside to take pics with or of the Liberty Bell. I'm not sure if this was just something that happened to our group, but I was a bit disappointed that we didn't go in at all, especially because it's a huge staple of Philly. Instead, we stopped outside the window of the Liberty Bell and he talked about the bell's history.
