Celebrate the July 4th week with The Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia. Visitors to Philadelphia this holiday week will be able to follow in the Founding Fathers’ footsteps with The Constitutional Guided Walking Tour. Philadelphia is best seen by foot, and The Constitutional Walking Tour, Philadelphia’s best sightseeing tour experience, returns and offers visitors the unique opportunity to follow in the Founding Fathers’ footsteps.
The Constitutional Guided Walking Tour is a 75 minute, 1.25 mile outdoor walking adventure in the Independence National Historical Park area which features many historical sites such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the National Constitution Center and the Betsy Ross House. As such, The Constitutional provides Philadelphia’s visitors with a primary overview of Independence National Historical Park which enables them to decide which sites and attractions to visit in more depth during their stay. Come see why the Chicago Tribune has stated, “No visit to Philadelphia is complete without taking a Constitutional Guided Walking Tour, a 75-minute, mile and a quarter stroll that puts 15 historic sites, from Independence Hall to the National Constitution Center, and Ben Franklin, in perspective.”
