The Constitutional Walking Tour was organized and enjoyable! Melissa was our tour guide and she did a fantastic job engaging the students and teaching them little known facts about Colonial America, the Founding Fathers and the American Revolution. We only had about 2.5-3 hours to spend in Philly and this tour perfectly fit into our time schedule. The tour was... More

Benjamin Franklin (aka Mitchell Kramer) was the tour guide and completely in character. Asked where you were from and what you did for a living and tailoring the tour to the group of 6. Interesting and informative. A great way to learn about American history. My 23 year old daughter and her boyfriend enjoyed it and are not normally interested... More

Definitely a fast paced tour. We had an eight and five year old and it got to be a little much for the 5 year old. When they say you don't go into the places, they mean it. You literally stop for a second and then move on. It we took a picture we were left behind. We ended going... More

This was a great field trip for my students to really see first hand what we talked about in school. The guide was very knowledgeable and patient when they had questions for him. I would highly recommend this for age groups 3rd-6th grade levels.

Our tour was 75 minutes. We stopped at approx 10 places. At each place our guide had a short 1-2 minute comment. The rest of the time he walked ahead of the group onto the next site. The map I picked up at the AAA office for free gave more information then the guide. Would not recommend this tour!!

Enjoyed the tour very much. Highly recommend doing this tour first before visiting the historic place. Our guide Jason set the stage for visiting the locations afterwards. This tour helps to get you antiquated with the area so you can truly explore the riches that Philadelphia has to offer. Jason was informative and friendly.

I've been going on this tour every year with my students. It's a great trip and the tour guides were very knowledgeable about the topics they discussed. I would definitely recommend others to go on this tour.
