Jason, was a phenomenal tour guide. The information presented along with the tour was amazing. I love the fact that we went off the beaten path and saw places that would have never been seen on my own. Please go, you will enjoy the tour.
The tour begins at the Clothes Pin sculpture at the intersection of Market and 15th Streets, opposite Philadelphia's City Hall, the cultural and geographic heart of Center City Philadelphia. Head east and walk straight into a concert at the Wanamaker Building, where, on most days, you'll hear a performance of the world's largest pipe organ. After the concert, we head to the historic Reading Railroad Terminal and then downstairs to enjoy whatever your appetite desires at the dynamic Reading Terminal Market.
From the Market, we head to Love Park for one of Philly's best photo ops and a chance for some more food and if we're lucky, dessert at the cupcake truck. We then head up the Ben Franklin Parkway lined with flags from all around the world. Logan Square is our next stop, and we'll walk into the breathtaking Basilica of St. Peter & St. Paul, across the square and the Swann Fountain, and into the grand lobby of the Franklin Institute.
The tour continues to one of the newest attractions in Philly, the massive LED TV screen at The Comcast Building. From there, we enter one of Philly's biggest shopping and restaurant districts. You'll be introduced to an iconic Italian cheese shop, followed by a stop at the Philly Pretzel Factory for a snack of a hot soft Philly pretzel.
The tour brings you to Broad Street, aka Avenue of the Arts. Here, you'll get a sense of some classic and modern architecture from Philly's banks, hotels, theatres, and social clubs. You'll stroll into Midtown Village and view a few of Philly's fantastic public murals.
After the murals, stop at one of Philly's newest theatres, the Kimmel Center. You'll then have a chance to cool down with water ice, a classic Philadelphia treat as we walk through the beautiful residential neighborhood of Rittenhouse. The tour concludes at Rittenhouse Square, at the intersection of 18th St. and Walnut St., where you'll have a chance to continue eating, shopping and exploring on your own.
This tour lasts approximately three hours.
