My 11-year-old son and I planned a Sunday 1-day trip to visit several locations starting at 10am - 5pm, and the Go Philadelphia All-Inclusive Pass was very convenient and no hassle. We parked where we were going to finish the day and walked to all locations, except an Uber from Mutter to American Revolution Museum: 1) Philadelphia Art Museum (10-11:30am) - excellent; could have spent 2-3 hours on the 3rd floor alone, but had to move on to get to other attractions; we are not huge fans of art, but the armor, paintings, sculptures, and woodwork kept our interest the entire time 2) East State Penitentiary (11:45-1:15pm) - great; very interesting and spent 1.5 hours there when we only planned for 45 minutes. 3) Mutter Museum (2-3pm) - great; many specimens and so much content considering the smaller size of the building 4) American Revolution Museum (3:15-5pm) - great; walk through history that led up to the Revolution, the different battles, and many details from that time period.
Our tour guide, Sarah was funny and informative. Despite it being an insanely cold night in Philly she definitely kept the momentum going with stories I never heard of. Not advised to bring your children as it goes against everything they have learned in their text books in school. I'm glad my husband and I braved the cold to have fun!
Great tour for those who are interested in the history of the city. Our tour guide Josh was very knowledgeable and we were able to learn about important dates in history as well as stand close to where they took place. Definitely recommend.
Segway tour was great. 2 hour tour was the way to go. D was our guide and he was extremely knowledgeable about the area and showed us some amazing stuff. I would recommend him and another Segway tour for the future.
Fantastic walking tour with guide Rick Heimann. He knew his history, he’s a great story teller and I learned more about our nations founders in 2.5 hours than I did in history class!!
