Recommend this tour! Nathan our guide was entertaining as he told the tale of our nations history. This is a brief and quick 75 min for $19. It takes you outside the main historical places. To see those places in more detail you will have to go back. I didn't mind this. It gave me a recap and now I... More

I felt the tour was okay for the price. I got the impression and booked the tour because I thought that we would be visiting the sights (IE...going into the historic buildings) this is NOT the case. The tour guide just walks you to the sight and gives a very brief and simple description of the history of that sight.... More

Thanks so much for your feedback. We are clear on our web site and in our marketing that the tour is an outdoor walking journey and that we stop at more than 20 sites from the outside. It is meant to be an overview and orientation so people can get a taste for what is in Philadelphia, as well as... More

I thought the tour was worth the price, but was hoping to learn more in-depth information. Our guide seemed to focus on the fact that some of the founding fathers owned slaves rather than anything they accomplished while n Philadelphia.

I came to Philly fora break and that's exactly what I got with this tour. Our tour guide Melissa was amazing, very knowledgeable, answered all questions and offered all needed explanations. The walk was pleasant, under great weather and simply educational. I will be back for their ghost tour.

I was flying into Philly for a business trip this weekend, and decided to bring my 10 yr old daughter along and book a private tour to see the historical sites in the city. My daughter has currently been studying the portion of U.S. history forged in Philadelphia so it was as like history came alive for her. I learned... More

I was in Philadelphia in December. It was a once in a lifetime trip for me, I was treated to an incredible Constitutional Walking tour experience, just for me. Even in the off season it was an amazing and informative tour of Philadelphia. Twinkle lights and Christmas decorations were a nice added touch. Jason was very kind and very knowledgeable... More

I highly recommend the Constitutional Walk for any history buff or family. Amazing to see all the buildings preserved and think about our founding father's and mother's (Betsy Ross included:)

We met Deborah at the stone benches and we left promptly at 10:00. We made many stops along the way where she told us history facts that I had never heard before. She made many good suggestions about places we could come back and visit after the tour. I would definite recommend this tour.

I bought the walking tour MP3. The instructions were complex, and I was unable to download to my cell phone. A total waste of money. I tried to call to get assistance- at 11 AM in the morning there was nobody to take the call, only a message. Do not waste your money on this scam

Thanks for posting your review. This page is for reviews of our live guided tours, not the audio tour. I am sorry you had trouble with the download. Please email me at info@theconstitutional.com so we can process a refund. Perhaps next time you are in town you'll consider a live guided tour. Thanks! More
