A Trip Back Through Time

Did you know Philadelphia is the home of the oldest continually-inhabited residential street in America? Elfreth's Alley in the Old City has homes dating back to 1702.

Take a closer look at the lives, lore, and legends of the people, both famous and infamous, who have shaped America while following their footsteps on the very same cobblestones they strolled. From the ashes of revolution to the fierce rivalries and scandals that erupted even as our nation's foundations were laid, delve into the history and landmarks of the city where our constitution was hammered out and our republic was forged in the heat of debate.

Our Philadelphia Patriots and Founders History Tour offers a more intimate exploration of the grounds and landmarks where the American Experiment played out in the early days of the country.

Professional guides will introduce you to landmarks you may have heard of in school, but have never before seen like this- the authentic locations where greatness and avarice, ideals and idiosyncrasies all mingled together to conjure up the notion of a nation better than the sum of its parts.

Join us to explore the iconic and less well-known historical buildings and important sites of Philadelphia, and picture yourself there at a time when our Founding Fathers walked the streets of the most exciting city in the world. 

"Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can."
