General Itinerary – 1-Hour Segway Tour of Philadelphia

The beginning of your tour starts directly next to the beautiful Delaware River. Here, you’ll get a wonderful panoramic view of New Jersey and The Benjamin Franklin Bridge. As you glide up Race Street, you’ll enjoy one of the most photographed streets in America, Elfreth’s Alley. Continue along thru Old City, the original neighborhood of Philadelphia, now home to art studios and galleries. Roll along and find yourself in the Queen Village section, an historic local neighborhood normally overlooked by travelers.

Then, travel through the iconic Italian Market (very popular with fans of the Rocky movies) before you experience the eclectic South Street – viewing the Philadelphia Magic Gardens and several blocks along this historic street. Your next neighborhood to explore is Society Hill with gorgeous historic homes, the nation’s first hospital (Penn Hospital), and quaint, quiet streets.

Finally, head through the Independence Mall area, along Race Street, and back to our location next to the Delaware river.

We make safety a high priority on your adventure, and we know you’ll return with a much greater appreciation of the city by the end of your exciting 1-Hour Segway PT Tour of Philadelphia.

General Itinerary – History Tour of Philadelphia

Start your Philadelphia History tour behind the Religious Liberty Statue just outside the National Museum of American Jewish History, where you’ll meet your guide and begin your Best. Day. Ever.

From here, we’ll take you back to the time of our nation’s founding, weaving your way through Independence National Park. Your guide will share knowledge of the most significant sites of the park, such as Independence Hall, Congress Hall, and Old City Hall, among other sites that were instrumental in establishing many of the country’s first institutions and ideologies.

Continue this Philadelphia city tour to a spot where (on weekdays only) we can grab a view of Maxfield Parrish’s ‘Dream Garden’ mosaic mural and a possible excursion into Washington Square for stories of Philadelphia founder William Penn.

We then pass the Liberty Bell, where you’ll hear about why this iconic symbol has become so famous all around the world. Just next door, you’ll enter the President’s House site, home to George Washington and John Adams during Philly’s tenure as our nation’s capital. You’ll stroll up through the grand stretch of Independence Mall, home to Independence Visitor Center, the National Constitution Center, the Bourse, and the U.S. Mint.

After passing by the gravesite of the city’s most renowned inventor, Ben Franklin, you’ll enter the charming back alleys of Old City with its unique art galleries, trendy cafés, and fascinating industrial architecture and where you’ll have the chance to grab a quick snack or a drink and relax with your guide — the perfect opportunity to ask any pressing questions you may have about things to do in the neighborhood after the tour.

Continue to be immersed in history as you venture past the Betsy Ross House and then down Elfreth’s Alley, the street famous for being the oldest continuously occupied residential street in the country.

Next, you may be treated to a visit inside Christ Church, where you’ll hear stories of our founding fathers, sit where they sat, and learn about the birth of the Episcopal Church in America.

As this Philadelphia tour winds down, your guide will take you to their favorite local bar or restaurant. You’ll get a craft beer (or soft drink if you wish) included in the price of the tour, and we’ll say cheers to the beautiful city of Philadelphia!
