General Itinerary

Get into the festive spirit on this Christmas tour in Philadelphia that will have you ho ho ho-ing all the way home! We’ll have you feeling festive in no time — trust us!

Your Philly tour begins at Philadelphia’s City Hall, the cultural and geographic heart of Philadelphia’s city center. After you’ve met your guide, you’re introduced to Dilworth Park as you watch ice skaters with the iconic City Hall as the backdrop. We walk from there up to a historic railroad terminal and head downstairs to one of the country’s largest and most historic indoor markets. Here, you see a seriously impressive model train set displayed for the holidays, which is sure to take you right back to your childhood and fill you with that festive feeling of wonder.

Next, we arrive at a holiday light and sound show featuring the world’s largest pipe organ, a show that has delighted generations of Philadelphians during the holiday season.

From there, we enter one of Philly’s biggest shopping and restaurant districts. This neighborhood is always buzzing at this time of year, and as you stroll, you catch some views of the fantastic holiday window displays. The tour continues toward Rittenhouse Square, where you see the beautiful Christmas tree and a view of the church where one of our favorite Christmas carols was written and first performed.

Your Philadelphia city tour continues to one of the newest attractions in the city. You’re treated to a spectacular holiday show from one of the world’s largest LED TV screens inside one of Philly’s newest skyscrapers.

After the show, we walk toward the Ben Franklin Parkway with views of Logan Square, Sister Cities Park, and the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul, a Christmas destination for many Catholics in the Philadelphia area.

The holiday tour concludes at an iconic public park for one of Philly’s fastest growing traditions. Here, you visit a traditional outdoor Christmas village, and have a chance to explore this winter wonderland (and be tempted by the many holiday food and drink choices!). From here, you have a chance to continue eating, shopping, and exploring, and basking in the holiday spirit of Philadelphia.
