Host City
Affectionately referred to as The City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia is notable for its rich history, on display at the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed) and other American Revolutionary sites. Also iconic are the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, immortalized by Sylvester Stallone’s triumphant run in the film "Rocky."

Philadelphia Then & Now, is a fully-guided tour through four centuries of art, architecture and Philadelphia’s growth to the 2nd largest city on the east coast. Before beginning the tour, guests will have lunch at Reading Terminal Market (lunch included). After lunch, we’ll explore the period before and up to 1776, and hear the stories of the people, places and things that made Colonial Philadelphia the seat of government for the young nation and one of the largest English speaking cities in the world.

See such sites as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Carpenters’ Hall (site of the First Continental Congress in 1774), Betsy Ross House, Franklin’s grave and Elfreth’s Alley. Embracing the modern day, we will visit neighborhoods where the Founding Fathers’ lived and see how contemporary Philadelphians have made them their own.  

Going beyond the colonial period, we will visit the bustling business district, Museum Mile of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the famous Rocky steps, Philadelphia’s vibrant theater district and much more including the captivating Comcast Experience, the world’s largest 4mm flat screen television with its breathtaking show.
