Welcome to Philadelphia! You must know that there's more to this historic American city than the Liberty Bell and Philly cheese steaks. A knowledgeable local guide is waiting to help you discover all that makes this Quaker City great, on your own private Philadelphia tour.

Independence Square Park has been dubbed "America's most historic square mile." Your guide will impress upon you the significance of this storied area, once the backbone of the U.S. government. See Penn's Landing, Betsy Ross House and Benjamin Franklin's grave. You may be interested in visiting Philly's Chinatown, or perhaps enjoying a picnic in beautiful Fairmont Park, the largest city park in the U.S. After your tour, enjoy a drink in one of Philadelphia's historic taverns - your guide will be able to recommend a few great options.

Whatever your personal interests in this city, your guide can accommodate them on a private Philadelphia tour designed just for you.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
