Foundations of Freedom Tour
Follow in the footsteps of Philadelphia's and America's Founding Fathers and learn about the American Experiment and how the vision of William Penn, Benjamin Franklin, and other iconic names from history shaped the city and the nation. Unlike other tours that drone on and on with nothing but useless facts and jump around from century to century, our Foundations of Freedom tour will guide you through the development of Philadelphia and America through rich storytelling, all while weaving together a coherent and entertaining story of the city's birth, growth, expansion, and ultimate destination as the birthplace of freedom and the city of firsts. We will SEEK to understand the ideas that made the city and country unique, EXPLORE the most iconic locations in Colonial Philadelphia as we build a story together of the city's and nations's history, and WANDER around hidden alleys and famous landmarks as we contemplate the legacy left to us.
Put on those walking shoes, grab a bottle of water, and bring a friend or two!
