Joseph made it possible to enjoy the tour very much by adding fun facts and inspiring little known stories about the city. The tour could've been much much longer but he's doing his best to keep it as brief as possible. He can talk hours...More

Joe was my guide at "Independence Mall Tour Philly 10:30am (2.5 hours)". He was just amazing! He knows a lot of interesting details of the history... And he was able to talk about taxes in an incredibly interesting way! I super recommend this walking tour!

Response from Brian C | Reviewed this property |
It is called the Free Tours on Foot "Independence Hall tour" It was fabulous and we learned all about the history of our nation along with the history of Philadelphia.
How much money do participants normally give the tour guide?

We had private tours with the company and were very pleased! Our two-three hour private tours were a little over $200. Well worth it! Some in our group also tipped the guides.
Can we get a private tour at 2 or 3 pm today of south Philadelphia. Murals. Mosaics ?

You would have to contact the firm. The mosaics and murals are included in the real Philly tour. Look in the free by foot schedule to see when the tour is running. The tour is 4.5 hours long and is very interesting.
