The 18th-century-garbed guides leading the Franklin's Footsteps Walking Tour illuminate the sights, sounds, and buckled shoes of the Philadelphia that our Founding Fathers experienced. Customers can don an era-appropriate tricornered hat or eight-cornered head cube before convening with up to 24 others at the sightseeing tour kiosk in the Independence Visitor Center, and setting out to see more than 30 different historical sites in approximately 75 minutes. Highlights of the revolutionary romp include the Liberty Bell, the Betsy Ross House— where the first American flag and political bumper sticker were made— and Christ Church burial ground—where Benjamin Franklin and many other historical figures were laid to rest. Weather permitting, the tour departs daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m., with more frequent departures on the weekends.
Philadelphia Trolley Works
Ever since the first giant pumpkin was carved into a carriage, people have wanted to travel in style. Philadelphia Trolley Works, a subsidiary of 76 Carriage Company, turns fairy tales into reality with a fleet of double-decker buses, motor coaches, horse-driven carriages, and their namesake trolleys. On any given day, the historic streets of Philadelphia pulse with trolley or horse-pulled tours of Independence Hall and the Rocky steps. Cinderella-inspired horse-drawn carriages and Victorian-style trolleys transport bridal parties to weddings, and jumbo-sized motor coaches can be rented for casino trips and cross-country air-guitar tours.
