Informative guides lead groups of up to 12 around Center City, where they’ll gaze at the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul and the Comcast Center's massive LED screen, taste food at the Reading Terminal Market, view some of the city's colorful murals, and hear music from the world's largest pipe organ. Tours often reach full capacity, so booking early is recommended.
