Vad du kommer att göra

With over a 300 year history, from the Revolutionary War to its revitalization in the past 50 years, come experience Philadelphia with me. This is an historic events tour with an architectural twist.

Every building has a story to tell, from the materials, technology, and styles favored when it was constructed, to the people who designed, built, lived and worked there. Events of historic proportion take place in and around buildings as well. Come with me on this journey to discover all the secrets each building on our tour is waiting to tell us. This tour is also great for groups, teams and team building!

We will be walking through Old City and Society Hill, visiting the oldest continuously inhabited residential street in the United States, and seeing the same buildings the Founding Fathers worked and worshiped in. Whether your interest is architecture, American History, visiting the places where Ben Franklin and George Washington lived and worked, or humming a tune from the Hamilton play as we experience Philadelphia as the Capitol of the United States, this tour is for you!
Other things to note
Bring cameras as there is much to photograph. Snacks that you like are good to have, or there are plenty of stores along the way. A hat and comfortable shoes are also a good idea to wear.

I am a Registered Architect who has lived in the City of Philadelphia since 1978. After taking a walking tour with famed City Planner Ed Bacon, I was inspired to give similar experiences of the city.
Currently residing in the Old City area of Philadelphia, I would love to introduce you to the only World Heritage City in the U.S.

Superb experience! Reid is super-knowledgeable. Also a really nice person. I can only recommend this experience, you'll learn a ton about Philly's history and architecture.

The 3 hour Philly architectural walking tour was everything we hoped it would be. And more! There were only two of us which made it a very personal experience. Reid was incredibly knowledgeable about the historic importance of the buildings we were viewing as well as the building styles and architectural details. Most importantly Reid was happy to answer all of our many many questions. The pace was perfect, the day was beautiful and Reid made (re)learning American history and the architecture of the old city really fun. Highly recommend this tour!

This was an amazing tour. Reid was so knowledgeable and sole very clearly and in detail about historical events and how they relate to architecture. I expected this tour to be dry but it was anything but dry. A 3 hour walking tour sounds like a lot but it was not bad at all. I would highly recommend this tour with Reid if you want to learn more about American history, Pennsylvania history, and how it ties in with architecture.
