Vad du kommer att göra

Now with social-distancing and face masks required !!
On this 2 to 2 1/2 hour walking tour we will follow the path of the original settlers of Philadelphia. Early Philadelphia looked very different from today's metropolis. The river was twice as wide and populated with many small islands. This tour will be illustrated with many rare images of the 18th Century waterfront. Learn the history of the waterfront and the early inhabitants
Tour starts at Penn’s Welcome Park where you will learn the details about William Penn, the founding of Philadelphia and how the original Philadelphia was laid out. As well as the role that the waterfront played in its development.
Some interesting sites along the way that are 'newer' than 1776 will also be discussed.
Note that the folks that enjoy this tour the most are those that have an interest in early Philadelphia. No prior knowledge is required. The tour doesn't attempt to cover major events in Philadelphia like the signing of the Declaration of Independence
Other things to note
This walk runs rain or shine and we walk about 2 1/2 miles.

Nick’s tour was so informative and entertaining! We really love how Nick took us to places that normal tours wouldn’t cover. Nick was pleasant and very interactive. It felt as if we were getting shown the real Philadelphia by an old friend. If you only do one thing in Philadelphia, make sure you join Nick on a tour!

Very very informative! A great guide through the streets and history of Philadelphia, delivering information and knowledge with slight sense of sarcasm. Would definitely recommend!

This was a very interesting walk. It’s fun to learn about this area from a different perspective. Nick has a number of visuals aids showing “then”as compared to “now”. I am pleased that the walk didn’t get canceled since I was the lone participant this time.

It's an off-the-beaten track story of Philadelphia's history. If you want to learn things you won't learn from other tours/museums, check this one out!
