Vad du kommer att göra

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.

We will be walking through Old City, 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! This tour is also great for groups, teams and team building!
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.

Reid was an amazing tour host and storyteller! You won't regret taking a tour with him. He has an architectural background and incorporated that knowledge into his retelling of Colonial Philadelphia history. That's something you're not likely to get from another tour. He explained the area's history in a way that was easy to understand and remember. I finished the tour and a few hours later shared the images to social media for my family and friends. I was able to recount the story and significance of every single building or object in the photos, much to my surprise. A huge thank you to Reid for allowing us to book at the last minute and for accommodating us today (and answering all our questions, even ones about your favorite places to eat...we did manage to eat at one of those you suggested and it was great).

Reid shares a combination of architectural and historical references, delivered thoughtfully and wittily. Not surface level stuff —pay attention and you’ll get a lot out of it!

Reid was great - he knows his subject and was a pleasure to have as an insider to guide me in Old Philadelphia. You won’t go wrong with his kind attitude and sense of humor!

Reid’s story telling, highlights of people, places, events, with a focus on architecture made for a wonderful tour at the right pace. I’m taking away a true appreciation for this beautiful city, and everything it stands for. Thank you Reid!

Reid is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide and the tour was filled with relatable stories about historical figures. I would have appreciated a more interactive experience with time for questions from participants, vs a monologue.
