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 occupied 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!

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.

Reids enthusiasm for colonial history, life and the architecture was complete and infectious. He had all four of us diving right into colonial Philadelphia with his knowledge of the facts and his recollections of the colonial history and politics. Sprinkled throughout the tour were lively stories from the lives of Ben Franklin, Hamilton, William Penn and many of the other actors. He is the best!

Fantastic walking tour of colonial Philly. Our host, Reid, was incredibly knowledgeable of both the history and architecture of old philadelphia buildings and could turn that history into stories that kept us eagerly listening for the full 2 hours.

Reid has a ton of interesting knowledge about the people and places in Philadelphia’s colonial history. He is a good storyteller and brings history to life. 2 hours was plenty, but we wished we had booked a 3 Hour tour

If you like history, this should be your start of exploring Philadelphia (and Pennsylvania). From Colonial Period to Independence, from the founders of America and also from different architectural style, Reid shows his passion on Art and History. Strongly Recommend!

Highly recommend this tour! Very interesting and unique. Reid is very knowledgeable and personable. Loved that it that his tours are for a small group.

What Reid provides is mainly a history tour, but he employs his background in architecture to explain history through building design. Very friendly and unassuming. Good sense of humor, especially when describing sometimes-failed past government efforts to promote historical sites.
