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 gave an amazing tour! Jam packed with history and some great humour. I really knew very little on this subject going in and was enlightened by his wonderful storytelling. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed touring old Philadelphia with Reid. His passion for architecture and the city was infectious, and the way that he told stories about William Penn, Benjamin Franklin, etc, truly brought history to life. This tour is an excellent way to learn about the history and architecture of this wonderful city, and I would certainly recommend it to anybody.

Reid’s tour was a highlight of our Philly trip. He presented a wealth of information and contextualized the past with the present in very astute and entertaining ways. I will definitely be looking into his other tours next time I return!
