If you are only spending a day in Philly, and want to understand how our Founding Fathers grew our government, this is the tour for you. In an hour and a half you will leisurely walk through the streets visiting sites where our Founding fathers lived and worked and understand how they built our government. Our very knowledgeable guide presented a perfectly orchestrated overview with the right balance of facts and fun information to help bring to light the essence of life during that time in history.
