Discover the diversity of Philly in the best way possible — local style! This private experience combines three of our top-selling Philadelphia tours (Markets, Mosaics & Magic, History in HD, and Philly on Tap), giving you one epic all-day adventure! You’ll start your Total Philly Tour exploring the ever-colorful South Street, then into the Bella Vista neighborhood for a glimpse of some beautiful mosaics. From there, we’ll hit up the oh-so-tempting tastes of the famous Italian market! Wander past the myriad of local stores carrying everything from cheese to chocolate, as well as the city’s best bakeries, butcher shops, and produce stalls.  We'll continue with Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, which showcase the mosaic art of Isaiah Zagar. This amazing place includes a fully mosaicked indoor gallery and a massive outdoor labyrinthine mosaic structure.  From there, discover Philly’s eclectic and dynamic South Street, as well as one of the country’s most historic neighborhoods, Queen Village. If you’re hungry, you’ll have a chance to pick up some lunch and rest your feet.  Your guide will have plenty of great recommendations.    Next, you’ll visit those unmissable Philly sights. We’ll weave through the charming back alleys of Old City, and down the oldest continuously occupied residential street in the country.  You'll get some great views of the site of Ben Franklin's home as the tour continues through Philly’s Historic District. You’ll be greeted with views of Independence Mall, the National Constitution Center, and the U.S. Mint. We’ll also pass the Liberty Bell, where we might get a chance to go inside for pictures. Then off to Washington Square for stories of William Penn. We continue through Independence National Park and the must-see front yard of Independence Hall, sight of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. In our opinion, there are few better ways to get to know a city than over a beer with a local. So, we'll choose from some of the most popular drinking establishments in the city. We’ll have the option to visit the oldest continuously operating bar in Philadelphia, a classic dive bar, an Irish pub with local flair, a modern beer café, and many other neighbourhood bars and pubs. One drink at each bar is included with the tour, as well as a pub or street snack.  After happy hour, end your private Philadelphia tour at the tour's final pub. From there you’ll be able to continue on your own Philly beer journey, grab some dinner at one of Philadelphia's many great restaurants nearby, or head straight back to your new favourite Philadelphia pub. (If you’d prefer to travel as part of a regular group experience, please book our Total Philly group tour.) This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
