What To Expect
Before starting the tour, our trained guides will make you feel comfortable and safe on the segway. Learn the basics and after about 30 minutes of training, you'll be leaving with your group and head towards one of the most famous blocks in the city, the home of Carpenter's Hall.
We'll take you down to Penn's Landing, which offers spectacular views over New Jersey and out to the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Pass through the Historic District and see Elfreth's Alley, the Betsy Ross House, Franklin's grave and the Independence Hall before you pass into Society Hill. The architecture of the stately homes here will be a feast for the eyes and the aroma from the many coffee shops and restaurants along the way will inspire your senses!
We then continue to the Avenue of the Arts on the way to Rittenhouse Square before winding through the Fitler Square neighborhood to the Schuylkill River.
The scenery changes again here as you work your way along the paths of Schuylkill Banks with the countless other runners, walkers and bikers towards the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Great views over the boat houses and of the water works will give your guide plenty of opportunity to take photos with you as the main feature!
The statue of Rocky adorns the area at the bottom of the famous steps that he ran in 1976 and perhaps your guide will give the chance to run the steps before you head on to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Here you'll find the Tinker by Auguste Rodin and the famous Barnes Foundation, as well as Logan Circle.
Your guide will take you into some of the back streets towards the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and then back through Chinatown Old City and the store.
