What To Expect
Experience the mural art of Philadelphia as you roam around some of the most popular areas of the city while riding a fast and convenient segway electric vehicle. This tour will be initiated with meetups at the specified meeting point.
A 30-minute training course will be conducted before the tour starts to refresh you on the basics of maneuvering a segway vehicle. Your knowledgeable tour guide will then begin the tour by leading you to the first destination and sharing facts about some places in the area as well.
First on the itinerary of this tour is a visit to the Old City. You will then take a north route from there to explore the colorful neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Get to know the Mural Arts Organization, an anti-graffiti organization founded for the purposes of combating the graffiti crisis by creating massive, colorful artworks in selected areas of the city.
Marvel at the sight of the highly creative murals located at side streets, buildings, and random walls. Feast your eyes on greatly imaginative artworks mixed with various colors, shapes, and themes. Capture the strong messages as portrayed by the murals as you get the chance to step off the segway and take a closer look. Your tour guide will provide the camera for photo opportunities which he/she will then upload within the day of your tour. Among the messages that the murals of the city portrays are peace, love, equality, the importance of education, and the attainment of dreams.
After the first half of the tour, enjoy a quick break at a local coffee shop, sandwich shop, or café. Go sightseeing as you pass through the Northern Liberties (a neighborhood in Philadelphia) and into the Spring Garden (a combination of cultural attractions and residential neighborhoods) where you will set sights on some of the most popular restaurants, pubs, and music venues in Philadelphia. You will find how elaborate the locations of the murals are as your tour guide points each one that you will pass by along the way.
Venture into Chinatown to discover some of the iconic murals that depict its history in the city. Observe and decode the messages that lie within the murals of Chinatown and get to know the struggles that the Chinese community had encountered for their community to survive in the area.
