What To Expect
Venture into Philadelphia while riding a segway vehicle as you stroll from one area of the city to another. This tour will take you to the southern neighborhoods of South Philadelphia, Historic District, Society Hill, and the famous Italian Market.
To ensure the safety of the participants, a 30-minute training session for riding the segway vehicle will be initiated by the tour guide.
This tour will start by passing through the Historic District to Penns Landing (a waterfront area) and the Delaware River from Welcome Park (a park dedicated to the life of William Penn). Your tour guide will tell you stories about William Penn, a real estate entrepreneur and founder of the province of Pennsylvania who fought against religious oppression. Discover the grid-like streets of Philadelphia which go back to the time of William Penn.
On land, enjoy travelling across the river and head back to Head House Square afterwards. Head House Square is one of the many historic districts in the city. During your tour of this district, you will be able to admire some of the historic homes surrounding the area. Your tour guide will share information on the tree-lined residential neighborhood which was then a venue for the riots in the 1800s. Photo opportunity will be enjoyed with the tour guide as your photographer.
Another great visit during this tour is to the Italian Market. Considered as the residence of many Italian generations, the Italian Market is among the oldest and largest markets in America. This particular market offers its visitors authentic Italian grocery shops, cheeses, spices, vegetables, baked goods, coffee, and meat.
Last on the itinerary of this tour is a ride back to Society Hill where you can see the Magic Gardens which is famous for its artsy mosaics. Pass through the Historic District and get a chance to see the First Bank of the United States as well as the old churches around the area up close and personal.
