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, 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.

You'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.

On the next part of your Total Philly journey, you’ll visit those unmissable Philly sights. You’ll gather at the Philly Tour Hub, and from there, 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. You’ll also pass the Liberty Bell, where you might get a chance to go inside for pictures. Then off to Washington Square for stories of William Penn. Continue through Independence National Park and the must-see front yard of Independence Hall, the sight of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.

There are few better ways to get to know a city than over a beer with a local. So, enter your local beer expert to cap off your tour! You'll meet your beer guide at City Hall just as locals are finishing up their workday.

You’ll get a glimpse at some of the most popular drinking establishments in the city. You’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 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.
