My 11-year-old son and I planned a Sunday 1-day trip to visit several locations starting at 10am - 5pm, and the Go Philadelphia All-Inclusive Pass was very convenient and no hassle. We parked where we were going to finish the day and walked to all locations, except an Uber from Mutter to American Revolution Museum: 1) Philadelphia Art Museum (10-11:30am) - excellent; could have spent 2-3 hours on the 3rd floor alone, but had to move on to get to other attractions; we are not huge fans of art, but the armor, paintings, sculptures, and woodwork kept our interest the entire time 2) East State Penitentiary (11:45-1:15pm) - great; very interesting and spent 1.5 hours there when we only planned for 45 minutes. 3) Mutter Museum (2-3pm) - great; many specimens and so much content considering the smaller size of the building 4) American Revolution Museum (3:15-5pm) - great; walk through history that led up to the Revolution, the different battles, and many details from that time period.

Longwood Gardens was a wonderful experience. Picking up the ticket I got from you was a hassle to claim. Seems they had never heard of you and as I was trying to get my ticket I was beginning to think we weren't going to be able to claim it or.

My tour today with Mina/Mena was absolutely amazing and wonderful!! I wish I remembered to tip her or offer her some sort of gratuity because she absolutely deserves it. I was caught off guard bc my party wanted to leave the tour early bc of today’s AWFUL weather in Philly. I was drenched!! But Mina was so knowledgeable and experienced and taught us so much about our area in Philly and the History!! She was such a delight and a cool tour guide!! Thank you once again for your time and efforts, Mina !! I am again sorry I couldn’t thank you enough!!!
Joshua was cheerful and knowledgeable. He had lots of historical trivia which we all like. Obviously has been doing this for a while. Wish we had booked a longer tour now. We are a family of 5 with 3 teens who can sometimes be difficult to entertain. Dad is a history major/enthusiast.
Our tour guide Dick was really great. His tour was full of fascinating information and he had great answers and details for every question anyone asked him.
Our guide Katie was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed hearing all she had to say about the stops on the tour.
Ted is a great knowledgeable tour guide. Worth the money!
