What to Expect
Get into the festive spirit in this Christmas tour in Philadelphia that will have you Ho Ho Ho-ing all the way home! You'll be feeling festive in no time!

Note that this full itinerary reflects the 13:00 departure; the 17:00 tour visits all the same sites, but in a different order.
Begin your Philly tour at Philadelphia's City Hall, the cultural and geographic heart of Philadelphia's city center. After you've met your guide, get an introduction to Dilworth Park as you watch ice skaters with the iconic City Hall as the backdrop. Walk from there up to a historic railroad terminal and head downstairs to one of the country’s largest and most historic indoor markets (please note the market closes early on Sunday evenings; however, if you choose a Sunday 17:00 departure, this will be replaced by other exciting Philly sights). See a seriously impressive model train set displayed for the holidays, sure to take you right back to your childhood and fill you with that festive feeling of wonder.

Next, stop at a holiday light and sound show, which has delighted generations of Philadelphians during the holiday season and features the world's largest pipe organ.

From there, enter one of Philly's biggest shopping and restaurant districts. This neighborhood is always buzzing at this time of year, and as you stroll, catch some views of the fantastic holiday window displays. Continues toward Rittenhouse Square and see the beautiful Christmas tree and a view of the church where a favorite Christmas carols was written and first performed.

Continues to one of the newest attractions in Philly to be treated to a spectacular holiday show from one of the world’s largest LED TV screens inside one of Philly’s newest skyscrapers.

After the show, walk toward the Ben Franklin Parkway with views of Logan Square, Sister Cities Park and the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul, a Christmas destination for many Catholics in the Philadelphia area.

The tour concludes at an iconic public park for one of Philly's fastest growing traditions. Visit a traditional outdoor Christmas village and enjoy a chance to explore this winter wonderland (and be tempted by the many holiday food and drink choices!). Continue eating, shopping, and exploring, basking in the holiday spirit of Philadelphia.
