The Best Philadelphia Tours

Philadelphia's "Rocky" statue in the daytime

The "Rocky" statue is one of the sights you'll see along the Yo, Philly! Rocky Film Tour.

There are so many things to do in Philadelphia that the historic landmarks alone – Independence Hall , the Liberty Bell , the National Constitution Center , the Betsy Ross House – could fill an entire trip. To make the most of your time, consider a guided Philadelphia tour that covers a variety of attractions and experiences, from visiting lesser-known "Rocky" filming locations with a Sylvester Stallone look-alike to tasting your way through the city's best food markets with an expert.

Based on travel expert opinions and recent views from sites like Tripadvisor and Google, these are the best tours in Philadelphia.

The Yo, Philly! Rocky Film Tour

Kunda will share stories told to him by actor Sylvester Stallone from his time on set during the filming of "Rocky Balboa," "Creed" and "Creed II," and there will be plenty of "Rocky" trivia along the way. Participants praise Kunda's depth and breadth of knowledge and love his enthusiasm.

The tour is limited to private groups of up to seven people for a flat rate of $350. Tours must be booked in advance on the official website.

Big Bus Philadelphia – 1-Day Tour

Price: Adults from $36; kids from $17 Duration: 90 minutes or more

If you're looking for a traditional hop-on, hop-off bus tour in Philly, climb aboard the Big Bus Philadelphia for an overview of the city.

Experienced English-speaking guides offer a comprehensive commentary along the route. While this is the highest-rated Philadelphia bus tour, reviews are mixed.

I had a fantastic tour with Toni! She was enthusiastic and insightful and went out of her way to make it a personal experience for our group. She even gave everyone their own postcard so we could send mail from the first post office! I learned a lot about the creation of America.

Was running late as our train into Philly was delayed about 10 minutes. We met Glenn and were lucky enough to have a private tour as nobody else showed up. We started at the Betsy Ross house where we stayed outside for about 15 minutes. We went to elfreth's alley where we spent close to 30 minutes learning about the Trinity style architecture and lots more. We walked to the courtyard of the Ben Franklin museum. He also gave us the lowdown on where to go for the best cheesesteaks. It's pay what you wish and overall gives a great introduction to the city.

philadelphia tours by foot

I did the 10:30 AM Independence Mall Tour Philly Tour with them on a Monday in late June 2022. I walked to the Betsy Ross House, the meeting place, from the place I was staying. If you need to use the restroom before the Tour, use the one in the Betsy Ross House because the one in the Starbucks across the street didn't have any toilet paper. We had a very big group but Toni kept us all together. She is such a gem - a much better storyteller than the Tour guide from the Independence Hall. This tour with Toni made up for the anticlimactic one from the Independence Hall. She was very thoughtful and made sure we always stopped in the shade since it was a very hot day. Her stories were entertaining and engaging. I loved all the historical snippets she'd give us about the timeperiod of the founding fathers. We got so lucky because Benjamin Franklin's printing press was finally opened after a 10-year closure. Such a great addition to The Tour. You donate whatever you want at the end and I would highly recommend it if you're in Philly.

After a red eye flight from SoCal we dropped off our luggage and grabbed some La Colombe before heading to our Independence Mall tour! Richard was a great guide- it was clear he is passionate about the history of his city and loves sharing about it with others. He knows his stuff and really made the history come alive. This is exactly why I like walking tours- when done right (as this was!) it's so much more engaging than doing a self-guided tour reading facts off your phone and trying to get yourself from a to b. He welcomed any and all questions and was just a delight! We really loved the tour and I'd highly recommend to anyone visiting Philly- especially to get yourself better acquainted with the city and its history before you continue exploring!

Photo of D H.

Fantastic tour with Toni. She is a wealth of information and made the tour fun. Also had great recommendations for things to see and do in Philly. Thank you Toni!

philadelphia tours by foot

Toni's tour was a terrific overview of notable Philadelphia sites in the area. It was also chock full of interesting tidbits of information and helpful tips on other sights to see. She even cleverly engaged a resident expert at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul to share his special knowledge of that truly spectacular space).

Photo of Gregory R.

We are big fans of Free Tours by Foot, having done them in New York and Boston, as well as our recent tour in Philadelphia. The tours are always led by interesting, knowledgeable people who are passionate about their city. It is a great activity for tourists (we live in Philly, so this was a way to get to know our new city). I highly recommend!

Photo of Dylan M.

We did a tour in Philadelphia and our tour guide, Toni, was fantastic. Knowledgeable, indefatigable and, above all else, very funny.

Photo of Laura T.

Free Tours By Foot has done it again! I've been on several tours across North America and am always impressed by the level of detail that the storytelling of the guides provide. This time around, Joseph was personable, and great at answering the questions that we had of him. I'm from the Boston area, so he was able to speak to what was happening where I'm from at the same time as what was going on in Philly. The tour was the Independence Mall Tour, based on a recommendation from a friend. It covers all the must-sees from early Philadelphia history.

Photo of Michael P.

The Independence Mall Tour in Philadelphia with Richard was awesome! I will totally recommend for anyone visiting the city. Thank you!

Philly on Foot

Year after year, Philadelphia is rated as one of the best walking cities in the country. And it’s no wonder why – the city layout is simple to master and our neighborhood streets are filled with fun and diverse shops, restaurants, museums, parks and people.

The compact Center City boasts founder William Penn’s easy-to-follow grid street design. It spans just 25 blocks between two rivers: the Schuylkill and the Delaware. In between, the north/south streets are numbered and the east/west streets have tree names (e.g., Walnut, Spruce, Pine).

Walk from City Hall to the Liberty Bell in just 15 minutes

In addition, Philadelphia’s five original public squares — Franklin, Washington, Rittenhouse, Logan and Centre (now City Hall) — are conveniently spread out, serving as perfect rest stops during a long day out. Curb cut-outs make the city stroller and wheelchair accessible.

Colorful “Walk! Philadelphia” directional signs can be found throughout the downtown area to help visitors navigate even more easily. Center City District, the organization responsible for the award-winning signage, also populates the streets with uniformed community service representatives (CSRs) who act as strolling concierges and goodwill ambassadors. CSRs answer questions, give directions, administer first aid and stay in radio contact with Philadelphia police to promote public safety.

And when the feet get tired, there are plenty of options for getting around town — some practical, some just plain fun.

Philly is more bike-friendly than ever with Indego, a city-wide bike sharing service that offers rentals starting at just $4 per ride.

Launched in 2015 with 1,000 bikes and 100 stations, Indego continues to expand its program, adding more than 40 new stations and 300 additional bikes over the last two years. Stations are located throughout the city, from the Delaware River across the Schuylkill River into West Philadelphia and University City, and from South Philadelphia to North Philadelphia, including on Temple University’s main campus.

Cyclists can walk up to any Indego station and check out bikes for trips around the city 24 hours a day, seven days a week (riders are encouraged to follow the rules of the road and to always wear a helmet). Using a touchscreen kiosk, bikes are released from their docks when payment is made with a credit card or a pre-paid Indego Key. This quick and convenient system also allows bikers to return rentals to the nearest station after their ride is complete.

Indego is an initiative of the City of Philadelphia and is sponsored by Independence Blue Cross.

Inside Scottie Scheffler’s unique footwork as he seeks another Masters

Follow live coverage today of the opening round of the 2024 Masters at Augusta National

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The No. 1 player in the world looks like he has rollerblades strapped to his golf shoes.

As Scottie Scheffler delivers his club down the slot and strikes the ball, his right foot lifts off the ground and slides toward the target. Scheffler swings with so much power that sometimes, his left foot also leaves the earth, shifting backward while his big toe simultaneously rotates counterclockwise.

We asked ChatGPT who had the perfect golf swing. While refusing to name just one, it referenced Ben Hogan’s precision and Tiger Woods’ fundamentals and Adam Scott’s graceful swing. Scheffler did not come up.

“It might not look the most beautiful, but he does everything so well to hit the ball in the middle of the club face,” says Tom Kim, Scheffler’s peer on the PGA Tour and fellow Dallas resident. “No further questions needed.”

Scheffler’s quirky footwork has been the source of constant wonder and analysis on PGA Tour broadcasts. That won’t stop at this week’s Masters , where the 2022 champion will look to capture his second career major and third victory already this year. The “Scottie shuffle” will be on full display at Augusta National .

How does the best ball striker in the world have such a peculiar swing?

Scheffler got lucky. When he was six years old, Scheffler’s parents, Diane and Scott, picked up their bags, left New Jersey and moved to Dallas for Diane’s career. Shortly thereafter, they joined Royal Oaks Country Club. That’s where Scheffler started taking lessons from head professional Randy Smith, the coach of Justin Leonard, Colt Knost, Ryan Palmer and a handful of other highly successful tour pros.

Smith’s philosophy is simple and might have been the catalyst for Scheffler’s meteoric rise in the professional ranks.

“I teach based on what the person can do, not what I think it should look like,” Smith says.

Tired: Cupid Shuffle. Wired: Scottie Shuffle. 💘 #Qi10Driver #TeamTaylorMade pic.twitter.com/THXqrefR6m — TaylorMade Golf (@TaylorMadeGolf) February 14, 2024

Scheffler’s footwork isn’t a new element in his swing. He’s been moving his feet like that since he was a teenager. When Scheffler was in high school, his right foot started its signature slide in his downswing — before even striking the ball.

“Scottie’s foot used to release a lot earlier,” says Troy Van Biezen, Scheffler’s performance coach. “Now, when he’s playing well, his foot slides after the ball is struck, post-impact.”

Scheffler’s move morphed over the years. A rapid growth spurt, one that brought him from 5-foot-6 to 6-3, forced him to re-acclimate to a taller, lankier body and naturally, his swing evolved with it. It took several years for Scheffler to iron out the kinks and pains that came with puberty. He battled back issues and his scores ballooned. But his team encouraged him to be patient. Scheffler might have been momentarily tempted, but Smith never allowed him to remove those unique fundamentals in his golf swing to fit an aesthetic mold.

“I wholeheartedly believe that if any other golf coach got a hold of Scottie, they would have tried to change his swing and probably would have ruined him,” says Van Biezen. “A lot of golf coaches out there want to put their trademark on a golf swing. Randy has never been that way.”

Scheffler’s feet never got planted, and his game took off.

“I think a lot of people said that (my footwork) would make it hard for me to be consistent, hard for me to play under pressure with that much going on in my swing,” Scheffler said Tuesday at Augusta National. “I’ve had the same coach since I was seven years old, and he’s taught me for 20 years now how to swing a golf club.

“He hasn’t wanted to change it yet, so I don’t think we’re going to change it anytime soon.”

Masters 2024 Big Board: How Tiger Woods, Scottie Scheffler and everyone else stack up

Scheffler’s intrinsic footwork is representative of a trendy skill in golf instruction, one that many elite players work tirelessly to manufacture into their own swings.

He uses ground reactive forces to generate speed. The term might sound fancy, but it’s basic physics. Scheffler’s feet push so hard into the ground that an equal and opposite reaction sends the force up through his lower body, allowing for maximum power at impact and more distance. Those forces also explain why Scheffler’s feet fly off the turf.

The trait isn’t unique to Scheffler. Several players throughout the game’s history have succeeded on tour with swings founded on seemingly unconventional foot movement. Greg Norman is perhaps the most obvious example. In his prime, the two-time major champion would lash at the ball, causing his legs to shift after impact just like Scheffler’s.

“Greg Norman, Johnny Miller, Walter Hagen — even Bobby Jones would hit shots and he’d be on his tippy toes,” says Golf Channel analyst and former PGA Tour player Brandel Chamblee. “There are loads of players who’ve had footwork (like Scheffler), and it’s even more prevalent now.”

Regardless of who Scheffler evoked on the golf course, Smith worked with what was in front of him on the driving range at Royal Oaks. The free-flowing nature of Scheffler’s game that was supported by Smith’s methodology allowed him to mature into the world-dominant player he is today.

On the PGA Tour, Scheffler is currently ranked No. 1 in strokes gained tee to green by almost an entire shot. The gap between Scheffler and the No. 2 player on that list (Xander Schauffele) is larger than the gap between No. 20 and No. 109, according to The Athletic contributor Justin Ray.

Scheffler’s on-and-off putting woes have been a subject of concern, but since Scheffler is far and away the best ball striker on the tour, it almost doesn’t matter what he does on the greens. If the Texan even has a decent day with his putter but hits the ball like he usually does, he’ll blow away the rest of the field.

But like all athletes, a move that produces such astounding numbers requires upkeep.

Van Biezen has known Scheffler since he was 14 years old. Like Smith, Van Biezen always appreciated Scheffler’s intrinsic footwork but he also recognized that it necessitated a special level of care off the golf course.

Van Biezen, who now works full-time with the NHL ’s Dallas Stars but assigns daily workouts to Scheffler to complete with his traveling physiotherapist, says that he “reverse engineers” his players’ golf swings. For Scheffler, that means observing his singular moves and building routines that support those specific muscle patterns in a controlled environment: the gym.

Most professional golfers place a premium on balance-related movements in the training room, but Scheffler’s dramatic footwork requires a particular focus on single-leg work. If Van Biezen notices that one side of Scheffler’s body isn’t in line with the other, he’ll adjust his daily exercises accordingly, even down to the number of sets Scheffler does on his right and left sides.

“If I see he’s not loading his right hip as well, I might do three sets on the right and only one on the left,” Van Biezan says.

A Masters winner’s new purpose? Bringing ‘humanity’ to its broadcast

It might not look like it when Scheffler is slipping and sliding on tee boxes, but his swing indicates a highly impressive sense of bodily awareness, one that is innate to his game but also has to be supported in the gym.

The way Scheffler works his limbs when he’s launching a 3-wood around the bend of a fairway or floating a delicate 75-yard wedge onto an elevated green is only possible because of his athleticism.

Scheffler doesn’t care what he looks like — if the ball is going where he wants it to go, that’s all that matters. He swings to score, not to look good.

“He’s got the best pair of hands I’ve ever seen in my life, for a golfer,” Smith says. “He has a feel for what he wants the golf ball to do. He isn’t a robot. He’s an athlete.”

To Smith, that’s what it all comes down to: Scheffler is a freak athlete who happens to love golf. How else do you expect him to swing?

Outside of his PGA Tour duties, Scheffler is an avid pickleball player. A video circulated of the Texan beating the No. 1 pickleballer in the world, Ben Johns, in a rally during a celebrity tournament in November. Scheffler also played on the Highland Park Varsity basketball team in high school and is known to shoot a few hoops at home in between tour stops. In describing Scheffler’s swing one last time before hanging up the phone, Smith casually mentions that the No. 1 golfer in the world can still dunk a basketball.

“You go and get me another 6-3 guy who can slam dunk a basketball, somebody who can throw a baseball as fast as you can throw it, somebody that can throw a football farther than you think, and let’s see how they swing a golf club,” Smith says.

Scheffler might not look the part, but he’s the poster child for the undying “golfers are athletes” campaign.

His unpredictable and jarring move is rooted in feel. The flow and freedom in Scheffler’s swing — bolstered by rock-solid fundamentals — allows him to deliver the golf club into the golf ball exactly how he wants to. Scheffler didn’t become an elite ball striker by chasing aesthetics and planting his unruly feet to the ground.

He did it by understanding he could climb the ladder with rollerblades on.
