Philadelphia Private Tours  and Philadelphia Small Group Tours

Philadelphia Tours and Experiences Hosted by Local Experts

With an array of scholars and experts working for Context in Philadelphia, our private and small group guided tours here cover a wide range of topics. One of our favorite eclectic tours is the "Hammer to the Head" History of Medicine Tour of Philadelphia. Did you know that medical history in the New World was made here? From the sordid details of early medical experiments, to advancements that saved lives worldwide, to a trip into the Mütter Museum, a former physician's college that now holds medical oddities, this private tour examines medical history with an intellectually curious bent. We also recommend nerding out on one of America's best art museums on our Philadelphia Museum of Art Tour. And when we're hungry? We head down to the Italian Market for our Philadelphia Food Tour, which looks not only at the legacy of Italian-Americans in the Italian Market, but newer culinary entrants like pho, tacos, and more.

Fantastic tour with John! We learned so much. Thank you.
I'll send an in-depth review of tour experience under separate cover. Indeed, it was so bad that such a letter is warranted.
John has a wonderful command of the history of Philadelphia and the Colonial Period. John adjusted the tour based on our interests and was a wealth of knowledge.
