Philadelphia Private and Small Group Guided Tours

( 112 )
Colonial history meets an authentic urban vibe in Philadelphia, a former Quaker enclave that grew into the most important city in Colonial America.
While Philadelphia may be best known for Ben Franklin and cheesesteaks, there's a host of other history to unearth here—immigrant cuisine, Gilded Age architecture, America's first medical school, and the acclaimed impressionist and post-impressionist artworks of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Explore the wonders of Philadelphia with Context's private and small group guided tours.

Philadelphia Private Tours and Philadelphia Small Group Tours

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.

John was an amazing guide. He adapted to anything we wanted or asked. John gave texture and anecdotal stories to a fascinating time in our history.
Joelle was wonderful. Tailored the walk / talk to our interests, highly informed on many topics with great back story on things, seems to very much enjoy her work. Her prior experience as docent at other Philadelphia sites also meant so had much relevant information to share. Very engaging, and thoughtful…it was a very hot sunny days so she geared toward shade and places where we could step in for a quick cool down. Would highly recommend her as a guide.
Joella is amazing!!!! She did an outstanding job in sharing her wealth of knowledge and passion for the history of Philadelphia. It was a fabulous tour and incredibly interesting! Loved every minute!
