FREE TIME TIPS
EXPLORE MORE in Philadelphia with a visit to the legendary Liberty Bell, bearing timeless message: "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land unto all the Inhabitants Thereof" where it rang out from Independence Hall to summon lawmakers to work and the citizenry to gather for news.

" In addition to leading tours all over the United States and Canada, I enjoy my travels outside of North America, including Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Originally from Connecticut, my favorite season is autumn when the stunning fall foliage transforms the area into an even more beautiful landscape. I have a particular interest in U.S. history, and really enjoy connecting the places we visit on tour with stories from the past and contemporary issues of the present."

" As a Tour Director for more than two decades, I've always had a passion for travel. At 18, I traveled solo throughout Europe. A few years later, I was one of three youth ambassadors on a cultural exchange to Burkina Faso. As a Tour Director, I enjoy showing off America's Heartland. I encourage my guests to talk to the locals and try the regional foods. Guests often tell me that their fondest memories are of their time spent in small towns with "real Americans.""
