With a wide range of tour options covering everything from Independence Hall and the Betsy Ross House to the National Constitution Center and the Barnes Collection Museum, visitors can see the best of historic Philadelphia with ease.
Discover the rich history of Philadelphia and get a little exercise with the Constitutional Walking Tour or sit back, relax and explore our nation’s beginnings with a ride on the Philadelphia Trolley Works or ’76 Carriage. Kids of all ages will go wild for the Ride the Ducks tour or a Patriot Harbor Lines cruise on the Schuylkill River. Get some culture on an architectural walking tour or let your imagination run wild with an evening ghost tour. Experience the tipsy side of Philly with a Tavern tour, get a taste of the city with a guided visit to the Italian Market or indulge your sweet tooth with a tempting chocolate tour. And you’ll definitely find romance in the City of Brotherly Love when you hop aboard a horse drawn carriage for a cozy ride through the City Center.
Whether you’re looking for a guided tour filled with great insider tips and history lessons or you’re interested in a self-guided tour of local museums and other hot spots, the best place to start is the Rittenhouse where our hotel concierge is happy to assist with tour and attraction information. And, after a day exploring the city, come back to our historic hotel and relax in luxurious guestrooms overlooking the heart of City Center.
