Philly By Day
How many horse and carriage rides can one take? It's time to explore Philly from a modern perspective – the pedicycle! If you are visiting Philadelphia for a family trip, school experience, historic experience, corporate team building exercise, birthday celebration or any other reason, seeing the rich Philadelphia history via a Big Red pedicycle is an experience to remember. Starting from Independence Mall, your driver/guide will take you to more than ten historic sites in two hours, allowing you jump off and explore several of those sites up close and personal. Walk the oldest continuously lived on street in America, Elfreth's Alley, and experience Ben Franklin's house and don't miss a photo opportunity with the Liberty Bell. You pedal, the driver/guide enlightens and the whole group has fun! Book now!
