School Group Tours


Take your students on a trip into history!


On a Free and Friendly walking tour, history is a fully immersive experience.  The city streets become the history books, and students can see the city around them as Ben Franklin or George Washington once did.

Free and Friendly Tours educates and entertains elementary, middle, high school and college groups on customized walking tours of Philadelphia. We also have experience leading groups of international students with limited English skills. We offer versions of our regularly-scheduled Colonial Cheesesteak and Billy-Penn tours customized to fit your curriculum and the interests of your students, whether you’re looking to introduce the story of the American Revolution for the first time, or to delve deeply into issues such as slavery, urbanization, or social class.


We understand that different groups have very different budgets, so please contact us to discuss the costs of the kind of tour to fit the needs and interests of your group.
