This was a great if short tour (about 30 minutes). Our park ranger was very knowledgeable and told the story of our history of the Constitution very well. It was especially exciting for us since we got to see where the American Constitution was signed...More

You can learn some historical information about Liberty Bell and some other facts, but there is not so much what to do. We spend there maybe 15 minutes.

To walk into the hall where both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed, takes your breath away. To be only a few short feet from Washington's famous "Sun Rising" chair can only remind you of who we are and what we are.

Tour was short but informative. Had such appreciation for our founding fathers and their willingness to fight for our democracy. Well worth the time to see this.

Its a long walk. Subway or Uber is a better option. Parking near the Terminal Market is tight. At Terminal Market try the Bassetts Ice Cream-oldest ice cream stand in America and its really good.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel. It's a great location and beautiful hotel. There are several great options though.
