Philadelphia Holiday Tour

Join us for a festive frolic as we showcase Philadelphia’s Holiday Spirit. We will guide you through nostalgic and new traditions of the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection. 

From the sounds and smells of the Reading Terminal to the Holiday Light Show in Macy’s narrated by Julie Andrews and the laughter of the children as they glide by on the Dilworth Park skating rink, merriment abounds! Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas or just want to enjoy the bright lights in the cold of Winter, there is something for every guest. 

Things To Note:

  • Be sure to bundle up! The joy of the Season can warm the soul, but to prevent catching a chill be sure to dress warmly, more then half of the tour is outside. 
  • Please show up early for this tour since timing is key so you do not miss any of the light shows and music.
