Nothing excites students and gives them a better understanding of America than following the Founders’ footsteps and experiencing the places where they made history. At Bow Tie Tours, we pride ourselves on providing those “goose bump moments” that allow students and adults to come face to face with the founding of the country. With our total package, we offer the best historical field-trip experience in Philadelphia.

Our field trip is far more than just a walking tour. We visit your school prior to the tour in the guise of Philadelphia doctor (and Signer of the Declaration of Independence) Benjamin Rush. Dr. Rush will talk about how he and his friends (which include Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, George Washington and Thomas Paine) secured independence and a new country. Dr. Rush will also divide your classroom in such a way that each student will focus
on a particular founder. Have you ever gone on a school field trip and discovered that the kids were too excited just by being out of the classroom to even listen to anything anybody had to say? We have found a way to actually involve the students in the telling of the story, with the help of our FREE Student Resource Guide.

Once you book a tour with us, we can help you to make the most of your visit to Philadelphia with Bow Tie Tour’s FREE Teacher Resource Guide, which provides useful information, including pre-trip and post-trip exercises. We understand how stressful it can be to plan a field trip so we have created several resources to assist you including itineraries, directions, lunch recommendations and bus parking options.

Cost: $15.00 per ticket (must be over 30 tickets), includes the Dr. Rush visit.
