    Was so FUN! Mike was a great guide. I felt safe even in the Philly traffic because of Mike’s knowledge of the route and traffic system. My 18 ur son thought two hours was longer than he would have liked but I disagree. He wants to do the 1 hour Segway someday soon though.

    My 11-year-old son and I planned a Sunday 1-day trip to visit several locations starting at 10am - 5pm, and the Go Philadelphia All-Inclusive Pass was very convenient and no hassle. We parked where we were going to finish the day and walked to all locations, except an Uber from Mutter to American Revolution Museum: 1) Philadelphia Art Museum (10-11:30am) - excellent; could have spent 2-3 hours on the 3rd floor alone, but had to move on to get to other attractions; we are not huge fans of art, but the armor, paintings, sculptures, and woodwork kept our interest the entire time 2) East State Penitentiary (11:45-1:15pm) - great; very interesting and spent 1.5 hours there when we only planned for 45 minutes. 3) Mutter Museum (2-3pm) - great; many specimens and so much content considering the smaller size of the building 4) American Revolution Museum (3:15-5pm) - great; walk through history that led up to the Revolution, the different battles, and many details from that time period.

The Segway tour was fun! Our guide, Mike, gave us intruction about how to use a Segway and we all practiced before heading out. Mike was very attentive to making sure all of the participants stayed safe while having a fun ride! He narrated the tour expertly. We covered quite a bit of the city in an hour.

Was so FUN! Mike was a great guide. I felt safe even in the Philly traffic because of Mike’s knowledge of the route and traffic system. My 18 ur son thought two hours was longer than he would have liked but I disagree. He wants to do the 1 hour Segway someday soon though.
