Trolley Tours

See the city’s rich culture and history come to life through the lens of the murals. From landmark murals in Center City to off-the-beaten-path streets in Philadelphia’s neighborhoods, the murals show the heart and soul of its residents.

Each tour is led by an experienced guide, who will tell the tales behind the art, including the people, places, and themes of each mural.  Along the way, learn about the mural making process, the culture of the neighborhoods, and how the murals compliment their environment.
