The Great Philly What?

Are you looking for new, unique "Things to do in Philly"?  Look no further.  Try one of  Philly's most unique attractions, a walking tour through Old City Philadelphia for comedy, magic, and mystery, inspired by history! 


Award winning magician,  Robert Malissa, leads you on a walking tour to historic and offbeat locations, each of which is the basis for a comedic and mind-bending magical performance.  In the program are:

The True Story of the Flag, sung outside the Betsy Ross House

A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned, performed outside Benjamin Franklin's House

A Cure for the National Debt, outside the 1st Bank of the U.S.

A Quick History of the U.S. Dollar, outside the 2nd Bank of the U.S.

.... and much, much more! 

(We don't stop at the Liberty Bell, it doesn't ring.)


You will never see Philadelphia the same way again! 

(Appropriate for ages 13 and up)

1 Hour 15 Minutes

Audience Instructions

The walking tour is outdoors and weather dependent.  If the weather looks sketchy, please call 267-566-8897 to determine if the walking tour will be performed.  All decisions will be made at least 1 hour before showtime. (Tickets are fully refundable if canceled due to weather).

We meet behind the Bourse (near 4th and Ranstead Streets).  Please come 15 minutes early to check-in, and use the bathrooms at the Bourse if needed. The walking tour starts promptly and there are no bathroom breaks which means you'd have to split off and find your way back to the group.
