Valley Forge 4 hours Tour
Quoc_T, Oct 2023
Four hours plus tour, Adam, our tour guide was very professional, friendly, and informative. We enjoyed the comfortable pace, not rushed. He answered all questions and has a good sense of humor. Highly recommended!
Dale was a fantastic tour guide!
carolboyer, Sept 2023
Our tour guide was Dale — and he was great. His extensive knowledge about history and Philadelphia made our trip perfect. We were in a van with just one other couple, so it was basically a private tour. Thanks so much Dale!
Well worth the time and money!
Kathryn_C, Sept 2023
Our guide Dale was so knowledgeable about history and presented well. His tour of Philadelphia was also a plus and he was able to answer numerous questions.
On the Road to Valley Forge
JenniferW, Sept 2023
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She shared much information about the history of the American Revolution and how Valley Forge evolved into a huge winter camp for the colonial volunteers to train to become soldiers. Seeing the house where General Washington planned and communicated with officers was excellent and the memorial church built in remembrance of Washington was a gem. It was a great day.

Samuel_H, Sept 2023
Our tour guide James was a PHD in history which surprised me, but it was great because he had a wealth of knowledge. He did a great job and would highly recommend his tour!
This was a small group tour with an excellent guide. You visit the various sites in a small SUV van.

Informational visit to Valley Forge
Leon_B, Sept 2023
We really enjoyed our tour of Valley Forge. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and we learned a lot of new information. We would definitely recommend this tour.
All good things to say.
Michael_C, Sept 2023
I went to Valley Forge with RIck from WeVenture through viator. I was the only person to sign up that day, and he still took me and gave me a personalized tour. There is no other way to get there outside of a tour unless you drive and even if you do, Valley Forge is so vast, you have to know where you are going. Rick had encyclopedic knowledge of Revolutionary history and was able to contextualize the past and present in a way that brought the material to life. Besides being a great history tour , the land itself is a beautiful, maybe unrated, national park. This is a highly recommended tour.
Walking through history
Leanne_M, Aug 2023
If you want to learn more about the Revolutionary War, this tour puts you right where George Washington marched his continental soldiers to in the winter of 1777 to fend off the British. Photos show the crude huts built to keep out the elements for the troops. The brick house was rented for George & Martha Washington, along with some of his staff. You get to go into both! Our tour guide, Rick, has a real passion for US history and gave us a great commentary throughout. He was very personable with our small group. We throughly enjoyed our day.
Great Memories
Marcia_S, Aug 2023
Learning so many details about the American Revolution and life at Valley Forge has created a memory we won't forget. Our guide Marty was so knowledgeable, able to answer all of our questions.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
It is always amazing to hear our guests say how memorable and impactful our tours are. This is why we do what we do. Thank you so much for choosing WeVenture and for leaving this review!
Valley Forge worth the visit
Valerie_B, Aug 2023
Great guide! Laura was outstanding. The tour picked up in the city. Pretty drive out to Valley Forge. We stopped at the Visitor’s Center first and then toured the park. The park is large and a combination recreational area and historical site. The highlight was Washington’s house on the grounds. Overall, well worth the visit.
Fun tour

Great guide for a great trip
Lisa_P, July 2023
James Robinson was an outstanding guide. We really enjoyed the day and thought we finally understood the importance of Valley Forge.
Great tour and great tour guide!
Wayne_L, July 2023
Our guide, Tom, was excellent. My husband and I had only a short amount of time to be in Philadelphia and we wanted to make the most of it. We decided on the Valley Forge tour and we were not disappointed at all. It has been many years since we were in high school and had forgotten much of our American History. It was great to have it refreshed. Tom was very knowledgeable about the subject and eager to share stories and experiences he had researched. I cannot say enough good about how he handled the tour and he made it fun as well.
Alice_L, July 2023
I would have liked going on the park tour which seemed more information dense than our tour guide only.
Historic Valley Forge
Luzviminda_S, July 2023
It was great being in a very historic place where the continental army was forged! Our guide Jim went above and beyond his duties showing us around.
Must do
Patrina_B, July 2023
Everything was great. Jim was very gracious and accommodating. He was very well informed on the history and culture of the area. We're able to see and do so much more when on a professional tour than we could ever do trying to drive around and sight-see without a tour guide!
Great history lesson from James
Maria_L, July 2023
The guide was very knowledgeable and explained the history making this trip very interesting. James explained how the terrain was at the time of the war giving us a visual of how things were during the war. We loved how knowledgeable James was. Would go on this tour again.
The cabins the troops...

The cabins the troops built and lived in and George Washington's accommodations. Our tour guides knowledge of the battle.
