The Constitutional's storytellers, tour guides and historical character impersonators provide visitors with an authentic and engaging multimedia visitor experience. "GPS Gena" is the narrator who announces the sites and provides directions. Tour guides Eli and Emilie give a brief history of each site and "Philadelphia Frieda" interjects to provide some "Philadelphia Firsts." There are also some "special guests" who make appearances, such as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.
In addition to providing the quintessential Philadelphia tour experience that includes learning about Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, The Constitutional Walking Tour App also features present day information that transcends history along the route. Visitors will hear stories such as why Benjamin Franklin was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame.
With its patriotic music, captivating pictures, creative sound effects and entertaining storytellers, The Constitutional Walking Tour App is a multimedia experience. Using modern day technology, visitors can step back in time and walk in the Founding Fathers' footsteps. Whether it's the sound of a "pen" on parchment when John Hancock signs The Declaration of Independence or cannons discharging to announce America's first Fourth of July of celebration, the app immerses visitors in a virtual time machine by surrounding them with the sites, stories and sounds of Historic Philadelphia.
"With visitors practicing social distancing but still wanting to experience a tour of Historic Philadelphia, we are thrilled to launch The Constitutional Walking Tour App," stated Jon Bari, President of The Constitutional Walking Tour. "Philadelphia is best seen by foot, and as such, we are excited to debut this extension of our critically-acclaimed guided walking tours. The Constitutional Walking Tour App, which is great for all ages, provides visitors with the convenience to take the tour when they want, how they want, at their own pace."
"This is a great opportunity to learn, go on a fun adventure, and still be able to maintain safe distances during the pandemic.," stated Thomas Dunne, OnCell CEO and President. "We feel very fortunate to help share these amazing stories to keep people engaged and interacting during these unprecedented times."
