Fairmount Water Works is a National Historic Landmark and one of Philadelphia's first tourist attractions.

The tour will explore the Palladian-style buildings and the South Garden at the Water Works, along with the scenic Schuylkill River Trail on the way to the Walnut Street Dock

On the water, the boat will sail past the historic Woodlands Cemetery and through Gray's Ferry Crescent.

Upcoming tour dates include:
