APT is not a tour company, but an association of independent tour guides and tour companies. Many of our individual members work for one or more tour companies or operators in Philadelphia, and some run their own companies. Tour operators, schools, individuals etc. are encouraged to use this APT directory as a resource when seeking qualified guides.
