    Not worth it. You will not learn anything new and the guides were so bored.

    Pick up your free tix at the Visitors center first! All tours are timed. So get your tix and then head to the Liberty Bell after you've got them while you wait your turn. No tix needed for bell tour.

    Tour guides are enthusiastic and engaging! Make sure to get tickets at the visitor center before approaching the building. Daily parking rate underneath was about $20, less if you did hourly.

    So - if the visitor's center says it's sold out, go and stand in the line anyway. The Park Rangers let people in if there are open seats
