For the past year, people all around the world have learned to social distance, quarantine and adjust to life during the pandemic. In an instant, the pace of everyday life has shifted online from how people go to work to how students attend school.
Technology became more imminent than ever before during these unprecedented times. Zoom calls have become the new norm allowing us to connect with a loved one, connect for a professional meeting anywhere in the world.
It is no surprise that many recreational activities have also pivoted to an online presence to provide individuals a convenient and safe way to socialize during this coronavirus pandemic.
Allen Batista Travel, Inc. offers virtual walking tours available for people anywhere in the world to experience travel from a whole new perspective.
Philly Ghost Tour
Philadelphia is the setting for the Philadelphia Ghost Tour. A lesser known gem of Philadelphia is that it has a spooky side which inspired several world-renowned artists of gothic literature and films. Some of those authors include Edgar Allan Poe and his works, “The Murders of Rue Morgue” and “The Raven”, Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, and David Lynch’s “Eraserhead”.
The ghost tour consists of famous attractions like the Bishop White’s House, Pennsylvania Hospital, City Hall, Independence Hall and Walnut Street Theater and so much more. It also explores the supernatural sightings of German soldiers and ultimately provides an invigorating experience that will leave you wanting more.
Philadelphia Independence Mall Tour
Another fascinating virtual walking tour that is offered is the Philadelphia Independence Mall Walking Tour. Philadelphia is filled with a rich history and is actually the birthplace of our country as it is where our Founding Fathers met, discussed, debated, and ultimately formed the United States of America.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Christ Church, Betsy Ross House, Ben Franklin, the first and second banks in the United States, Congress Hall, and many more.
