Did you know that visiting a college is termed “demonstrated interest” by schools and is one of the admissions criteria used to determine an applicant’s acceptance? In fact, “demonstrated interest” is one piece of the admissions puzzle that can give a student up to a 40% chance of being admitted over other applicants.


The college admissions process is a tricky one to navigate. Give yourself the best opportunity to succeed by joining us on this one-day trip to Pennsylvania for,  campus tours and some cool Philly attractions.


In addition to this incredible experience, A-1 Tours offers an EXCLUSIVE partnership with University Seekers. University Seekers is a college preparatory service led by a local college admissions expert. With their guidance, they market your personal profile to your dream schools. They stay in touch with the admissions departments to ensure your application is highlighted, giving you a leg up on the competition.


This day trip will give you the opportunity to visit TWO Pennsylvania Campuses. Villanova & Saint Joseph’s University - both great with great opportunities for a Catholic higher education. In one day, we will explore what these schools have to offer in the form of education and other things in the area of Greater Philadelphia. We will depart in the morning and start with Villanova University. As we arrive, we do the first campus tour & campus walk. From here we will head to Saint Joseph’s University. At both campuses, we’ll also visit the campus stores.


Afternoon in Philadelphia!


In between or after the two campus tours (pending time) we will enjoy lunch together to get energized for the afternoon. In the afternoon we are joined by a private Philadelphia tour guide who will give a brief overview of the city, tell you the ins and outs, and perhaps a secret or two about the city. We will also embark on a tour exploring some of Philly’s amazing streets at the Mural Mile as well as a visit to the new Museum of Illusion for some “eye-fooling-fun”. You will be amazed by as we explore the collections of one-of- a -kind illusions. Both the Mural Mile and the museum will give us some amazing picture opportunities to share with family and friends and on social media of course!  


After the museum, you will sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride back home!
