My husband and I just spent a wonderful afternoon touring Philly with Trevor of Awfully Nice Tours. He picked us up at our hotel on time in a clean, late model minivan. He was extremely warm and very interested in personalizing the tour to match our interests. In addition to covering all the historic landmarks, he really gave us a... More

I booked this trip for my other half who is the world's biggest Rocky fan through Awfully Nice Tours and the tour was brilliant. Our guide Trevor was very knowledgeable and we got to see not only all of the Rocky film locations but we learnt some of the history of Philadelphia too. I think leaving the City Hall steps... More

I threw an event for a VIP group in Philly while there for a conference. I contacted Awfully Nice Tours to plan a trolley ride through Philly complete with a cheese steak experience and a stop at a pub. They were very flexible and even helped me add another trolley just days before the event. The tour guides were informative... More

My wife and two boys ages 8 and 13 had a wonderful tour with our Tour guide Trevor. It was clear he had a passion for Philadelphia, and provided details as we walked the area for 3 hours that we never would have learned on our own. We saw Congress Hall, Carpenter’s Hall, the Franklin Print Shop and his house.... More

Our tour was on Sunday, June 29th, at the end of a busy week of activities all over PA. We only had 3 hours but our guide Chris managed to give us a great overview in that short window. We were a group of 5- ages from 11-71 and I wasn't sure that this would appeal to the entire group... More

We arranged a tour with Andy on our last day in Philadelphia. We were picked up at our hotel, and Andy spent the next 4+ hours driving us around and educating us on the rich history of this beautiful city. We made several stops to get out and walk, shop, take pictures, and grab a snack. We felt the price... More

I did the HD walking tour with Nina. It was excellent - Nina is Philly born and bred and has a lifetime of experience and knowledge to share. She also has a fantastic sense of humour and was good enough to give me a load of tips at the end of the tour for things to do on the rest... More

My son and I took my husband on the "river to river" Segway tour for Father's Day, and we had a great time. Our tour guide Mike, was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He showed us things in Philadelphia we had never seen and told us facts we didn't know, in a pleasant fun way. I grew up in south Jersey... More

Trevor was knowledgeable and friendly and walked at a nice, slow pace, which I appreciated with my achey knees...... For $25 each (reservations ahead of time), he took us on a 1.5 mile walk in 2 hours and showed us many historical highlights of Philadelphia. One of the things he pointed out, that we didn't know, was that originally Congress... More

Myself and two friends went on a Segway tour from Awfully Nice Tours on 2nd & Arch St with Owen as our guide. He showed us how to use the Segways, gave us helmets and a walkie talkie and did an excellent job explaining the history of our tour. I would recommend a Segway tour with Awfully Nice Tours on...
