This tour was a great way to see Philly. I liked how it was very customizable, so if you had specific interests, the tour was laid out to fit those interests. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, and the van was kept clean. Also, although this is not a kind of tour where you can get out and go... More

My party of four was in for a short 3 days that would be spent in meetings. Booking the tour was easy and our guide Trevor gave us a great tour, river to river. He was knowledgeable about the city; on time for pick up and very flexible as we went along. We got to see some very interesting things... More

We had a very diverse group of interests in our party, two young children, one young couple, and us middle aged parents. Jason did a masterful job keeping us all equally entertained and was ready for any wild card we threw at him including changes in what we wanted to see, needs to stop for medication, bathroom breaks out of...

I was in Philly alone for several days and wanted to find the land on which my ancestors may have lived that was off the beaten track. Set up a early evening tour so that I could spend the day in historical and genealogical libraries. Trevor was GREAT! Knows LOTS of History and shares what he knows! Picked me up... More

Our teenage son became a big Rocky movie fan over the last couple years. During a fall break, since he was in an AP History class, we decided to take to Philly for History, Food and Rocky. Of course being a teen, the history was at the bottom of the list. He loved the cheesesteak at Reading Terminal, but the... More

We had Jason as our tour guide for the Rocky Tour! This is well worth the money! Our tour guide was personable and highly knowledgeable about the filming locations - past & present. If you are a die hard Rocky fan, you can't miss this. Our tour guide has done his own research and matched up scenes from Rocky with... More

We did a half day private driving tour with Trevor and from the moment we were picked up until we were dropped off we had a ball! Trevor was extremely personable, knowledgeable and catered the tour to our interests as the afternoon progressed. We never felt rushed or bored and would love to spend more time with this company when... More

Highly recommended. We had a day layover in Philly in route to Europe. Trevor picked us up at our airport hotel in the morning, stowed our luggage in his van, showed us Philly and dropped us off at the airport in time for our evening flight back. Everything went smoothly with this booking that we made at the last minute.... More

Had a family group of 20, including 6 children under 6, and arranged a private bus tour of the historical parts of the city. Was on Black Friday so busy but Andy was a patient and great guide. Very knowledgeable and for some who have toured Philly several times we learned new things. Overall, a great day and even gave... More

We took a 1/2 day driving tour around Philly with Jason while visiting for an Eagles game. He asked what our interests were and what spots were on our wish list up front, then took us to a number of locations. We were able to get out of the car at many spots to see the city from an up... More
