We were visiting Philadelphia for a short stay, so we wanted to see as much as possible in a timely manner. One of the guests in or party was a 90 year old woman who used a wheel chair. This private tour was perfect for us. We were able to direct the tour to meet our needs and interests. We... More

My husband and I booked two half day private driving tours for our trip to Philadelphia. We had two different tour guides, Trevor and Chris. Both of these guys did a great job showing us both the tourist spots and the local views of the city. They were knowledgeable, easy going, and fun to chat with. We would book this... More

This was our second tour with this company. The first tour to Amish country was Fabulous! So, when we came back to the Philly area for my daughter's graduation we thought we would take our family and friends on an historical pub crawl of Philadelphia. The craziness started when the driver didn't know where to pick up the tour guide... More

Booked a private tour and enjoyed every minute of it. Our guide, Trevor, was extremely informative, knew the coolest off the beaten path things to see and do and kept it interesting from beginning to end. Would recommend the company and suggest a private tour, as it is tailored to your specific desires.

The people at the office were very kind and let us leave our luggage there some hours before the tour. Note you need to keep a record of their phone number as the door was locked and we had to phone to get in. They have good facilities there and were happy for us to use it as a resting/dumping...

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that you didn't like the bar you visited. We like to go to local bars that aren't part of the tourist route, and people appreciate that there is refreshment at the end of the tour included in the price. The bar you refer to is a popular local watering hole, and... More

My 13 year-old son couldn't wait to see Philadelphia because he is a BIG Rocky fan. I had been to Philly many times for business but I didn't have a great idea about what to see and do there outside of Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Awfully Nice Tours to the rescue. After reading all of the great reviews... More

We have been in and out of Philly, being that we only live 90 minutes away but had never done the "touristy" tour. Following recommendations from Trip Advisor we chose to go with a private tour from Awfully Nice Tours. Jason arrived in his van promptly and asked us what we would like to see. He took us everywhere we... More

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
