As other reviewers have noted, a fantastic personalised tour visiting parts of the city we would never have gone to. Jason gavce us so much information, not just on the minutae of where the Rocky fils were shot (supplemented with movie clips to compare and contrast) but also on the social background to Philadelphia. Couldn't recommend him and the company... More

This was so much more than a tour of the Rocky film sights in Philadelphia. Our tour guide, Jason was brilliant, he was very knowledgeable and we saw the city from one side to the other. We visited neighbourhoods that we would never have visited on our own and the whole tour was carried out at a pace to suit... More

My cousins were visiting from Edinburgh, Scotland, and I wanted to have a private tour for the one day they were spending in Philadelphia. The reviews on Trip Advisor did not let me down. I stopped into their place of business in Olde City, and they immediately accommodated us on a private walking tour of the historic area. Jason was... More

Had a great experience using the services of Awfully Nice Tours on two private tours. The tour guide was extremely knowledge about the historical significance of the local areas on both tours and very knowledgeable about the local sites in Philadelphia as well. One tour was half-a-day. The other tour was for a full day. The service was friendly and... More

Trevor was our guide who took us to Lancaster. But on the way he spoke about general Philadelphia history and encouraged us to ask questions. He gave us options about where to stop for lunch and when to stop to take pictures. He was very accommodating. The countryside was of course beautiful.

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
