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

Really great way to see Philly . We booked a half day and saw so many things we normally wouldn't have experienced. Use these guys to show you the real Philly. you can do the highlights on your own, Liberty bell, independence hall etc. they have in depth knowledge and a real passion for histoy and the future. You won't... 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

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
