Four of us took the all-day tour. Our guide, Trevor, was so knowledgeable and accommodating. He took us to each of the places on our list and more. He was able to answer all of our questions and made excellent recommendations for food, which we followed and enjoyed! He offered information about the city, the country and the people who... More

I was recently in Philly with my boyfriend. We attended the "Philly on Tap" Tour and had a blast. We love walking tours, history and beer so it fit well. We learned a lot about the city and were able to drink good beer. Our tour guide, Chuck, was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend that tour and any others... More

Delightful tour of the historic district with Josh. Surprised that the tour wasn't cancelled as it was just my daughter and I in the " group." Great overview that helped us decide what we wanted to explore more thoroughly. Josh, the park rangers and Christ church guide really gave excellent insights into historical events.

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.
