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

Our tour was booked as a driving tour around the city. We had never been before so thought it would be good to get a guide to show us around the main attractions. When we arrived, our guide Jason suggested walking. It was a great decision as we got to see a lot more and ask more questions. Jason had... More

Like most of the reviews Awfully Nice Tours does it right. My wife and I took both the Italian Market Tour and the Historical District tour. Lots of local insights from locals and the behind the scene tidbits that you wouldn't get when you you do your own thing.

We booked a 4-hour tour for ourselves and our two younger sons (7 and 11). Jason was our guide, initially on foot and then in a mini-van. He was really engaging - knowledgable, understanding of what would interest younger children, but not patronizing to them. The four hours went past very fast (even with the cold wind). We got a...

For my bachelorette party I arranged for the group to participate in a Bridal Cashunt through Awfully Nice Tours. The cashunt is similar to a scavenger hunt in that groups must find items throughout the city and take pictures or videos of said items. Each item has a designated a cash value. Each team has two hours to complete the... More

What a fantastic day we had with Jason, our tour guide today. We were met on time at 30th st coming in from NYC by Amtrak. We visited all the iconic spots the movies were shot in & given VIP service. Highly recommended to anyone considering doing this.
