Our tour guide was hilarious and very knowledgeable about the city. I thought my kids (5 and 7 yr old) would be bored learning about the city but they were entertained the whole time! Overall great experience and would recommend to anyone (even without kids).

A great way too see the main attractions of Philadelphia and decide what you want to revisit, a wonderful fun ride and kids especially... More
