“Jason made all of my boyfriends Rocky dreams come true!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

This tour was AMAZING. I booked the tour for my Rocky obsessed boyfriend, who's been talking all of the 3 years i've known him about wanting to go to Philly and see all these sights. I was so nervous about how it would go...Jason went above and beyond. We saw everything we wanted, and even got a few amazing surprises :) We also learned a lot about the history of Phiadelphia, and we can't wait to go back and learn even more! I can't say enough amazing things about Jason and the tour...you have to experience this on your own!!! Thank you Jason for making this such an incredible experience for us!

“One of the best days of my vacation----did the Rocky tour---loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

If you are a fan of rocky then this is a "must" on your to do list.
We did a half day rocky tour and you are shown many sites where the movie was filmed including rocky's apartment, paulies apartment, the gym, the famous rocky steps (it was a dream to run up those steps), the pet shop, Adrians restaurant (shown in rocky balboa), italian markets and other sites.
The best way to do this is on this tour.
Our tour guide was amazing and very nice and not only did he show us the movies sites but also provided us with a insight into the history of Philadelphia--Thank you so much
We stopped off at a store where can can purchase customised clothing ie tees/pants with rocky on them. the tees were only USD 5.00 each incl the print. the store owners were also very friendly and helpful.
We also stopped off at the famous Pat's king of steaks...famous for their cheese steaks.

Thanks you so much for this tour---

“Rocky Tour was great! Relaxing for a 4-hour half day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011 via mobile

Having the DVD in the car showed film locations exactly. Jason mixed historical locations in the city with all the Rocky locations. I have a 7 year old son who really liked the tour and especially the last stop at the Museum and the Rocky 'steps'
