This tour is a wonderful way to learn about the city at a calm and delightful way. Our tour guide, Michael was very informative and we learned a lot about the historic venue of the "City of Brotherly Love". The hour in the carriage went by much too fast but we had the opportunity to see how the city was laid out and find places that we wanted to return to on foot afterwards.

The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. He wore a mask and i never once felt like my health was compromised. The horse (Brutis) had water stations during the ride and was treated the way a owner spoils his dog. I would definitely do it again!

We love history and decided to try a carriage ride. Our driver was a young man home from college and he was very knowledgeable and helpful with our ride. We learned a lot about the different places and time period practices that were used in the 1700’s. We also discovered a chocolate place that we visited later. Definitely well worth the price and we will definitely do it again.

Booked this tour after exiting our visit to the Liberty Bell. We asked for the hour carriage ride since it was a really lovely day and it would allow us the opportunity to see a number of the historic landmarks without hopping on and off a bus. The charge was $150 for the hour. The guide had a lot of commentary during the tour, but it was really difficult to hear what was being said because of the traffic and the fact that he had a face mask on. After a while a gave up trying to listen for most of it and chose just to enjoy the ride. The hour tour turned out to be only 45 minutes, which I thought was a little cheesy. Not sure if this is always the case. Thought that the operator could have been a little friendlier. It would have improved the experience tremendously.

We had a great time on our ride through the historic section of “Old City” Philadelphia. . . We easily jumped on the horse-drawn carriage right next to the liberty bell and Independence hall and we were off! My wife and I personally loved all of the history and insight into the old buildings and past owners, whereas my kids loved checking out the horse and surroundings! Carol (our guide) was great and I would highly recommend. . . Thanks!!!

I had family from England visiting and they wanted to see Philadelphia. We wanted to see several areas and decided a horse drawn carriage would be a great way to go. Bill was our guide and he was an encyclopedia for Philadelphia!! We throughly enjoyed our time with him and his knowledge of Philly. The carriage ride was relaxing and the weather was lovely. It would have taken us all day to walk on foot, the areas covered by the carriage ride and we would not have learned half of what we learned if it weren’t for Bill! Would recommend the Horse Drawn Carriage ride for everyone!

Two bus tour companies are listed on Tripadvisor, but they both accept the other's passengers. This is a good thin

Why no refunds for booking on the wrong day?
Not fair to not tell people there are no tours and then default to the next day and not offer a refund.
