      Food with a History Lesson
      An amazing tour of the city, trying not only classic Philly but new foods that I wouldn't have tried on my own. Nina was a wealth of knowledge with food, history, and visiting the city.

      Good times with Barry
      Barry was an excellent tour guide and he brought his own experiences of Philly history and art. We now have a deeper understanding of murals and the delicious food that Philly has to offer. Thanks Barry!

      Old Philly Tour with Dick
      Dick was a fantastic tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and was a great storyteller, he knew how to keep his audience entertained with so many fun and interesting facts I had never heard before. I learned more in 2 hours than in a year of history class. I would highly recommend a tour with Dick!

      Amish Country is a great learning experience
      This was a great first-time experience for me as I always knew about the Amish but not the culture as much. Tom was fantastic and very knowledgeable, answering the group's questions while we enjoyed the countryside. It was a nice day trip to end my week in Pennsylvania.

    Despite the rave reviews I read about this tour prior to booking, I would rate this tour just average. Although we had listed the attractions we wanted to visit, our tour left out some key ones and instead included others that we didn’t really have an interest in. Note that your guide does NOT attend certain attractions with you - Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Congress Hall, Betsy Ross House, etc. He drives you to them and drops you off for those tours and then picks you up again when they conclude. (Tour did handle booking tickets to Independence Hall for us.) I felt like our guide also discouraged us from adding attractions onto our agenda that the company covers in other separate tours (ie, Valley Forge) and even talked us out of visiting them on our own time after the tour ended (US Mint). Our tour guide, Owen, came highly recommended by other reviewers, but I found him to be just so-so. Overall, I didn’t feel like the tour (which was quite expensive) really added any value vs hopping the city transportation and visiting the historic attractions on your own.

    Barry was a fantastic tour guide! He was very knowledgeable about Philadelphia history, hot spots, and best local eats! We did the 6 hour tour and stopped for lunch at Campo’s Philly Cheesesteaks & it was a 10/10! He took us to all the stops we wanted (including Independence Hall, the LOVE statue, etc) but also took us by some hidden gems like a house covered in mosaics! We were so impressed and saw Philly in the BEST light thanks to Barry!

    We had a recent trip to the DC area and decided to take a train ride to Philadelphia for the day. We weren’t sure what we wanted to do; so, we did some research and came across this private tour that had a little bit of everything and took a chance.

    Upon our arrival, we met up with Barry as he picked us up at the train station and shared our itinerary for the day. He shared his knowledge about Philadelphia’s rich history as a local. He talked about the capitol building, the city’s roots, the present, and what’s coming in the future. Our day was an ADVENTURE! We saw where everything began in the historic part of the city like Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross’ house, and the oldest continuous lived-on street in the US! We also got to see Philly through murals, Little Italy, art, and traditions. We got to see a house full of mosaics, the Rocky steps, and the LOVE sculpture! Barry recommended & drove us to some authentic Philly cheesesteaks at Campos that were 10/10! The day flew by and we enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. I HIGHLY recommend not only this tour, but Barry was a tour guide! He was genuinely knowledgeable about all the questions we had, kind, helpful, and kept us engaged the whole day! I truly had the best time with my family and I felt there was no better way to go!

    This tour was fantastic. We were picked up promptly at our hotel at the arranged time, in a very clean and comfortable van. Adam was our tour guide, and he did a wonderful job. His knowledge of Philadelphia history was outstanding and exactly what we hoped for. Adam allowed us to customize our tour according to the sites we wanted to see, which were primarily historical. Adam took us to Reading Terminal Market, Independence Hall, Congress Hall, the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross house, and the Philadelphia Mint. He provided so much information on the way to each location, including driving by other significant sites along the way. Adam was courteous and helpful with my husband who required a wheelchair to visit most places. He also took us to Campo’s to pick up a delicious Philly Steak sandwich on our way back to the hotel. We had a wonderful day with Adam as our tour guide and highly recommend this tour.

    This is such a thoughtful review. Thank you for taking the time to write this! You hit every reason why is worthwhile to book a private tour of Philadelphia. The amount of info you get and the sites you see, all while relaxing and riding in a clean and comfortable van makes for an unforgettable tour!

    Tom's passion for Philadelphia and extensive knowledge of its history and landmarks shone through from start to finish, making our first day in Philly amazing. He was flexible and allowed us to get out or stay in the car anywhere he took us. He picked up on one of my family's neurodiversity and rolled with it beautifully. It was perfect. Thank you!

    James was a spectacular guide! My parents, sisters and I enjoyed our day with him riding around Philly and learning about its history! His depth of knowledge as a PhD-level guide was exceptional. Even more so, he was lighthearted and kind and made our tour fun and memorable! Highly recommend James for anyone.

    James our tour guide was very knowledgeable with everything about the tour. He has a PHD in history, so you can’t get wrong with him. He also grew up in Philadelphia, he knows all the things around the place very much. He was also very kind and accommodating. We had lots of fun.

    From start to finish, this was an incredible experience. Ariel scheduled a time to personally talk with me about our expectations. Owen picked us up at our condo door and had been thoroughly briefed on what we wanted. He knew out of the way historical sites and expertly shared facts. He kept us laughing along the way. We saw more of Philadelphia than we could ever have seen by ourselves. Totally worth the time and money.

    We are very proud of our guides (especially Owen, who gives wonderful driving tours), but it's the entire team that makes a memorable Urban Adventures experience possible. So thank you for remarking on Ariel's effort and assistance while booking your tour. She is amazing! And yes, in addition to the famous landmarks, our driving tours take you to the nooks and crannies of Philadelphia that most visitors don't even know exist. We have many other tours too, so please come back to Philly and keep exploring the City of Brotherly Love!

    We had a long layover in Philly on outer way to London and thought this would be a great way to spend the afternoon. Owen was an absolute delight! He picked us up from the airport and took us to all the Philly highlights. He was so knowledgeable about the city and took us to all the best places. I would highly recommend this tour to get to know Philly!

    My two adult daughters and I took a 7-hour private driving tour of Philadelphia with Ben. We can't say enough good things about Ben or the day...Ben was a terrific, super knowledgeable guide. He took us to many of the sites we wanted, plus more, was able to give us much history of the whole city, recommended the perfect place for lunch, and just made our day perfect. We felt that we had a good introduction to Philadelphia, and also came away with recommendations for other things to do. I highly recommend a tour through Philly Tour Hub with Ben.
