Best Philly experience! I have been to Philadelphia many times, but this tour was worth every penny. It was engaging and in depth. Adam is an amazing guide, he understands and brings History to life. The tour vehicle is comfortable and spacious, everyone including my wheelchair bound Dad was very comfortable. We felt very safe and secure. Adam followed all Covid related precautions adding an extra level of comfort for our family. I am so pleased we took this tour. It’s one that I plan to take again once I am back in the area! Thank you again for making a memorable our trip so memorable!

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!

Mom and I have mobility issues but on this tour we saw the highlights from the car. Owen was great as the guide and came away knowing the basics of the city.

Adam, our tour guide, was welcoming and full of amazing info. We did a private two hour tour of the city which helped us see sights we would have never caught on our own and gave us an overview of the city to build on for the rest of our time there. Adam was full of historical knowledge which he delivered with great story telling skills. We had two kids with us who enjoyed the tour as well. We highly recommend this experience and Adam. He made our trip to Philadelphia over the top awesome!

Wow. Best. Adam. Ever. Thanks so much for your shout-out to Adam on his driving tour. He (and we!) really appreciate it. We're so glad you enjoyed our beautiful city, and we hope to see you back again sometime!

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.
