BYOB Historically Hilarious Trolley Tour of Philadelphia

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Philadelphia's only BYOB tour! Led by a self proclaimed "failed comedian turned failed teacher turned comedic teacher," it's the most fun you'll ever have on a tour. Bring a 6 pack of your favorite beer or a bottle of wine and relax on our trolley as you're entertained with great story telling and the best (worst) jokes you've ever heard on a tour. Get a local's take on the City of Brotherly Love with this family owned and operated small business.
  • Relax with a drink in hand (BYOB) as the sights of Philadelphia go by
  • Travel among Philadelphia highlights with ease on a trolley
  • See more of Philadelphia in less time—a great choice for first-time visitors
  • Choose from two departure times to easily fit this tour into your schedule
What to Expect
Tote a six-pack or a bottle of wine and meet your guide at a convenient central location to board a trolley for your Philadelphia sightseeing tour. Travel past all of the city’s major landmarks and hear stories about Philadelphia that even some locals don’t know. Hop off to explore City Hall, Love Park, and Boathouse Row, and ask a friend to hold your beer while you run up the famous Rocky Steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Next follow your guide through the streets of the historic Old City to see Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House, Franklin Court, Carpenters’ Hall, and Declaration House, where Thomas Jefferson lived while drafting the Declaration of Independence. Wander down Elfreth’s Alley, the nation’s oldest continuously inhabited residential street where your tour ends.

Seriously one of the best tours I have been on! The combination of history and comedy was the best! My 22 year old son, mom and I all loved it! Thanks Tim!

I was looking for a tour that was both different and fun and this tour was just that. We were with my daughter and her boyfriend who live outside Philadelphia and have visited many of the historic places. We enjoyed the humor (cargos shorts jokes)...More

Really enjoyed this tour. It provides a great overview of the major Phila attractions and city layout. Tim was knowledgeable, considerate and fun! Only criticism is that he needs to speak more slowly and clearly. Would definitely recommend doing the trolly tour :)More

It is part of the downtown and pier area. So parking is fair game in the street, parking lots, or along towards the pier and walk over.

Your best bet would probably be to contact founding footsteps on facebook. This is trip advisor and not them specifically
