Honestly, I don’t often leave bad reviews on sites as there is usually a saving grace to any service, but this was the only low point of a 2 week family holiday to NY, Wash, Philadelphia. Guide was incomprehensible (I am a native English speaker)...More

Tour was fun w/beautiful visits to historical sights at night in Philadelphia. I gave it a 4 because although the tour guide was knowledgeable, occasionally the level of his voice was too loud and therefore hard to understand him

Our tour guide, Connor, was really good. He spoke clearly, loud enough and with lively charm that fit the mood of the event perfectly. The family had a ton of fun and that is enough to say we got our money’s worth. The tour was...More
