Excellent Tour, fun way to see part of the city

We rode with driver Bill and horse Ben and had wonderful trip around the historic district and society hill. Bill was very knowledgeable and showed us many sights.

This is an easy and relaxing way to see the majority of historical sights in Philadelphia's Old City. The only issue I had with the tour was that the guide was on the younger side and didn't have all of his facts together. He told us wrong information that didn't make any sense (I'm a history nerd). I'm sure there... More

We did this a few years back and it was fantastic, this time it was but not as great. Partly our fault we go there later, and I forgot they had stopped running so we had to take the short ride. Also our buggy was covered which made it hard to hear the driver and take pictures. But all in... More

On a Friday afternoon, my boyfriend and I had changes at work which meant we both had the night off. A rarity, we decided to drive into Philly and explore. I did a little research and discovered 76 tours. I called at 4 to see if I needed a reservation. The lady who answered the phone was so nice and... More

Bob and I and the kids took the one hour ride with the driver Mike and his horse Roland . The carriage was clean the horse healthy and we'll groomed. Mike made a great impression with his presence and his professional knowledge of the history of Philadelphia. Mike was detailed and fun with the children. I would recommend a carriage... More

Reasonable prices for a small group (you can only fit so many people in a carriage), with a personalized tour. Rides are different lengths (and prices) and go to different areas of the National Park, so you can find one that suits your party's needs of the day. I've gone for short rides with my nephews and niece, who have... More

We have done a carriage ride in almost every city in America we've visited and this was fantastic. If you can find another couple to split the hour ride it's well worth it. $25 per person so $100 for the one hour ride around old city Philly. The driver was well knowledgable but sadly like most Americans are only worried... More

Top hat Tommy and his horse Dante showed us a good time. A nice way to see the old city center. The driver was friendly and engaging. A good way to spend a half hour

The 76 Carriage ride was the highlight of our weekend in Philly. The hour tour took use through the historic district to highlight the key sights with a wealth of knowledge from our driver who was a young college student. She had a great way to present history in a manner that did not put you to sleep. Her level... More
