The tour was very...

The tour was very pleasant. Our tour guide Alexandra was lovely. She was very bubbly, polite, caring and approachable. She filled the tour with knowledge and fun facts. Felt a tad rushed, but would definitely recommend.

The wonderful explanations by Jim. The selection of stops was excellent. The bus timing was very convenient
Great tour guide
, Apr 2022
Bruce was very knowledgeable, and animated in his guided tour of the city. I also think that he should be commended for his ability to work under pressure, he had to stand the entire time, dodging branches and struggling to hold himself up on a moving bus. At times being tossed around a bit. But he still managed to keep the focus on the city
Alright, but would not do again
, Apr 2022
I would recommend this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable on the history of Philadelphia. The only downside was there are not enough buses operating at one time so you have to wait over an hour for another bus if you decide to hop off and sight see.

I got my tickets for Wednesday March 2nd, and I even call to confirm where the Tour would start, however , once I got to the place referred, just then the Tour Operator told me that they do not tour on Wednesday!!!! Since I was with my family and we did not wanted to miss the City Sightseeing of Philadelphia, we decided to take the tour the next day without complaints. Next day, the tour guide was so obnoxious, we could not really enjoy the tour , and on top of that, the bus did not make the stops that it was supposed to … the headset did not work either… horrible service !
Knowledgeable and friendly
, Feb 2022
The guide very kindly gave us the time to take a photo at the Rocky Balboa steps. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Does anybody do their jobs appropriately anymore??
, Oct 2021
We waited over 90 minutes for a tour bus. The person answering the phones did not know that buses were being rerouted and told us to just wait! When we finally went to the home station where buses wait to take off, we were told they were being rerouted! What a waste of a morning!
Wonderful experience with Mike in particular.
, Oct 2021
Mike has researched his facts and shares his love of Philadelphia in an interesting presentation. We felt safe with Kiana behind the wheel, especially after an unexpected detour.
The historical Philadelphia tour
, Sep 2021
We got to see the places we came to see in a very swift manor. We would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the sights without having to drive themselves around.
Excellent Tour
, Sep 2021
These type of excursions are only as good as the tour guide and driver. Both were excellent! The guide was knowledgeable, funny and helpful. The driver was amazing getting in and out of Philly traffic and narrow streets. Definitely recommend this tour
