We booked for a surprisingly cool Sept. 1st trolley ride. It is an enclosed trolley with windows that go up and down which was key to staying dry. Tim was the best, most animated tour guide with a heart of gold. We were the outliers, being 40 years older than the average but he included us in his routine. The history lesson was amazing, I wish he had a handout to read at a later time. The fun facts about Ben Franklineverybody drink, and the city of love were also great. The busdriver super sober and a 5 star driver, he had to reroute the trip due to the parkway being closed, made me feel like I could relax and have a good time. We walked to Campos for 5 cheese steaks.
Had a wonderful time seeing Philadelphia on this informative and very entertaining tour. Tim was incredible! I was disappointed that some of the places we were looking forward to seeing weren't available, especially the Rocky statue.
I really enjoyed this tour. I found them on TripAdvisor and was impressed with the ratings so I talked my friend into going on the tour. We arrived 15 minutes before the tour was set to take off in Old Town, only to be told that we were the only people who had signed up for the Saturday afternoon tour. They offered to give us the tour if we still wanted it -- and this being the only day that we had available in town, we went for it. SO GLAD we did!! We either drove by or stopped at all the touristy points of interest in Philly including City Hall, the Rocky Steps at the Museum of Art, drove by Constitution hall twice and plenty of other interesting places. I would highly recommend this highly entertaining and energetic tour! I will also mention we went on the tour on what was probably the hottest day of the summer in the middle of the afternoon not ideal conditions for the a/c-less trolley tour... but they were so nice to offer an endless supply of cold water bottles throughout the tour. Thank you!!
As it turned out, only the two of us had booked the tour, but that didn't stop them from offering to take us out on our own personal tour. We had a great time, and loved the personal touch. Our guide was very knowledgeable and it was one of the best tours I've ever taken. Would recommend them in a heartbeat.
