I book d this tour for two for my boyfriends birthday. We had such a fun time!! Our guide was very knowledgeable and so funny! Next time we’re in Philly we will be sure to book again!!
This tour was a wonderful mix of historic information and entertainment. It was very relaxed, had good restroom stops, and ensured we were able to run the Rocky steps. Although you don't stop at every location and it's left to you to go back to things like the Liberty Bell (rightfully so since the line is typically pretty long), we far preferred this tour over tours like the Hop On/Hop Off buses. Plus, you can bring drinks with you! Absolutely would recommend this tour.
I thought you gave us a great overview of the city and Philadelphia's history. The tour was the perfect way to start our trip and we found ourselves referencing your comments later as in "oh there's the square that's now shaped like a circle for better traffic flow". You were very entertaining and I felt like we heard stories that we might not have heard on a more generic tour. Also, just the right number of bathroom breaks. If you're looking for any recommendations, I might suggest smiling a bit more and laying off the New Jersey jokes, but I would definitely recommend your tour.
Tim was a great tour guide and provided a lot of information about the city with enjoyable humor. This just seemed a little more like herding a group of cattle and didn't provide the same quality of attention received in smaller groups that we experienced on the Segway and Yo Rocky Tour. It was a a fun and relaxing tour that allowed me to kick back and enjoy a cold brew.
Our guide, Tim was fantastic! He was under the weather and on his third tour of the day when we arrived. Our tour included two rowdy groups (rightfully so), a Bachelorette and a Birthday party who were more interested in enjoying their time together rather than hearing the history of Philly. My husband and I were also celebrating (anniversary) and enjoyed the tour and people immensely. Seeing that we were genuinely interested in the history and scenery, Tim went out of his way to ensure we were able to hear and participate in the tour. It is definitely not easy to cater to everyone but Tim was able to please the masses and give us a great time. We would definitely do this again and recommend it to anyone visiting Philly.
Tim was funny, personable and very knowledgeable. We had a great time, I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
We had an awesome time. Tim was funny and knows his city well. It was definitely the highlight of our day!!
Our guide was not only informative he was entertaining. My family of five from ages, 25 to 54 enjoyed it. The best $ spent . On our vacation. We were given excellent choices for Philly steak & cheese. I would recommend this tour to anyone. If the byob is intimidating don't be concerned. Some drank others did not . All 35 people from all ages and walks of life were fun and respectful. Karen L.K. Picard
Great host, very informative and tons of fun. Would take it again!!
Great trip good jokes and lots of cool history. Both Tim and the driver were great.
Overall great! Tim had a lot of energy which always makes history more fun. One suggestion would be to deliver the message a little slower, but keeping the energy. It was hard to hear everything. Very much appreciated the bathroom breaks and being able to get out at different sites. BYOB was a lot of fun! Overall, great! We really enjoyed ourselves!
A fun and exciting way to tour the city. Great energy, and very informative. Wonderful and positive driver and tour guide added to the excitement of activity.
Great concept for a tour. High energy guide woth relevant and entertaining stories. Will def recommend to others.
This is my second time on this tour and it will not be my last! The tour is a wonderful and unique way to see the city of Philadelphia. Between the various stops and historical sites, to the comic relief and drinks (BYOB) you get to enjoy, this tour is two thumbs up!! Highly recommend for birthdays, bachelor or bachelorette parties, family fun day or even a date! You WILL NOT be disappointed!
Informative and funny stories, ample time to get out and take pictures, LOVE the BYOB option. The only complaint was that the tour guide spoke so loudly for the back of the bus to hear him, that the front of the bus went deaf. The trolley tour guides in Old Town San Diego use the microphone and speak in a normal tone. Works much better!
We had such a great time. Learned a lot and laughed a lot. I would highly recommend this tour.
We had a great time, Tim was very friendly, and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting philly
We booked a tour with some friends to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had a great time! Tim kept us laughing and also shared some history that we (as locals) hadn't heard before. We got to see a lot more of the city than expected and made a few fun stops along the way. I'd def recommend this!!
This tour is a MUST DO in Philly! It gave the perfect amount of history with the perfect amount of comedy. Tim and his wife are amazing! They are organized, friendly, and try so hard to accommodate everyone. Who doesn't love the combination of trolley, history, alcohol, and comedy?!
Tour was hilarious, informative, and went to a diverse and interesting set of sites. The guide was passionate, knew how to get the crowd into the tour, and adapted well to some unpredictable shutdowns at the Museum of Art. The trolley car was nice and comfortable on an otherwise cold and wet day. If I could add 2 suggestions: 1) cupholders on the trolley would be really helpful 2) a little more care in booking, as the trolley seemed to have 1 more person than it could comfortable accommodate.
This was my second time taking the tour of Philadelphia and just like the first one it was great !
Had a great time on our byob trolley tour with Tim and Abbey this past weekend. Tim has a great way of telling the history of the city with humor and jokes along the way. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a tour of the city or something fun to do with friends on the weekend!!
