The tour was a ton of fun. Not only did we see great sites in a relaxed and fun environment, but we learned some fun and interesting history. Although I didn't have my kids (ages 10 and 12) with me, it would still have been appropriate. Tim was a great guide - very accommodating and aware of his audience. We highly recommend!
We had a fantastic time on the tour. The guide, Warren, was super enthusiastic and engaging and the others on the tour were so much fun. There was a gentlemen celebrating his 90th birthday and he was a total rock star! He shared his knowledge of Philly and Warren set the tone that his memories were appreciated so everyone encouraged his sharing. It made the whole experience extra special. There were some mid-twenty year olds that ran the music and we all just drank and jammed and enjoyed Philly. It was really a great tour with everyone having a great time!
The tour was a blast. Great mix of relaxing and informative. It is owned and operated by local Philly people and it clearly shows. BYOB is perfect for an sort of get together. It was one of the most fun tours I have ever been on.
Tim is amazing. I can't say it enough how well worth the time and money it was to spend a couple of hours on the trolley with him. Thanks for making us laugh and learn a little about history.
The tour was very fun with all of the top site in Philly included.. The guide was very knowledgeable and had the bus laughing!. The BYOB is a definiate plus!
We had a girls weekend and decided to take a tour! This was so much fun. I would definitely recommend this. You get some history, see Rocky and a party on a trolly. Be ready to laugh
Fantastic tour. Very informative and funny. Altogether a great experience.
Cannot express how happy I am with my experience! Tim was amazing and so down to earth. I enjoyed being able to take a break in the middle of the tour and go climb the Rocky steps and take a bathroom break. My group of 9 had a such a blast, I HIGHLY recommend this tour!
Kept it interesting despite not having the sound system up and running and some distracting phone/text interruptions. Thanks for a great time.
The tour was great, our group had a great time and it was fun and informative, thanks so much!
Our host and driver were very helpful and Tim did a great job explaining all the sites with humor too
Everything about the tour was awesome. Funny, informative, and inspiring.
The perfect balance of informative and irreverent! A great deal of respect for our country's history without taking ourselves too seriously. Great tour!
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!
