I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to learn a little about Philadelphia but not wanting the daytime crowds. Also great for an after convention activity.

We were ready to sit since we had been on our feet all day so this was a perfect way to continue to learn more about Philadelphia. Our tour guide was amazing with so much knowledge to share. Sorry I don’t recall his name but we did the 8 pm tour on 9/16. Highly recommend!

My daughter and I enjoyed it. Did it our first night in town. Beautiful views and we had a great tour guide. The only drawback for me personally was it wasn't very well organized. We got there and didn't know where to check in, no one really offered to help us, boarded late.

I had an evening in Philly before flying out the next day and this looked like an interesting thing to do, but trying to book online at the last minute it showed not available. I called them and they said there is guaranteed availability if you show up to the meeting spot

Hello SeanPsyD, Thank you for choosing Philadelphia Trolley Works & Big Bus. I am pleased you enjoyed our Philly By Night tour. Purchasing tickets for all our tours can be done on site the day of the tour, so I do apologize for any confusion the on line purchase caused. Thank you for acknowledging our guide. All our guides are expert, and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge of the city's rich history and current events with visitors. The Art Museum and Boat House Row are particularly beautiful at night, lit up in lights, and the Philly By Night tour is a great way to experience those sites. I am pleased our tour helped to inspire you to visit the city again.
