The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. He wore a mask and i never once felt like my health was compromised. The horse (Brutis) had water stations during the ride and was treated the way a owner spoils his dog. I would definitely do it again!

This tour is a wonderful way to learn about the city at a calm and delightful way. Our tour guide, Michael was very informative and we learned a lot about the historic venue of the "City of Brotherly Love". The hour in the carriage went by much too fast but we had the opportunity to see how the city was laid out and find places that we wanted to return to on foot afterwards.

This hop-on hop-off bus hits all the top attractions in Philadelphia. We enjoyed 2 different guides, and they were both great. The bus drivers were good, too. It is easy to purchase the tickets online and price is reasonable.
