Average 4.81 out of 5 stars based on 16 verified reviews from Cool Philadelphia and TripAdvisor
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.
