Cheri_N, May 2023
Our tour guide, Tom, was what made the tour memorable and fun. He had facts and stories he shared, was always upbeat and eager to make sure we had the best experience possible. He was sensitive to our needs as well. It was absolutely the highlight of our trip to Philadelphia.

My niece and nephew especially enjoyed the history, Fairmont Park, Reading Terminal, and the Italian Market. Tom Courtney was an excellent tour guide who managed to drive us around Philadelphia seamlessly--dropping us off and then joining us after he parked. The car was comfortable and clean. It was a special day for this Aunt!
Great time
