Our Philly By Night tour offers a spectacular view of the city after dark, when our skyline is beautifully transformed with lights. The tour passes by historic sites such as the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, and makes a stop at the Philadelphia Art Museum's "Rocky Steps" where you can snap a photo with the hometown hero or run to the top of the steps for the best view of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and City Hall. The tour also travels through historic Society Hill and along Penn's Landing.

The tour was a great time and Jacob was the perfect amount of funny and informative. There was no reading from cue cards, he knows the city inside and out. The driver was excellent as well with the perfect timing!

I almost didn’t do this tour because I’m traveling alone with my 12 year old son. One of the reviews said the pick up was in an unsafe location. At the last minute I went ahead and booked. So glad I did! The pick up location is right across the street from Reading Market and right next to the downtown Marriot. Perfectly fine!!! They even had a shuttle bus come and pick me up from my downtown hotel and drive me there! It was fun, kept my 12 year old son interested, had a lot if Philly character, great eating recommendations and all around amazing night. Totally worth it! And I’m a cheapskate!!!

Was in Philly for the weekend with some good friends. We decided to do this instead of doing each individual activity. The 90 min tour was great to see so much of Philly in a concise manner. We ate dinner before at Hard Rock Cafe. All in a all a good tour and we sat on top. Bring a sweater.

This tour was very good. The best part was the stop at the Rocky statue where we ran up the steps. The city of Philadelphia looks great at night and the tour did a good job at showing us the historical sites.

I enjoyed the tour and sights, it was a great way to get the most of my business trip. The bus was clean, the commentary was both informative, light-hearted . There is one stop on the famous "rocky steps" and you get to see the skyline by night
