“Very Flexible Tour with a Great Guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

I choose Awfully Nice Tours because of the flexibility and customization of the tours. We had a group of new employees that are moving to the Philly area and we wanted to show them different sections of the city to live in as well learn the history of the area. Jason did a great job as tour guide and was knowledgeable and gave great suggestions of restaurants, places to live and places to go. He was really friendly and kept checking with the group to see if there were different areas of the city they wanted to see. Not only did we get the customize the trip before we started but we were even able to add stops, including Reading Terminal Market, while we were out which was a great aspect of the tour. I will definitely use Awfully Nice Tours again!

“Great Tailor Made Tour of a Fascinating City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

Andy was able to accomodate our limited schedule and provided us with a great experience in Philadelphia. We spent a fun afternoon seeing everything we hoped to see and so many unexpected little gems. There is no way that we could have seen and learned so much on our own. It was like travelling around the city with an old friend.

Thank you so much Andy, your tour was one of the highlights of our trip and I will highly recommend you to anyone we know. Philadelphia is lucky to have such an excellent ambassador!

“Thanks Jason, Greg and Chuck!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

Traveled to Philadelphia for the weekend with my girlfriend (mid-20's couple) and met Jason for a Friday evening custom 6 hour History Tour mixed with a Beer Tour and it was a blast. The next day we met Greg for a Soul of the City tour and caught parts of the city that we didn't see with Jason (by Jason's design as he knew we had the tour the next day). Greg is an awesome tour guide and we had a chance to explore the city a little more soberly (haha). Later that night we met Chuck for the Philly on Tap tour. Chuck did an amazing job and we were very disappointed to have to depart the last bar early for a dinner engagement because we would have loved to hang around with him and the other couple on the tour to continue discussing Philly's rich beer history. Overall these 3 tour guides all had 5 star performances, next time I'm in Philadelphia I am going to be looking to go on new tours with the company. Thanks again guys, sorry if we were a little rambunctious, we tried to stay on our best behavior!

“Nice Driving Tour - Very Flexible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

The owner Andy showed the wife and I around Philly. He was great with the perfect personality for us. We rode in a van which was very comfortable. Water was available. Andy was flexible as we tried to get a mixture of historic, mural, and food tours (within a 4 hour trip). Highly recommended. You may like walking more, but the van trip was perfect. We saw exactly what we wanted to....and Andy delivered....Thanks Andy!

“9th Street Market and Pub Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Both tours were great but the 9th Street Market Tour was the highlight of the weekend. You get to meet the local merchants, try samples and really get to know the history and all the great attractions in the city that you would not know unless you were a local. The layout of the 9th Street market tour is great as they start you on one end of the market and you work your way all the way to the end and eventually end at Pat and Geno's steak shops. The tour guides were fun, knowledgeable and really help guide you around the city. Great tours that I would highly recommend.
