Loved this tour! This is the best way to discover so much of Philadelphia. The tour guide (Jim) was so great and I am glad we took his advice to do the entire tour before deciding which stops to make. The flexibility of the schedule and stops were perfect! Great way to get around town. Note - Mario was helpful, too. Thank you all!
