We were stranded in Philadelphia 2 nights because of canceled flights and decided to take a tour of the city to fill some time. We selected Awfully Nice Tours because an ad stated "custom tours" and they certainly did cater to what we wanted. Owen, the tour guide, was very knowlegable and gave great details of everything we saw. The... More

It was my first time in Philadelphia, and I have to say, this is the best way to see the city! Our tour guide, Mike, was SO personable and made the experience so fun and entertaining. His unique stories and insights about the history and culture of Philly were great, and I learned so many different things. The segways were... More

Just a quick note to share with the TA community my enthusiasm for today's philly cheesesteak tour on a segway, led by Barry: Loved every single moment of the experience! My initial hesitation (fear basically) to ride for the first time a segway, swiftly transformed to confidence and pure joy, only because Barry was attentive, patient and such a graceful... More

The reviews could not be more accurate. With the help of our incredible tour guide, Barry, me and my two good friends were treated to an unforgettable afternoon. Despite being from Philly and having a strong familiarity with the city (and cheesesteaks), we were able to see our beautiful city in a whole new way! We were accompanied by another... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts about your tour experience with Philly by Segway. All of this feedback is certainly appreciated.

What more can you say about a company that already has 950 five-star ratings (as of today)? We chose this group based in part on the great reviews they had on this site - and we were not disappointed. We chose the two hour city tour and had a great time. Our guide (Barry) was fun, knowledgeable and very capable.... More

My hubby and adult sons were very keen to Segway on a recent trip to the USA from Australia. Me, I was a little apprehensive. Barry, our guide, was extremely patient - with enough authority to get me "up to speed" when necessary and make me feel safe and confident. I almost bailed in the first block - Barry encouraged...
