Ben and Bill are the greatest duo Historic Philly has ever seen. Had the most relaxing experience on a 30 minute ride around Society Hill and South Street. Highly recommended!

I recommend the hour tour for $100. It's fun and informative. You really get to see how amazing and historic Philadelphia is. You also get to see how impatient it's drivers are when trying to get around a horse.
