OK I have lived here 3 years and I still love going on this tour. Depending on which tour guide you get, you learn something new about the city every time. Come out and explore a neighborhood you've never been to and learn more about the history of the city than maybe you knew. Even if you know everything, sit on the top of the bus on a nice day! :):)

Philadelphia Trolley Works
Ever since the first giant pumpkin was carved into a carriage, people have wanted to travel in style. Philadelphia Trolley Works, a subsidiary of 76 Carriage Company, turns fairy tales into reality with a fleet of double-decker buses, motor coaches, horse-driven carriages, and their namesake trolleys. On any given day, the historic streets of Philadelphia pulse with trolley or horse-pulled tours of Independence Hall and the Rocky steps. Cinderella-inspired horse-drawn carriages and Victorian-style trolleys transport bridal parties to weddings, and jumbo-sized motor coaches can be rented for casino trips and cross-country air-guitar tours.
