Great way to see major historical sights in Philadelphia. Educational. Enjoyed it very much.
It was a good introduction for our Philadelphia visit.
Great tour. The best way to see these interesting places, we had a short time in the city and the tour was the best way to get the most out of our stay.
The tour was very educational,with the areas the tour took, Society Hill, South Street etc and then into the Delaware river , very nice.
Great, fun way to see the City of Brotherly Love and get an introduction into Philadelphia's history which you should already know, of course! and places of interest. If you have to sit at the back - beware of the splash!
Excellent tour with knowledgeable and friendly guide. You will see pointsplaces of interest that you probably would miss if you did a "do it yourself" version.
The itinerary was fairly comprehensive and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Seeing the historical sites gave us a good overview of which sites we wanted to return to for a more thorough visit.
so much fun. we got a couple of strange looks when we got aboard without any children but that didn't bother us. you learn about the history and sights of philapelphia without having to walk and we even got some quackers to use and take home and a dip into the delaware river.
This was very informative also and helped us decide what we wanted to see when we returned to Philadelphia a few days later.
Our tour guide was book-learning student and brought some formal knowledge to this walking tour. For example, while stopping in front of Independence Hall, the guide gave his take on historical events but the participants chimed in, too. I liked the aspect of "walking" since it made one feel like being back in the 1700s with all the physical landmarks, cobblestones, and brickwork especially great was walking thru the Franklins Post Office and then on to the outline of his family home. The mid-day slot made the tour right for encountering on-the-spot dramatic performances associated with parks and landmarks.The guide mentioned the role Franklin's wife, Deborah, played in complementing his life and times. The duration or 2.5 hours was just the right amount of time to enjoy the tour
A very enthusiastic tour guide gave us plently of drama! I loved the folk story he told us with his booming and youthful voice. I really appreciate young people after I took this tour, in general. He really knew his stuff and made everybody happy and entertained. I like that it was offered at night in the dark because it made me remember playing outside in the dark when I was a youth with all the walking we did. The tour guide was a very excellent storyteller! I am pleased we talked by and the tour guide gave narration that many of the building were empty but had caretakers.
Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide made all the difference!
Our group loved this tour. Betsy Ross was our guide and she really added to the success of the whole experience. She was very knowledgeable about the tour info and it was very clear she enjoyed her job. This was the first time our whole family had been together in almost 8 years as we have 2 sons in the military, and the group shot of all of us including all of our grandchildren before we boarded the vehicle was the first family photo we'd had taken in almost 10 years! It was a great picture of all of us! That alone was worth the cost my husband and I had paid for us to all take this tour. Thank you, Ride the Ducks... and Betsy Ross!

It was fun to see the historic city from the street and the water.
