I expected something different. Mostly old renovated row homes. Would have been better to walk. Nice kid. Very knowledgeable. Carriage was old and in bad condition.

Hell Bill_M, The tour route does cover many of the most historic sites and neighborhoods in Philadelphia, but I am sorry to hear that the tour was not quite what you were expecting. We do our best to keep our equipment in good condition, but I will certainly follow up with the appropriate department to make sure that we are maintaining the highest standards possible. Thank you for the positive feedback regarding the tour guide. Sincerely, 76 Carriage Company

Falsely Advertised
Sheera_T
, Aug 2021
This tour was falsely advertised. We didn't see most of the attractions that were advertised. We arrived promptly but were only given a 43 minute tour. The tour is advertised as 55-60 minutes, but this wasn't even close. Additionally, the tour is advertised as seeing certain attractions, but we only saw a couple of them. While we did see other interesting things, they shouldn't advertise a tour that they just don't deliver. We have to now go see those things on our own and we are very limited on time. The carriage ride itself, as well as the tour guide, were pleasant. However this is a falsely advertised (and therefore overpriced) attraction.
