Our tour guide pulled all the stops. He dressed and looked the part, had phenomenal knowledge and was extremely lovely. The tour was supposed to last a certain amount, but he gave us so much more extra. Go on this tour, buy his guide and, you never know, you may even get a surprise at the end! Highly recommend!! +++++

Best Tour in Philly!!

This has to be the best tour in Philadelphia! I booked the tour for me and my father (who is a musician) and even though my dad knows A LOT of musical history, he still learned so much. The tour guide, Clayton, is amazing and super knowledgeable about the musical history of Philadelphia. The tour bus and ride was comfortable and we were able to visit so many parts of the city - from Center City to South Philly to the Rocky steps at the Art Museum. Clayton gave live commentary (including personal experiences) along with video clips on the bus monitors. My father and I had such a wonderful time - we highly recommend the tour and even though we did the short tour, we will be back for the 3 hour tour!! (P.S. - buy the program booklet, totally worth it!) ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Top Notch Music History Tour

What a wonderful experience of music and history in the city of brotherly love! I booked this tour for my best friend on his birthday since he is a big fan of both music and the city of Philadelphia. We had no idea the treat we were in for. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, charismatic and funny. We learned so much about the city’s history revolving around music and learned that some of our favorite artists are from Philadelphia! I would 10/10 recommend this tour for anyone! Whether you’re local or visiting, this tour is sure to surprise and delight you! There’s also an incredible surprise at the end!

My husband, son and I had an amazing afternoon on our Musical Historical bus tour through the city of brotherly love. While driving we listened to and watched very memorable clips of the music of good old days. So much research and history was shared with us during this very comfortable bus ride with a great host! We highly recommend this tour for everyone.
