This was the first time we ever went on vacation to a major city and "hired" somebody to do a tour rather than trying to do it ourselves. Back in July we called Awefully Nice Tours only a week before getting there and was able to schedule a tour for the following Monday.

We met Chris at our hotel and we knew immediately after sensing his style of humor that he would fit into our family very well (there was 5 of us). We only had a half a day but we felt like we covered a lot of ground with him. He was very knowledgeable of Philadelphia and presented the city in a fun, but fact-filled way. We wish we could have taken the full day tour but were happy with the time we had. If you figure trying to fight the Philly traffic (which can be a hassle sometimes) and trying to find parking spaces and some of the entry fees we also feel like the tour was a pretty decent value.

All in all we had a great time and would recommend this company to anyone. Based on this and other reviews you should know that this is a great tour.

Our group of 4 arrived a little early and Owen (our guide) got us straight on the segways after filling in all the paperwork and completing the safety presentation. He was patient and no one left until everyone was comfortable on the segways. He did a good job with the tour and got across lots of interesting facts to our group. It was great value for money at $50 and we covered 10 miles which was way more than some of the other companies were offering. They also take photos for you and send them to your email. I would recommend this tour to people as a great way to orientate yourself with the City while learning some of the history.

Our first Segway experience was last year with another touring company. They didn't have a time period/price we needed this time around so we looked for another provider. Philly by Segway was less expensive and the Segway experience was worth the cost at $50+ per person. The location in Old City was convenient and there was a parking garage across the street, along with shops to buy water, snacks. Josh, our guide, was friendly and accomodating. The facility was indoors which felt a little more secure when training if one was a first time user. There were lockers to store items not needed while touring. All in all, Philly by Segway provided a fun experience and Segway is THE way to get around town and see the sites! We would recommend using this company.
We learned the company was new to the business compared to other providers, so that could have explained the few kinks we experienced such as interruptions during the on site registration process when passersby stopped in to inquire about future trips. Since there was only one staff person, Josh, who tried his best to be friendly to their questions while getting 5 of us registered and trained, we ended up being about 30 minutes behind starting time. Once we got going the tour ended up falling further behind schedule. Our group didn't really care as we enjoyed the experience, but it could have been a problem if someone had dinner reservations or other commitments. Riders were not allowed to take photos during the tour, except at the one rest stop, but Josh took many photos for us as part of the service. There was a problem accessing the photos once posted later that day, but it was resolved by the next day. Again, these were just a few kinks, not deal breakers. You will enjoy your Philly by Segway experience!

I wish we could have spent our entire trip with Chris Kuncio. He loves Philadelphia and it shows. I really appreciate his knowledge and passion for his city along with his easy going personality. It made me want to go back to Philly for another tour. Visiting the Rocky sites was a dream of mine and Chris made it happen, but the best thing about the tour is that it is truly your own tour. They will do pretty much anything you want to do. I highly recommend this company for tours and think Chris Kuncio is one amazing dude(except for the fact he is a Jay-Z and Eagles fan)
