      Food with a History Lesson
      An amazing tour of the city, trying not only classic Philly but new foods that I wouldn't have tried on my own. Nina was a wealth of knowledge with food, history, and visiting the city.

      Good times with Barry
      Barry was an excellent tour guide and he brought his own experiences of Philly history and art. We now have a deeper understanding of murals and the delicious food that Philly has to offer. Thanks Barry!

      Old Philly Tour with Dick
      Dick was a fantastic tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and was a great storyteller, he knew how to keep his audience entertained with so many fun and interesting facts I had never heard before. I learned more in 2 hours than in a year of history class. I would highly recommend a tour with Dick!

      Amish Country is a great learning experience
      This was a great first-time experience for me as I always knew about the Amish but not the culture as much. Tom was fantastic and very knowledgeable, answering the group's questions while we enjoyed the countryside. It was a nice day trip to end my week in Pennsylvania.

    Dale, our tour guide, was a landscape architect and therefore had a vast knowledge of the plants and flowers at Longwood. His route through the garden was based on what we wanted to see. He did an excellent job and allowed us to view the beauty of the garden at our own pace. He was also very knowledgeable of the history of the area. The vehicle was very comfortable and we enjoyed the experience. We would definitely book another tour of the garden during the prime season and would definitely request Dale for our guide.

    We came in to see the Christmas lights at Longwood gardens and they were spectacular! The pickup spot was easily accessed and convenient to the city center. Our tour guide was James and he was wonderful and filled with much knowledge on the area, giving us history on the way to the gardens. The walk in the gardens was the perfect amount and showcased a spectacular show of Christmas lights. The transportation to and from was very comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour, it was well worth our trip into Philly.

    Thank you Kerry! Having that centralized pick up/drop off location makes it easy for our guests to join our tour no matter where in the city they are staying. And you won't see too many places as spectacular as Longwood Gardens, no matter the season.

    Visiting Longwood was a dream come true. When planning the trip pre covid we did not think we could get there because we were not hiring a car. The tour solved all the logistical problems. The bonus was having Dale Russell as our guide - his horticultural expertise in general and knowledge of Longwood in particular was invaluable. His cultural and historical knowledge further enhanced our enjoyment of the tour and his attention to timeliness meant we got to spend enough time at every point and be on time for each event

    My tour guide Dale could lead a trip to the potato chip factory & Id go because he’s so knowledgeable, fun and attentive. This was my first solo trip out of the city and I had a BLAST. With his recommendations and personalized map I was able to see EVERY area of the garden. Its a stunning space. The rides to & fro were smooth and Dale told us tidbits and facts about so many different things we passed. I’m usually super anxious taking road trips but Dale is a safe driver and we were having such good convo there was no room for nerves! 10/10!!!!!

    Our tour of Longwood Gardens with WeVenture was all we had hoped for. Adam, our driver and guide, was the ideal combination of information and restraint. He made suggestions and then let us decide how we wanted to spend our time. We’ll book with WeVenture again, and we’ll ask for Adam.

    Thank you so much! We love to show off the spectacular Longwood Gardens to guests. It's such a pleasurable stroll along endless rows of flowers and trees and it shows us the power of preservation and environmental education.

    Had a glorious tour of Longwood Gardens with James! Totally worth it! The gardens are fantastic but huge and he kept us on track and we got to see everything! He was a great driver and kept us entertained with information about the area on the way to and from Philadelphia. Quite relieved that we did not attempt to rent a car and find our own way there and around the gardens- we would have never managed it so well as he did. Great to have a native show you around. Highly recommend this tour!

    It is a great place and has some nice plantings. We however have traveled to all 50 states and this is not even half the gorgeous places we have seen. I guess it is the big game in town here but try Butchart Gardens in Canada instead. (Victoria) Look at the pictures online.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this trip to Longwood Gardens from downtown Philly. Adam was a wonderful guide who gave us great historical info about Pennsylvania, its history and culture. And he was a safe driver! Even though it is too early for blooming plants, there was plenty to see in the amazing conservatory and the family home. If you are visiting Philly and don’t have a car, this is the ideal way to see Longwood Gardens.

    Thank you Nancy! We are the only tour company that offers a Center City pick up for a join-in tour down to Longwood Gardens. It's very convenient. Plus, you get a local expert guide to answer any questions you have about the historically-rich countryside outside of Philly. And they are indeed safe drivers!!!

    Tom was an amazing tourguide! I ended up being the only one in the tour and they still ran the tour anyway, which was HIGHLY appreciated! Tom was clearly very knowledgeable, not only in history but also in botany as well. He showed me the best bits of Longwood Garden and it was truly a breathtaking place. I would love to come back in autumn just to see the trees turning red. All the exhibitions were amazing and the flowers and plants were well taken care of. I highly recommend this tour!
