Used these trolleys for transportation to and from the hotel and the Horticultural Center in July. Air conditioning was key. Everything went very smoothly and the guests enjoyed them. I worked with Tyrone who was wonderful and very helpful.

We brought on Philadelphia Trolley Works for our wedding day to shuttle our bridal party for photos around the city. Overall, the experience was great and met our expectations. The driver was very helpful and flexible when it came to visiting various sites, especially since we made some changes on the spot about where we wanted to go. The trolley was clean and the air conditioning made it very comfortable on the warm day. It's on the pricier side and there is a minimum of 3 hours, but would recommend if you're looking for a trolley in the city.

We hired Philadelphia Trolley Works for our wedding and it was a great addition to our day. The trolley was awesome, fit 20 of us more then comfortably and was so much fun! It made for great pictures and we were able to hire them on somewhat short notice. They were also cheaper then some other trolley companies that I contacted which was a plus however, I cant get over how expensive it is to rent a trolley for such a short amount of time. We had a total of 3 hours for our rental and spent a total of probably 20 minutes actually using it. But either way, Im so glad we did!

Philadelphia Trolley Works provided the wedding shuttle for my guests. It was very easy to book with them, but do book early as in prime wedding season the vehicles go fast. I hired a 36-person shuttle and it was where it needed to be, on time, throughout the wedding day. It was very clean and comfortable. My guests were happy not having to walk, even though it wasn't far between the church, hotel, and reception venue. The person with whom I made the booking was very professional and always answered my questions; he carefully reviewed the day's schedule with me. Also, the pricing was pretty good as well. If you're having a wedding in-and-around Philadelphia, this is the go-to company.

I highly recommend Philadelphia Trolley Works. I priced most trolley companies in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. Philadelphia Trolley Works was very reasonably priced and in my opinion, the best looking trolleys. From the start, the customer service representative I dealt with, Tryone, was fabulous. He answered all of my questions and was very responsive. The Trolley arrived early to pick up both the groom/groomsmen & the bride/bridesmaids! It was a totally smooth experience with no issues or problems (just what a bride needs on her wedding day). We even went a few minutes over our time and weren't charged extra. Highly recommend using Philadelphia Trolley Works for your wedding transportation!

One of the two worst vendors we worked with. I booked one standard trolley for the wedding party. My fiancé called for a price quote on a shuttle for guests and they added it to our booking even though he said he needed time to think. When he went to pay the balance, he noticed it and called to get it removed. They did agree to remove it, but not before they tried to sell him on keeping it - by the way, the shuttle they were offering was a school bus with an ad for Terror Behind the Walls that could not be removed and they were charging the same price as we were paying for a plain yellow school bus from another company. The driver showed up without a gps. Luckily I had back up directions. I was not well the day of my wedding and made it clear I really needed to use the bathroom. I was visibly upset. She pulled up to the church and wouldn't open the door for me. I had to direct her to do it multiple times. On the way to our photo location, the driver got lost and wouldn't admit it/ask for help. Instead she kept going and when we realized that it was taking much longer than we'd expected, we tried to address it with her and offered her a phone gps, but she refused. Then, she pulled over and started talking to some people on the side of the road. We were so late to photos that we missed the entire cocktail hour and then some. On the way back, one of my groomsmen asked her to pull over and instead she started to pull onto the ramp for the turnpike. Everyone started yelling stop and again she initially ignored us. Then she was in the wrong lane to make the turn to the street the venue was on. We told her and she ignored us again, then when she realized her mistake she made an illegal right turn on the Boulevard. I am so disappointed with how this driver behaved and the fact that she came unprepared. She cost me and my husband time with our family and countless pictures with them not to mention the stress of it all.

We had the best trolley driver for our transportation from our church to our venue!! Everyone had a great time and I would recommend the trolley to any bride with a larger bridal party as it was very spacious and we were able to fit some of our family on as well!! We also used a party bus for our out of town guests and though I am unsure of the driver, the people on the bus raved about their ride to church! Everyone had a great time and Philadelphia Trolley Works was amazing!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Philadelphia Trolley Works and they provided a fantastic service. We had both a trolley and a bus scheduled throughout the day at multiple times/locations, and everything arrived ahead of schedule. Our drivers were AMAZING and our guests raved about the 'good times' they had on the trolley/bus!

I also want to mention my Sales Representative, Roe D., who was an absolute joy to work with. She guided me through the entire process and dealt with several curve balls at the last minute. Her guidance and assistance was phenomenal and greatly appreciated.

I highly recommend Philadelphia Trolley Works and am thrilled that they were a part of my wife and I's special day.

My wife and I used use Philly Trolley works for our wedding. We had one white trolley and a large coach bus to shuttle our guests back and forth.

The coach bus was perfect and the diver could not have been better. He backed out of our venue's small gates at 2am in the pitch dark with no problem. He was friendly, courteous and professional. At one point did a head count of my entire wedding to make sure everyone was going to have a seat at the end of the night.

As for the trolley I was a little disappointed. It was dirtier than expected and the driver seemed uninterested in what she was hired for. She wasn't out of the trolley letting people know which wedding she was there for, just kind of dozing off in the driver seat. At one point while heading to the venue she sat frozen at a green light because she couldn't bother looking up from her cell phone.

Otherwise everything was great. Tyrone, our sales rep, was very professional, accommodating and responsive. I'd recommend them, but I don't know if I'd choose a trolley again.

I worked with Tyrone to charter a trolley to transport my bridal party around Center City for pics, and I could not have been more pleased. Tyrone worked with my budget (I.e., I asked for a better price and he gave me one), and worked with me when I wanted to change the pickup and drop off time two days before the wedding. The trolley itself was nicely kept and looks great in pics and the driver, God bless her, was a delight.

Pickup was promp and the trolley made it down alleys I thought were impassable. All around excellent service.

Our wedding a long day, so choosing a trolly here was the best value. They accommodate long days (noon-8pm) with special deals, along with holding large wedding parties. The driver was so nice and went beyond being just a driver. I am very pleased to have picked this form of classy transportation and added a nice touch to the day (and pictures!)

I always loved the idea of having a trolley for my Wedding for a few reasons: For one, I love the look of a Trolley and two they fit a lot more people than a limo. I went back and forth between a party bus also, but I thought the trolley had a more Wedding-like feel. I was very happy with Philadelphia Trolley Works. They were very responsive every time I called- which unfortunately I did a lot with time and location changes! They never seemed annoyed at all the changes, they would make them and email me over a copy of everything we discussed.



The day of the Wedding, not only did they show up on time... they were 30 mins early to ensure we would be on time. The driver, Manuel, was the best. He always made sure to help me in and out of the trolley and made sure I was comfortable. You can tell he was no rookie to Weddings. He was courtesy and very kind. When we arrived at our final stop he helped us unload all the coolers and other belongings (they let you leave things on the trolley in between stops and allow you to drink and celebrate on the Trolley if you want). You get more than just a driver when you book them for transportation.

Overall, I was very pleased with the whole planning process with Trolley Works and they could not be more accommodating the day of the Wedding.

Thank you Roe, for your wonderful service in helping me organize the transportation for our wedding! We got married on Sat 8/25/12 and my husband and I were pleased with the entire outcome. Roe, our sales consultant at Phila Trolly Works, made our reservation process very smooth and easy. They made the planning arrangements work to our needs. We had reserved a large couch bus for 52 guests and the bus they provided was beautiful and very clean. The were flexible to work with our schedule and it went off without a hitch. Although transportation in general is pricey, the prices with Phila trolley works are very reasonable and comparable to all that I have seen and searched for. I am in the event industry myself and all of our clients that I know use this company especially with the Trolleys and everyone I know is always very pleased with them. I highly recommend their services and we definitely recommend them to everyone we know! Thank you! :)

Philly Trolley Works did not let me down. They were so easy to work with and made everything run smoothly on my wedding day. I worked with Ray to arrange everything before the wedding and he was always very professional on the phone. They even called me to ask if I wanted a free upgrade to the wedding trolley, which I did not expect. On my wedding day, our driver called my contact person to let her know they were there and ready to pick us up (they arrived early) and our trolley driver was polite, professional, and took us where we wanted to go (even made an unplanned stop for us when we decided to get some photos somewhere else). I also arranged for shuttles to transport guests to the venue, and everyone arrived on time. Thank you Philly Trolley Works!

They did a great job picking everyone up on time and getting us to the destination. Our driver was so friendly and awesome. She made the ride fun. I strongly recommend them for your trolley ride.

I changed the number of trolleys and schedule about 5 times and they were amazing in accomodating my requests. The trolley driver was extremely nice and supportive to me as a bride on the day of my wedding. All the trolleys I had (we had 3) had AC and were very clean. I called several other vendors but trolley works had the best price and since our wedding was downtown...and they are downtown...it seemed less risky than going with a company that could've hit traffic on the way into philly on memorial day weekend.

Overall, we had a good experience with Philadelphia Trolley Works. Most important: they showed up on time and got us where we needed to be on time. The trolley was in good condition, as described and made for some cute pictures. Our driver was friendly and flexible about moving times around when the party went late.

One major disappointment was the music situation. We were told that we could plug in an ipod or iphone to play music and we made a playlist for the ride. But on the day of, they didn't have the needed adaptor cord. This is something we anticipated they would provide and it was not communicated to us that we would need anything other than our ipod. That's why I can't give 5/5 stars.

We chose trolleys for our wedding transportation – bridal party and guests – to add to the Philadelphia experience. Per my Mom, the company was pleasant to work with – she started calling her contact her "BFF" because of all the calls.

However they did "mess up" a bit on the day of. It didn't end up being hugely catastrophic, but there were some hiccups and we ended up getting some money back.

I think if you have a relatively simple transportation schedule and there are alternatives if something goes wrong (e.g. cabs), they're fine, but we had a very detailed (and fairly simple) schedule drawn up for them and they couldn’t make it work.

My dad rented a party bus to transport guests from hotel to church to venue to hotel. Half of the guests were from out of town. Bus was late - half of the guests missed half of the ceremony. Would not recommend. (Should have known when I started dealing with this company and was told that I was "trying to solve a problem" when I was trying to explain that I wasn't sure how many people/what times for pick-up, etc. Don't expect help planning your transportation from this company.) Gave us somewhat of a refund, but the damage was done.

I was very pleased with Philadelphia Trolley Works. I was so excited that the trolley was air conditioned! I sat right under the vent because I was so hot! haha Anyway, the trolley was very prompt, the driver was courteous and kept to himself (some drivers in general can be annoying), and he was very patient when we wanted to take pictures in front of the trolley. Trolley was clean and in great condition. They were also very flexible and even reduced our price when we reduced our time. I would highly recommend PTW.

We rented a trolley and a mini bus for our wedding transportation. We were very happy with the quality of service the day of our wedding, and both drivers got our bridal party and guests where they needed to be at the right time.
After seeing on the contract a little note about not all trolleys being air conditioned, I called to check on ours and was surprised to find out ours would be open air and no one bothered to tell us- for JULY. Anyway, another air conditioned trolley became magically available, and so this worked out because of our attention to detail. Also, although we only needed the mini bus to make one trip, we were charged for 4 hours of unlimited service. I understand the opportunity cost here, however, PTW made a lot of money off of this and could have passed on a little to us.
Overall, very happy with the service, just spent a lot of time making phone calls leading up to our wedding day.

The Trolley Works made transportation to and from my wedding site very easy. The decor of the trolley gave my wedding that antique touch I was really looking for! Even though our driver was not exactly what I would call "cheerful," he made no complaint about the number of times he drove to and from the hotel and the reception, and he even threw in an extra location for our bridal party photographs before the ceremony.

Working with our contact, Caroline, at The Philadelphia Trolley Works was great. She was very easy to get in touch with, very friendly and accommodating.

A little pricey, but I think worth it.

Ray at Philly Trolley Works was very responsive and even contacted me a week before the wedding to confirm the number of riders on the trolley and to ensure that his driver's directions were correct. He was personable and professional. The driver arrived at my house 45 minutes early (without us paying for overtime) simply to ensure that he did not sit in Friday afternoon traffic. We had a great time on the trolley and it looks so nice in our photos. It was air conditioned and comfortable. Our driver was very courteous as well. I would highly recommend them. Even though it was slightly more expensive than a stretch limo SUV, it was much classier looking.

Trolley provided was clean and nice. However, I wish someone at Philadelphia Trolley Works would have pointed out to me that air conditioning was not included. I realized afterwards when I went back and re-read my contract that it does not guaruntee A/C - however - I wish someone would have said "hey your wedding is in July, do you want to pay extra for A/C?" I would have gladly paid more! It ended up not being a huge deal - even though it was 97 degrees. And the driver even took my bridal party to burger king on the way back because they were starving!

The transportation services provided by Philadelphia Trolley Works were wonderful! We had rented a trolley for our wedding day to transport the bridal party to and from church, to all post-church wedding photos, and to the reception site. The price for renting a trolley for an entire day was extremely reasonable and the driver was great! The bridal party and wedding guests thought the idea of renting a trolley for a Philadelphia wedding was such a great idea and we would highly recommend this vendor!

NEVER use this company- they completely ruined my wedding day.
They charged us for 4 hours and left after 3. Our elderly guests were forced to walk 3 blocks from the hotel to the church because the trolley did not stay for it's allotted time.
The driver was rude when he was taking me and my bridal party around for photos and he took the longest route possible to LOVE Park, City Hall etc and did not listen to our suggestions on how to get to the landmarks.
Above all they were unresponsive when we tried to dispute the extra hour they charged us for. We ended up having to take the issue up with our credit card company.
STAY AWAY!!!
