Great way to initially see the city. Gives you a quick overview of the city layout, and you can then decide what to actually see. Easy to get on and off. Price averages around $30; however, be sure to ask for a discount. We were able to get tickets for $25 per person which beats the Internet special price.

2 out of my 3 tour guides were fantastic! Both this and the other major bus tour were sitting outside my hotel in Philly. I like the color red, and so I picked this bus and bought a 2 day ticket. By the grace of god, there was nice weather 2 days of excellent weather in November. My hotel was... More

If you want to see all the hot spots in Philadelphia without walking your feet rugged and paying a fortune for cabs, this tour is for you!! My husband and I started the tour on Friday around 1:30. We chose to ride through the entire tour since we had walked quite a bit the previous day. Andrew, our tour guide,... More

This company goes above and beyond to provide customers an experience they will remember long after they leave Philly! The staff was congenial and personable. Take the tour multiple times! The history remains the same but the delivery changes with the guides. Special shout out to George (my driver)! He was great. Thanks to Shelly for ensuring my experience was... More

I did a two day pass for this tour. It was not worth it. The first day was great, I used it to get to the penitentiary and it was a fun way to learn somethings along the way. The second day was a waste of time. The guide asked everyone on the bus where they were from and where... More

It's about a 1.5 hour route that has a guide speaking to everyone about what we are driving by. The guide is funny and informative. There over 20 stops where riders can get on or off if you have a wrist band showing you paid for the day. Stop one is next to the Liberty Bell-just look around you will... More

I really enjoyed these tours. I bought two days, the second day is only $2 more, and highly recommend it. I was able to see the whole city in about 90 minutes and then plan what I wanted to see accordingly. I am from Texas, so the city of Philadelphia is much smaller than I expected. The best guide we...

We were in Philadelphia for one day so decided to take the bus tour to get some history and shown the sights. It was $30 each for a hop on hop off experience with busses running every 30 minutes this time of year. The bus and driver were good, likes sitting on top to really get a good view. The... More
