Took the Philly by Night double decker bus tour for $30 per person starting at 8pm. Great option since it was way too hot to enjoy an open air tour during the day. tour guide Matt was funny and interesting, we saw and learned a lot that we had missed on foot.

With just one full day to see Philly we decided to take the bus. There was a free shuttle from the hotel to the starting point. Unfortunately the shuttle had no ac and inside must have reached at least 105F. The tour stops at all the important sights if someone wants to get on or off. There is a live... More

Lots of stops and helpful staff with local advice on food and sights. Go through everything, the park, historic area, downtown, and the river fronts.

Wonderful tour guides and nice loop of Philly! Numerous stops around town and I like how you could get a 2 day pass. Only $10 online for kid's pass! Go to website and buy. Many deals and City Pass is great if you want to go to those particular places. Much cheaper for a family than taxi's even city buses... More

We were in Philly for an overnight layover. My mother had always wanted to ride atop a double decker bus. We took advantage of the evening tour. There was only one stop that provided time to get off and back on - but this tour was the perfect way to take advantage of a short time with so much to... More

Friends and I decided it might be fun to take a tour of the city at night. At first we were bombarded by these people in red (Philadelphia Sight Seeing Tours) who were almost attacking us to take their tour. Since I don't like pushy sales people (they reminded me of car salesmen with a rushed, rehearsed type spiel), we... More

I've been in the Philly area many times but never had time to tour the downtown. This was nothing short of great. Friendly young lady who served as tour guide. Really got to see the city.

Never having been to Philadelphia before I found this bus tour fun and informative. Our tour guide was amazing – I wish I could remember his name! We saw many things that I never knew existed and the architecture was simply beautiful. There were too many stops to get off at every one but the buses were easy to locate... More
