We purchased the 2 day ticket and did actually use it 2 days. They picked us up at our hotel and their shuttle service was great. The problem was that on Saturday it was very busy. We got off at the Eastern State Penitentiary and were able to get back on easily. When we got off at the next stop... More

It was a short , informative and most of all fun tour of the city. I recommend to those who need a quick highlight of Philly.

Definitely take this tour when you are first in the city. It's a great way to see the neighborhoods, restaurants, places you will want to go back and visit. I do recommend sitting on top. We stayed inside at first because it was so searingly sunny. Upstairs was breezier and we could see so much more. Unlike the NYC tour... More

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
