The best way to start a sight seeing tour of Philly is to take this bus and see the sights and flavor of the area. Very informative and relaxing. The bus picks you up every 20 minutes or so you will not have to wait long after you visit different sights you have selected. If you do not get off the bus you will be on it for about an hour and a half. This is a must do in the Philly area

Thank Greg P

Hello Greg P

Thank you for choosing Philadelphia Trolley Works & Big Bus, and for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed your tour experience, and found it "informative & relaxing." Riding the double decker is really the best way to see the sites of our historic city of Philadelphia, and I am happy you were able to use the hop on/hop off option to enhance your visit.
