Not much to see, but ok for first timer to the city
The weather in Philadelphia was terrible the day of my tour, so I hopped on and stayed on, but I feel the tour was well worth the $26 i paid. Since there were so few people on the tour that day, and there were long stretches where I was the only person on board, I had almost a " private tour". My tour guide was very knowledgable and quite humorous and I learned a lot about Philadelphia without ever getting off of the bus. He also made sure I got a shuttle back to the Marriott - much appreciated as the weather was so bad. I must also mention the kind lady who assisted me in getting on the tour bus at the Marriott stop. She offered me shelter in the stationary bus, and gave me a lot of information and pointers about Philadelphia. Her enthusiasm about Philadelphia and the tour got the trip off to a great start. You are lucky to have such wonderful staff!
The tour covered a LOT of ground, and I think when I have the chance to return to Philadelphia I will book the 2 day tour as the bus stops at 3 museums and the penitentury, which would take a big chuck of time to tour.
Allows you to see more wonderful sights which probably would be oberlooked without the pass
Tour covered a lot of interesting points but visability in the tour bus was limited and it was too cool to be out on top. Tour guide spoke so fast, it was difficult to follow
An excellent pass! It was great because I had 9 days to use it.

Doing what: Philadelphia CityPass
The pass gets in and out of the most important spots, and helps the wallet for souvenirs, later.
This is a great way to do multiple things in a city when you have limited time. The trolley tour was the highlight as you can get on and off at different locations. This pass is the best bang for your buck.
I felt the City Pass was well worth it's price. No waiting in longs lines and worrying about cash etc. Definitely would do again!
