Open top sightseeing in Philadelphia

Board an open-top double-decker bus at the main departure location, the Independence Visitor Center, or at any of the 27 stops. Enjoy the view with live commentary from a guide who knows the city inside and out. Learn about the history of Philadelphia, a city that forged a nation, as the bus rolls from one location to the next.

Visit popular sites like the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross House, the United States Mint, the Constitution Center, City Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s famed “Rocky Steps” — plus America’s first zoo, the Philadelphia Zoo — to name just a few. Or explore Chinatown, the Independence Seaport Museum or Antique Row. The entire loop takes 1.5 hours to complete and also features stops at a number of popular dining, shopping and entertainment venues. (Don’t forget to try a Philadelphia cheesesteak and a soft pretzel along the way.)

can not praise this tour enough! we had a blast. Our tour guide was Jay - he was so knowledgable of the city and so much fun!! A fantastic way to see Philadelphia. We took in the whole 90 minute tour and then got back on the bus and off at the stops we decided we wanted to visit. Easy parking and access. We are definitely going to do it again to see some of the places we missed. You really need 2-3 days to see everything on the 27 stop tour. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the city! Enjoy!
