CiCi the tour guide and Nate the driver were nothing short of amazing!!! CiCi kept us informed and entertained at the same time. She made sure we knew where to get local food . GREAT SERVICE.
It was great!!! We took our 5 kids everyone enjoyed it. They really knew their stuff.
once we had our voucher validated we decided to go round all 27 stops taking in the whole tour. The tour guide whose name we have unfortunately forgotten was very good and informative. We saw all the sights including the famed rocky steps and the rocky statue. After the tour we visited the liberty bell exhibition and independence hall. We returned to the bus and got off in the city to look around and do some shopping. After having a philly cheesesteak in the hard rock café we returned to the station to get the train back to new York where we were staying. I would recommend using the hop-on hop-off bus as its the best way to get about and see the sights.
This was very fun. The guides were very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend it!
Ernest and Benard simply brought Philadelphia to life on a 90 minute open top bus tour. We laughed, smiled, learned and enjoyed getting a great overview of the city, its history, and key attractions. We learned about the Barnes Foundation and ended up going to see about 181 Renoir originals along with many, many other impressionist artists. An awesome life experience we wouldn't have known about unless Ernest pointed it out. Wonderful how he connected with the tourists and made the experience another shared life experience of fun and memories. Thanks E and B!
The tour bus is a must every time my husband and I visit a large city. Not only do we get a comprehensive tour around the neighborhood but we actually get to see what the city has to offer and this helps us to decide what we want to go back to in more detail. The guides were very informative and funny at times. We learned a lot and then could hop on and off as we wished. Great!
Great tour guide! This was a great way to learn about Philadelphia and hear fun stories. I don't think there is a need to ever hop off because then you will miss some good stuff!
This was the 1st time to Philadelphia, so we didn't know all the sites. The ride was very informative and fun. Highly recommended for all!!
Glad I took tour as I only had one day for touring in Philadelphia. Driver was very competent and tour guide was very informative. Would do this again.
It was awesome. We had several guides as we got on and off and they were all exceptional. The only way to see the history of Philadelphia.in one day.
so much fun. I even purchased the wrong day and they had no problem swapping it for me. :
An excellent way to see the historical city. Guides were knowledgeable. The buses ran regularly and the off/on stops were clearly marked
Great thing to do when you first arrive. Gives a wonderful overview and helped us plan what we wanted to spend more time seeing.
Host Tim and driver Tamara did an excellent job. I would recommend the tour.
Best way to get an overview in a restricted time one day. Route of the bus is a good way to learn about Philadelphia.
Only restriction - the guides are really to loud and after an hour it becomes painful to understand them.
Very good tour. Both tour guides were extremely knowledgeable about the history of Philadelphia. The only thing you need to be careful of are the low lying branches as your are passing by
Very knowledgeable, personable tour guide. Great tour for first timers. We saw all the highlights
If sitting in the open air upper deck you had to duck many times to avoid getting smacked in the face by branches. The tour guide did give us a heads up, but it happened a little to often to categorize this better then 3 stars.
We ran into a problem with this as Obama was speaking at the Library in Philly the second day of our 2-day tour package. Would have been nice to know that they would not be going to half of the stops on that day due to the Obama speech, we could have adjusted which things we saw on which days. So do your own homework to make sure of any street closures before doing this tour. That said, the tour itself was pretty cool, friendly and knowledgeable tour guides... Buses are 30 min apart on average but can lead to long waits for next bus at some stops. We experienced a 50 minute wait in one case... plan ahead...
We had high hopes, but found it to be just OK. There was a lag between pick-ups ( more than 30 minutes) and our bus actually broke down. Was left wishing we chose another tour bus company.
We covered a lot of the highlights of Philadelphia during this tour. One thing we felt would have been better is if we could have gone just a bit slower. It seemed to be a whirlwind of things to see. I know we could have gotten off and then back on, but we weren't sure where to spend the most time and where to spend the least time. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining.
