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. Hop off at any of the attractions for a closer look, then hop back on when it’s convenient.

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.)

We had purchased a a 3-day pass. The bus service was convenient and on time.
The guide/narrators were well versed. For us, it proved to be the best transportation
choice for our 3 days in Philly.

Fantastic stories by Isaac and it is incredible that the bus goes down those super narrow streets. We used the stop At South Street to eat breakfast, then used another bus to stop at the River-port Museum and take the ferry to New Jersey. Big Bus is an absolutely fabulous trip, don't miss it.

This was one of the best ways to tour the city. We did not have to worry about parking. We could stay as long or as little as we wanted. The wait to hop on a bus was small. The tour guides on the bus were knowledgable and very helpful. I love this way to tour the city! Thank you to the people who put this on!

Do yourself and your family a favor and purchase this City Tour. Great service, clean busses and knowledgeable Tour Guides at a decent price. We purchased a two day pass. First time we rode the entire route just to get to know the city and penciled in our preferred stops. After that hopped on and off all day without any trouble!!!

Great tour trip,!!!! not so fast and not so slow, easy to find meeting place,: staff at meeting desk were helpful and polite.. Our driver is friendly and our tour guide, knows the city like a breeze , made us laugh at times and encouraged us to ask questions/guidance if we need to, like where to hop off for interesting points, places to eat, shop and places worth putting more time, and of course... where to try
the very famous Philly's Best Cheeseteak we went and were not disappointed... Awesome experience and very commendable... Will go on this tour now every time I have family and guests who wish to visit Philadelphia... IN short, well worth the time and the money...Thanks Viatour and all your professional staff...
