We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Philadelphia. The guide was excellent.
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.
This was a fabulous way to get an overview of Philly! The tour guide was interesting and informative!
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...

Superb!!! The guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We learned so much about Philadelphia that we know we will definitely return.
HIGHLY recommend the Hop On Hop off tour. You can stop at one of many many locations. To see the city, that was a great pick. The person on the mic will give you great city information and explain each area of the city. If/when I go back to Philly, I will take this tour again for sure. Well worth the money if you are there for a day or two. or more.
Tour was very informative and well run. The tour guide a live person, not a recording was very knowledgeable and was very careful to tell us to watch out for low hanging branches!
For people who are new to the place and would want a well guided tour, this is the best option. Period.
It is a 90 min trip around the Center City and we sat through multiple trips until we felt that we could remember all of them long enough. What we noticed is the person in each bus gives a different account of each place, so better shift the bus for every new trip so that you could know more about each place. And the buses come in intervals of 20 minutes so we had ample time to explore the place and as we already know the next bus would come, we were able to pace it the way we like. So overall I highly recommend this. Cheers to Ginger for her delightful account of the places. She should try for narration of children's stories as her voice is very captivating :..
Z was the most amazing guide. Great suggestions of things to do and places to eat. A great asset for the company.
Excellent guides. We rode and hopped on and off for parts of 2 days and enjoyed our first visit to Philly.
Get way to see the city and all the good sites. Easy on your legs, and guide was very knowledgable. Bring a hat if on top deck and it is sunny.
We had a wonderful time. It was a great way to introduce my family to all the great attractions in Philadelphia.
A great outing, but is rained on us and we were soaked. Just made memories and tales to tell. The guide was super. Wish we had made our reservations at the big bus rather than by internet. Did not get all the information about the upgrades. Loved the Hop-On-Hop_off Tour
We rode the bus multiple times. Each guide presents the information from their own perspective. We loved it.
The tour was great and the guides were very knowledgeable about the city and told great stories. It really helped us to set our bearings.
