My granddaughter brought 8 college friends home from Kentucky to visit Philly. I booked them on the Hop-On-Off City Tour. They thought the experience was wonderful. They stayed on the bus and took the whole tour only getting off at the Rocky Steps. They said the information given by the tour guide was really interesting. They learned allot about the city and loved hearing thing about Ben Franklin that they didn't know. It was a great way to see parts of the city that their legs would not have taken them in the time frame covered by the tour, nor would they have learned so much about our city. The Kentucky Girls were really impressed and are still talking about the experience days later.
REALLY DONT HAVE NOTHING BAD TO SAY AT ALL. IT WAS AMAZING.. HAD A VERY GREAT TIME.. WE WILL DO IT AGAIN
Very nice equipment, busses ran right on schedule...ALL of our guides were VERY friendly, courteous, helpful and knowledgeable! Their route banter added to the overall experience and we greatly enjoyed both days!
This is a great way to see all the major tourist spots in the city museums, historical spots, etc.. The guides are entertaining and they're nice too. One of the guides went around wiping off people's seats when it started to rain.
We had a short time to visit Philadelphia, so the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour was the best way to see a lot of things in short time. Our hostess was extremely knowledgable in the history of Philly and narrated our entire ride. I recommend using this tour if you are not well acquainted with the city, and if you want to save yourself a lot of walking!
This tour was awesome! The guide was very knowledgeable and the pick up locations were very convenient.
Awesome. Z and Giles were the absolute best. The tour stayed on time right to the minute, all the stops were great, the narrative from Z was fabulous. Well worth it.
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 :..
