Great Tour

Loved getting the narrated tour....learned so much. Brennan did a great job and had a wealth of knowledge.

Great trip. Would have been even better if not for the incident with the bus which caused us to have to wait for a new bus.
Great guide
, Jun 2021
It was ninety-five degrees and miserable as far as heat. However, our guide was a trooper and was wittily entertaining. It was a great way to get an overview of the city.
Excellent, very informative tour!

The tour guide was amazing! Gave so much information and was extremely personable! I took a small child, 6 years old, and she found it interesting and entertaining too!

Fun with kids
, Jun 2021
Very glad we took the tour instead of trying to do it ourselves. On top of the bus was awesome. The kids loved when we'd have to duk for the tree branches! I only wish we could have done a tour at night but I would definitely recommend to any tourist looking to see the sights!

Don’t Get off the Bus
, Jun 2021
The first day we rode the red loop around to get our bearings. Sitting on top was like whack a mole with “duck on the right” and “duck on the left” to avoid tree branches. The guide was good. The second day we made the mistake of getting off for the Rocky Steps. We waited 95 minutes for the next bus. No one told us we could have hopped on the brown Big Bus. It was not a good experience!

Would have been a 5 if we could hear the speaker. Also the speaker not heard on the lower lever. Driver was great! Second time around was fantastic on the upper level.
Tour closed earlier than publicised

We booked this tour knowing that we only had limited time in Philadelphia and the advertisement stated that the last tour left at 5:30 pm. We came in on a flight from Austin, Texas on Saturday afternoon and got to the pickup site as quickly as possible, before 5 pm. We waited for the 5:30 tour to arrive, but when the bus arrived the driver informed us that they were ending the final tour of the day at 5:30 pm. We were very disappointed and upset that we had spent money knowing that there was a "no refund" policy and they closed the attraction at least an hour before the publicized time.

Everything was so good. Warren was fantastic. Highly recommend booking a hip on bus tour. So much fun

Awesome Philly Experience!!!

I got to see the beautiful city of Philadelphia in the 2-day sightseeing bus for a very cheap price and enjoyed every bit of it. The hop-on, hop-off setup is the best as you may get off at any of the stops without missing anything on the tour. Best sight without a doubt the Rocky statue. Tour guides were fantastic and very educated!!!
