This was our first trip to Philly and we thought the Hop On Hop Off bus would be a great way to see the sights. We were very pleased and happy from start to finish. We had several different guides as we did hop off a few times, but each guide was fun and very knowledgeable.

I absolutely loved the tour.. the tour guides were fun, authentic and informative... the driver drove at a pace that allowed great photos and it was easy to get off at stops you loved the most ... I highly recommend this tour to get the best experience of the city

Fun, informative and convenient.

All of the employees were helpful and kind. We liked that we could just get off in the stops that we wanted to and know that 30 minutes later there would be another bus there to pick us up. Great way to see the city! I have always wanted to ride on the top of an open but, so this was a fun choice for us.
