The founders of Philadelphia Sightseeing Tours have dedicated more than a quarter of a century to local tourism. They bring that expertise to hop-on hop-off bus and trolley tours of the city, which allow guests to design their own itineraries. Sightseers board a London-style double-decker bus or old-fashioned trolley at the Bourse building and journey to more than 20 historical sites, including Love Park and the steps Rocky punched in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Passengers can disembark and explore the Eastern State Penitentiary or pose by the Liberty Bell for as long as they like before boarding the next bus or trolley. Tickets grant unlimited access to the vehicles for one day, letting discoveries last until the sun goes down or Ben Franklin’s ghost starts his night shift at the tollbooth.
