Philadelphia Sightseeing Tours' four open-top buses pick up and drop off guests at 20 unique landmarks as they circumnavigate the city's most notable spots during each 90-minute circuit. Buses take off from The Bourse, swing past the United States Mint, and pull up at the Betsy Ross House, where the famed seamstress sewed both the first American flag and first flag-print bikini. All in all, buses cruise by 33 attractions—13 of which don't involve stops—as expert guides deliver historical tidbits about American treasures and architectural feats, including the ornate iridescent Friendship Gate in Chinatown and the Norman-style Masonic Temple. Passengers can hop on and off the open-top buses as many times as they like, making the tour a flexible way to see the sights or spice up an otherwise blasé bank-robbery getaway.
Philadelphia Sightseeing Tours
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.
