For two straight days, guests sit comfortably inside or on the open roof of a double-decker bus. Guests are welcome to stay on board or climb down to explore any of 21 stops which include America’s first zoo, the shops of South Street, or the steps that Sylvester Stallone climbed to view a copper statue that looked eerily like his brother. Tours depart daily from the northeast corner of 5th and Market Street.

For a 75-minute trip through Philadelphia’s historic past, guests set off on foot to follow the pathways of Ben Franklin and his championed designer Chihuahua on a trip to Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and the meeting place of the Continental Congress. The walk’s newest attraction, the National Constitution Center, examines the syntax of the U.S. Constitution. Tours depart from the sightseeing tour kiosk at the Independence Visitor Center.<p>

Philadelphia Trolley Works

Ever since the first giant pumpkin was carved into a carriage, people have wanted to travel in style. Philadelphia Trolley Works, a subsidiary of 76 Carriage Company, turns fairy tales into reality with a fleet of double-decker buses, motor coaches, horse-driven carriages, and their namesake trolleys. On any given day, the historic streets of Philadelphia pulse with trolley or horse-pulled tours of Independence Hall and the Rocky steps. Cinderella-inspired horse-drawn carriages and Victorian-style trolleys transport bridal parties to weddings, and jumbo-sized motor coaches can be rented for casino trips and cross-country air-guitar tours.
