Overview
This Philadelphia hop-on hop-off bus tour allows you to visit all of the landmarks in the City of Brotherly Love at your own pace. Choose from a 1-, 2-, or 3-day pass, and hop off (and back on) to explore more independently whenever you like. The stops include Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, among other must-sees, and you learn about highlights from onboard guide commentary.
Highlights
  • Learn Philadelphia's history from onboard guide commentary
  • Flexible 1-, 2-, or 3-day ticket options to fit your schedule and budget
  • Included map of the routes to help you explore further and find the stops
  • Complimentary shuttle between many Center City hotels and departure points
What to Expect
Make your way to the central departure location, the Independence Visitor Center, for your hop-on hop-off bus tour. Alternatively, you can hop on at any of the stops around the city with your voucher for your 1-, 2-, or 3-day pass in hand. Find a seat in the closed cabin or the open-top level, which offers panoramic views of the passing sights. Listen to the commentary from your onboard guide, which details the long and important history of Philadelphia and its role in the formation of our nation. Stops include the Liberty Bell, the U.S. Mint, City Hall, the Philadelphia Zoo, and the rocky steps at the Museum of Art. Stay on the bus for the entire loop, or disembark at any stop to explore further on your own.

Our tickets were scheduled for a Tuesday but, due to Covid-19, the buses were only running Thursday-Sunday. With our flight leaving on Thursday, we were unable to enjoy the tour.

Because of COVID19, you will not be allowed to "hop on/off." You ride on the bus for the 90 min city tour. The tours run every hour and it's first come first serve. They are only allowing passengers on the upper deck (lower level closed) and the capacity is 30. Once the first
