Great tour but unfortunately due to snow and sleet storm, all tours were forced to terminate by 1:15.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and interactive. Philly is beautiful.
Great way to see the city Eastern state penitentiary was the best stop
We enjoyed seeing the city from the top of their double decker bus. We appreciated the information shared by the tour guides. We went on two separate days and learned something new each day. The guides provide their own unique value. It is a good over view when you first arrive.
Our tour guide was amazing - her amusing anecdotes and stories attested to her great depth of knowledge about Philadelphia. Her personal stories were particularly interesting. Our only constructive feedback was that it didn't always run on time, which made things a bit hard when the weather was frigid.
Great value for money and tour guides really good. Great way to see Philadelphia if you have a short stay.
Excellent! The Viator experience is never disappointing. I would recommend Viator to everyone in every city where it is available.
This is the easiest way to get around to the top attractions in the city.
My mom who is 86 and I bought the two-day pass. Every guide we had was phenomenal and we hopped-on and hopped-off many different times. Since my mom has to use a walker or wheelchair most of the time it was a great way for her to see all of Philadelphia and not feel like she'd missed anything. The employees were great about loading her collapsible, manual wheelchair on and off for us. The first day I sat on one side of the tour bus and the second day I sat on the other to get a different perspective. Highly recommend sitting on top if possible for an unobstructed view. The tour the first day gave us an insight on sites we might want to investigate in depth. The only negative I had was trying to figure out where to pick a bus the very first time. Once you get one of their brochures it tells you the cross streets where the bus picks up and you begin to see which bus sign to look for. It's been three weeks now since we took the tour and my mom still raves to everyone we meet about how great the bounce-on, bounce-off tour and guides were!
The entire staff is knowledgeable and friendly. This is a great value for the price. We hopped off to what we wanted up close, then hopped on to see the rest of the city from the comfort of our seats.
The weather was perfect, the commentators were so informative and easy to understand. A great way to show a first time visitor to Philly what an interesting place it is.
This is a great way to start in any city. We took the entire tour then mapped out our visits. All the tour guides were knowledgeable, but by far the best was Z. She was knowledgeable, fun and had great suggestions. She made you feel how wonderful the city can be. definitely the way to go! Highly recommend this tour. If you take this tour, get there for the first bus and make sure you have Z!
Many Hop-Off, Hop-On tours I've taken just have the prerecorded script that you listen to with a headset.
Standing O to Jay who did a superb job today! His small details interested us and he was very knowledgable.
LOVE doing these types of tours. No stress from driving, you can come on and off at your leisure and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to tour a city.
This was hands-down the best one we've done, and we've done many domestically as well as internationally!
Way to go, Jay!
