Philadelphia: Double-Decker Sightseeing Bus Tour
- Duration: 1.5 hours
- Optional audio guide
I purchased the two day pass and used every minute of each day. As an extra, I heard two different guides and learned different things. One day, I took it out to the zoo (which was fabulous) and since it was during a slow time, the guide suggested texting him when I was ready to return. He was most helpful and conscientious.
We rode the full loop twice— the first time was nice, so we decided to get some lunch then get back on to hitch a ride to the museum. The second guide, Sam, was SO knowledgeable and delightful, we stayed in for another full circuit.
Learned that it is important to look ahead at what may be going on in Philadelphia. Since there was a parade on the JFK blvd it impacted the route of the bus thereby missing many of the stops that are normally along the route.
A live guide is so much better than a recorded tour. The guide was outstanding, and he spoke so clearly that our visitor from South America understood everything. He and the driver were helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.
I wish we had more time to tell the driver we were getting off. At some stops, the bus was back going again before we could say what we wanted. Otherwise, it was a very thorough and enjoyable tour.
