More than we expected. Online order of tickets was very easy, upon arrival printing of tickets was immediate, bus was very clean, commentary was clear, very fun and informative. Only disappointment was missing Betsy Ross house due to water main break.

My husband and I booked to tour to see where everything to see in Philadelphia is. We were lucky that on February 18 the temperature was in the high 50’s. We saw and learned about the city from the very entertaining guide and were able to narrow which sites we wanted to visit.

The commentator was very knowledgeable and helpful. We only stayed on the tour for one loop round then got off and worked to the area we wanted to see. Had we been in Philadelphia for longer then probably have done more.

They pick up from hotels... the big bus tours. One day is enough. We found out that there was another city run service Phlash for 5 bucks that almost gives you similar tour through Philly. If you didn’t like waking, Phlash is the way to go.
