  • Best way to see the city as it takes you past all the highlights. We do the entire loop and then get off at the points we want to see most. Great view from the top of a bus.

  • Great value for money and tour guides really good. Great way to see Philadelphia if you have a short stay.

  • We bought a 2-day pass for Sunday and Monday. On Sunday we waited an hour for a bus in the middle of the day, then finally called Big Bus to learn that it was a holiday and because of a parade the tour was called off. We were never notified by them or Viator.
    On Monday we waited an hour at stop 18 before it came at 10:30 am. Their brochure says intervals are 20-30 minutes starting at 9:30.
    We had two different buses, each with a different tour guide who spoke in a microphone. Because they both spoke so rapidly and ran their words together, we had trouble understanding them.

  • An argument took place between a young man and the female tour guide. It was quite loud and unpleasant.
    She refused to continue as our guide unless he got off the bus. He did. Otherwise the tour was fine.

  • 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.

  • The staff giving the tour was great, really informed.

  • 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.

  • Amazing
