Beginning at the Bourse Building right across from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, plug into our multi-lingual headphone audio to discover the origins of America, where America’s Founding Fathers declared independence from England. Along the way, enjoy stunning views of such historic landmarks including the Christ Church Burial Grounds, Elfreth’s Alley, the Betsy Ross House, and Independence Hall.

As you head west, see the Friendship Gate in Chinatown, be amazed by the architecture of Philadelphia’s City Hall, and be sure to explore the various museums along Benjamin Franklin Parkway, including the Barnes Foundation – known as the world’s largest collection of post-impressionistic art in the world. As you continue your journey, marvel at Philadelphia’s growing skyline and get a bird’s-eye view from atop the One Liberty Observation Deck. Your loop finishes up after touring through the charming neighborhood of Society Hill and a drive along the banks of the Delaware River.

Tour guide Mike and driver Keisha were amazing. We learned so much Philly history from them. Also, ticket agent Dave at the Reading Terminal, was awesome. He answered lots of questions about Philly.

We were in the city for one day only. This was a wonderful way to see the town and get to customize what you would like to experience in more depth. We hopped off and ate in Chinatown and got back on in the same place to see more of the city. Our tour guide, Earnest, was entertaining and informative. Great experience!

The excellent tour guide and driver. Love the convenience of taking the tour the first time then hopping on and off at the site we were interested in only to take the bus to the next one. Very convenient.

Our tour guide, Katie, was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. We sat up top on the bus and had some great views. The low branches were quite dangerous and distracting however. It seems like it would be a good idea to trim them back.

We had a great time on the tour. It started late b/c a bus driver was sick. But the driver we had was great and Brandon, the guide, was excellent! Very knowledgeable and funny! Highly recommend!

Definitely a must if you want to get to know the city well and fast! I only had one day to go around and the bus was the perfect means to seeing a bit of everything, getting historic facts, and getting to certain interest spots.

I've lived in Philadelphia my whole life and have never taken this tour. My niece was visiting from Scottsdale Arizona and wanted to visit the sites. We had such a wonderful time. Our tour guide Warren was wonderfully entertaining and was very knowledgeable of Philadelphia.
