Start your Philadelphia double-decker bus tour at any of the 27 stops along the route. Grab a seat on the upper deck and enjoy live commentary as you travel past the Old City historic district, Penn’s Landing, Love Park, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Boathouse Row, Reading Terminal Market, and more. Hop on and hop off whenever you want and only stop at the attractions that interest you—skip the rest. The 16-mile (26-kilometer) route takes about 1.5 hours if you don’t disembark.

Your 2-day pass includes admission to Eastern State Penitentiary. Skip the lines at the ticket office and expect to spend about two hours touring the ruins of this historic prison that once held notorious criminals like “Slick Willie” Sutton and “Scarface” Al Capone. Wander through the prison’s abandoned cell blocks and learn about its haunted history. Then hop back on the bus to continue your Philadelphia tour.

The tour ends where you’d like.

Worst Tour I have done

Philadelphia tour bus

I rode the tour bus and found the tour guide named Ernest the best. Also I found the driver named Dino was the best at navigating the traffic.
