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.

Visited Philly with firends from Florida. I went to Temple and live about 2 hours away. WE come to Philly 2-3 times a year. First time on the Big Bus, found out things that I didn't know. Very much worth it. One improvement would be for the company to use a QR code for mobile tickets.

A perfect activity for first day in Philly

We esp enjoyed Robin and Sebastion - we were sleep-deprived upon arriving to the city early, and this was the perfect activity to do all day before being able to check into our AirBnb. Learned a lot about the city and enjoyed the Hard Rock Cafe (first time to one) as well as Harbor Park (great place to take a nap).
