What people are saying about Liberty Bell

Born & raised in Philadelphia, I learned a some new things from our tour guide, William. We plan to return and take advantage of the hop on/hop off feature, rather than just the 1.5 hour loop. It was a spectacular day, made all that much better with William's wit and knowledge. Special thanks too, to Wanda, our bus driver who drove through the city smooth as silk (which is nearly impossible in a car, so it was especially amazing on the bus).

Walked around on day 1, day 2 got the hop on bus excellent commentary from the guide who was such a laugh also would have missed a few sites worth seeing on foot. Please be aware of the hustlers wanting to take your photo at some of the sites they take the photo for you then want paid.

This is the way to get a good overview of the city. The guide was informative and entertaining. We rode the entire tour and on the second go around, stopped where we wanted. The buses were running about every fifteen minutes, so very little waiting. All in all a good experience.

Very impressed with the busses, the tour guides and the amount of drop off/pick up spots. Well worth the money.

Great time and tour guide. Learned a lot about Philly in a fun way.
