The Double-Decker Hop-on Hop off Sightseeing tour is a must to see Philadelphia especially if you have only several days in the city. It has a lot of stops to be able to see most of Philadelphia. The tour guides and bus drivers were amazing. We took the 2 day tour and it was worth every penny. Our favorite stops were the Liberty Bell, The Independence Hall and of course the Reading Terminal Market where we sampled several ethnic foods as well as bought goodies and fruits, etc. If I'm craving of authentic ethnic food, I just hop in the plane the go to Philly then take the hop on hop off.

Paid for a one day ticket. With all the sites available, this is easily a two or three day venture. We ended up riding the bus all the way thru the tour twice since we really didn't have much time to "hop on, hop off." The tour guides were knowledgeable and we had a great time!

Overall, it was an enjoyable & educational experience whether as a tourist or a Philadelphia resident. As a Philadelphia resident, and also the reason why I didn't rate "excellent", I was discouraged by negative/insensitive comments made by the tourgide (only able to be identified by his birthdate 9/11, recently turning 59) referencing "Indians", Philadelphia neighborhoods Port Richmond/Kensington and Camden NJ as being places you shouldn't go into, and over emphasizing/encouraging everyone to leave a tip when exiting-to be shared by himself & the driver, and how tips represents 50% of their salaries. Additionally, the tour routes should be maintained routinely by pruning all "low-hanging" tree branches. BEWARE OF DOUBLE-DECKER SEATS ON RIGHT SIDE OF BUSES!!!
