The Philadelphia Tourist Bus is a fun and practical way to explore the birthplace of the United States of America. You can hop on and hop off at any of the stops to discover the city up close at your leisure.
Route and stops
The Big Bus route around Philadelphia lasts around 90 minutes in total and has 25 stops around the city. Explore the main places of interest of the World Heritage City in comfort on board your double-decker open-top bus, and learn all about the legendary history of the place where the Declaration of Independence was signed. You'll be provided with headphones to listen to recorded audio commentary about the sights that you pass on your journey.
Some of our favourite stops on the route are at the Independence Visitor Centre, next to which you can visit Independence Hall and see the iconic Liberty Bell; the National Constitution Centre, which houses an interactive museum; the architectural gem that is City Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
