Philadelphia: Double-Decker Sightseeing Bus Tour
- Duration: 1.5 hours
- Optional audio guide
My 11-year-old son and I planned a Sunday 1-day trip to visit several locations starting at 10am - 5pm, and the Go Philadelphia All-Inclusive Pass was very convenient and no hassle. We parked where we were going to finish the day and walked to all locations, except an Uber from Mutter to American Revolution Museum: 1) Philadelphia Art Museum (10-11:30am) - excellent; could have spent 2-3 hours on the 3rd floor alone, but had to move on to get to other attractions; we are not huge fans of art, but the armor, paintings, sculptures, and woodwork kept our interest the entire time 2) East State Penitentiary (11:45-1:15pm) - great; very interesting and spent 1.5 hours there when we only planned for 45 minutes. 3) Mutter Museum (2-3pm) - great; many specimens and so much content considering the smaller size of the building 4) American Revolution Museum (3:15-5pm) - great; walk through history that led up to the Revolution, the different battles, and many details from that time period.
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.
Longwood Gardens was a wonderful experience. Picking up the ticket I got from you was a hassle to claim. Seems they had never heard of you and as I was trying to get my ticket I was beginning to think we weren't going to be able to claim it or.
We rode the full loop twice— the first time was nice, so we decided to get some lunch then get back on to hitch a ride to the museum. The second guide, Sam, was SO knowledgeable and delightful, we stayed in for another full circuit.
A live guide is so much better than a recorded tour. The guide was outstanding, and he spoke so clearly that our visitor from South America understood everything. He and the driver were helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.
