Very enjoyable way to Sightsee! I would book with this service again.

Mica, our booking agent was extremely helpful in helping me to coordinate me meeting up wit my children and grandchildren from out of state. She provided parking information and walking distance to the first stop. This made my hysband and myself confident that everyone 6 Adults, 4 Children had a central meet up location. At the podium to get our paper tickets I informed City Sightseeing that we had made a change to our reservation and were 1 Adult and 1 Child short. She noted that on those 2 printed tickets that were not used. Outr tour guide spoke clearly and was knowledgeable and entertaining. We rode on the oprn top of the bus and everyone had a fun time. We got off at The Harbor Park and toured The Museum. I would recommend this way to sight see!

I waited for over an hour In Philadelphia Pa at stop #8 & while I put my hand up in the air for the sightseeing bus to stop & pick me & my wife up for her birthday which was on 8/10/22. The first bus rode past as I held my hand up for them to stop & the driver from what I could see was a female driver gestured something with her hand and kept going. At first I did not know if it was the correct bus until I looked up at the number eight spot and realized that it was. My wife who was sitting on the benches the whole time waiting on the bus to pull up asked me if everything was OK which I did not understand why the bus had rode by and not picked us up, I waited another 15 minutes and saw another bus approaching I again stood up tall held my hand up for them to stop it stop number eight and that bus also kept going so then I became very upset. I then called into the main company where I booked my tickets which is the company that I am writing this information now, the lady told me to wait a few more minutes that a bus would be pulling up that few minutes turned in to almost or more than an hour wait I called the lady back and I told her that a third bus pass us bye and that I would be asking for a full refund and also contacting my attorney which I still will be doing and they will get in touch with this company for false advertisement. My name is Stevie Pugh you can check all documentation my paperwork and information was paid for and I still haven’t received a refund for the bad experience that I’ve had with this company so again my attorney will be contacting you my phone number is 484-680-1242. It was her birthday and I felt very disrespected by those buses that just rode past us & did not stop so I will be Pursuing a case against this company for negligence if you would like to speak with me please contact me at the number above or you can email me at StevieSteveDj@yahoo.com.

We loved to opportunity to see a wide range of Philadelphia and learn interesting facts and stories. The chance to get off and experience the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall was great. We then got back on and learned so much more. This was so fun, your bus drivers are incredible, Pine street is so narrow. Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging.

Oversold for holiday
Kristin_D
, Jul 2022
Very informative, though they oversold tickets for Fourth of July weekend. We had to sit separately on the tour and we never did find space to get back on another bus as a group. So we ended up only doing the tour and then not using it again. I think they should’ve capped the tickets they sold on a holiday weekend instead of warning us that if we get off the bus we won’t be able to get back on because there won’t be space. They seem to be aware of the issue, so in that case… Why sell so many tickets?

We did the whole tour all the way through which took 90 min. Then we went around again stopping at the places we wanted to see. Super convenient. I felt bad that I didn’t have much for a tip and they only could take cash tips so make sure you have some as they do a good job.

Great tour guide

Bruce was very knowledgeable, and animated in his guided tour of the city. I also think that he should be commended for his ability to work under pressure, he had to stand the entire time, dodging branches and struggling to hold himself up on a moving bus. At times being tossed around a bit. But he still managed to keep the focus on the city

Alright, but would not do again
Kayla_G

I would recommend this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable on the history of Philadelphia. The only downside was there are not enough buses operating at one time so you have to wait over an hour for another bus if you decide to hop off and sight see.

City Sightseeing Philadelphia

I got my tickets for Wednesday March 2nd, and I even call to confirm where the Tour would start, however , once I got to the place referred, just then the Tour Operator told me that they do not tour on Wednesday!!!! Since I was with my family and we did not wanted to miss the City Sightseeing of Philadelphia, we decided to take the tour the next day without complaints. Next day, the tour guide was so obnoxious, we could not really enjoy the tour , and on top of that, the bus did not make the stops that it was supposed to … the headset did not work either… horrible service !

We waited over 90 minutes for a tour bus. The person answering the phones did not know that buses were being rerouted and told us to just wait! When we finally went to the home station where buses wait to take off, we were told they were being rerouted! What a waste of a morning!
