We rode on this trolley but it was part of a Disney Adventure with a tour guide, so I'm not sure how this works if you are not on a tour.

if your short for time this is the way to go - My only regret is that the last bus leaves at 5:00 pm which is early in the summer when there is at least 2 more hours of daylight.

Hello 389kellis, Thank you for choosing Philadelphia Trolley Works & Big Bus. I am pleased you enjoyed the tour. It is an easy, convenient way to see the sites and attractions with limited time in your schedule. Almost all of the attractions close at 5 pm, so the last tour, leaving at 5, makes it way around the tour route, returning to the final stop at 630 pm. On Saturdays, the last tour leaves at 5:30 pm. We do offer a night tour at 8 pm, our Philly By Night tour, runs nightly, May through October.
