2-Day Philly Hop-On Hop-Off Pass and Eastern State Penitentiary
Travel between Philadelphia landmarks and attractions without getting lost on an open-top, double-decker bus. With this 2-day pass, hop on and hop off whenever you want and explore the City of Brotherly Love at your own pace. Enjoy 360-degree views of the Old City historic district, Penn’s Landing, Boathouse Row, Fairmount Park, Chinatown, and more. Plus, admission to Eastern State Penitentiary is included.
What to Expect
Start your Philadelphia double-decker bus tour at any of the 27 stops along the route. Grab a seat on the upper deck and enjoy live commentary as you travel past the Old City historic district, Penn’s Landing, Love Park, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Boathouse Row, Reading Terminal Market, and more. Hop on and hop off whenever you want and only stop at the attractions that interest you—skip the rest. The 16-mile (26-kilometer) route takes about 1.5 hours if you don’t disembark.

Your 2-day pass includes admission to Eastern State Penitentiary. Skip the lines at the ticket office and expect to spend about two hours touring the ruins of this historic prison that once held notorious criminals like “Slick Willie” Sutton and “Scarface” Al Capone. Wander through the prison’s abandoned cell blocks and learn about its haunted history. Then hop back on the bus to continue your Philadelphia tour.

The tour ends where you’d like.

Worst Tour I have done

I love hop on/off tours because you get so much information and a flavor for the place you are visiting. What this company fails to tell you is that there is no air conditioning on their buses. Today the heat index was 105 degrees. We...More

Philadelphia tour bus

I rode the tour bus and found the tour guide named Ernest the best. Also I found the driver named Dino was the best at navigating the traffic.
