Overview
This Philadelphia hop-on hop-off bus tour allows you to visit all of the landmarks in the City of Brotherly Love at your own pace. Choose from a 1-, 2-, or 3-day pass, and hop off (and back on) to explore more independently whenever you like. The 27 stops include Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, among other must-sees, and you’ll learn about highlights from onboard guide commentary.
What to Expect
Make your way to the central departure location, the Independence Visitor Center, for your hop-on hop-off bus tour. Alternatively, you can hop on at any of the 27 stops around the city with your voucher for your 1-, 2-, or 3-day pass in hand.

Find a seat in the closed cabin or the open-top level, which offers panoramic views of the passing sights. Listen to the commentary from your onboard guide, which details the long and important history of Philadelphia and its role in the formation of our nation.

Stops include the Liberty Bell, the U.S. Mint, City Hall, the Philadelphia Zoo, and the rocky steps at the Museum of Art. Stay on the bus for the entire loop, or disembark at any stop to explore further on your own.

I didn't really notice when we were on our tour, however I do believe that when I made our reservations that I noticed the buses were wheelchair accessible. It would be best to check their website to be sure.
