Philadelphia Trolley Works Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus Tour

OK I have lived here 3 years and I still love going on this tour. Depending on which tour guide you get, you learn something new about the city every time. Come out and explore a neighborhood you've never been to and learn more about the history of the city than maybe you knew. Even if you know everything, sit on the top of the bus on a nice day! :):)

Philadelphia Trolley Works

Ever since the first giant pumpkin was carved into a carriage, people have wanted to travel in style. Philadelphia Trolley Works, a subsidiary of 76 Carriage Company, turns fairy tales into reality with a fleet of double-decker buses, motor coaches, horse-driven carriages, and their namesake trolleys. On any given day, the historic streets of Philadelphia pulse with trolley or horse-pulled tours of Independence Hall and the Rocky steps. Cinderella-inspired horse-drawn carriages and Victorian-style trolleys transport bridal parties to weddings, and jumbo-sized motor coaches can be rented for casino trips and cross-country air-guitar tours.

    When/where are we meeting?

      Hi Dave,Trolley Works buses pick up on the corner of 5th and Market - those that need to purchase tickets will need to head into the Independence Center to purchase. The Groupon is still on so I would suggest folks buy online and print their voucher. Let's meet inside the Independence Center and determine who needs to purchase.

      Also, the time for the meetup is 10am :) I estimate gathering and purchasing tickets will take until 1030 and we should be on our way then (hopefully)

    I'd like to do this but it would depend on the date. Mid June might work for me.

    Everyone that said yes, start suggesting dates! I like to go in the cooler months so maybe towards the end of this month or beginning of next month? I love to sit on the top outside :):)
