Big Bus Tours Philadelphia
Details

The Big Bus Company first started operating in London, England in June 1991 with four buses by the Maybury family. It later expanded to enter cities and so on.

In May 2007, the Abu Dhabi company the Al Fahim Group purchased a 30% shareholding. Big Bus Tours was formed in May 2011 when The Big Bus Company of London merged with the Les Cars Rouges Company of Paris.

Buses travel near major landmarks around the town or city it tours. Pre-recorded or live commentary about the landscape is provided through small headphones worn by each passenger. Users may leave the bus and board again without limit (hop-on, hop-off) at special bus stops on a circular route. In large cities, buses go on more than one route. In some cities (such as Hong Kong) some variants of the ride include travelling by boat.

Big Bus Tours - Philadelphia Reviews

We only had a day in Philly so we took the bus tour and had a great time. We were able to see all the main spots philly had to offer and had the option to come off or on at locations, which we did for the rocky statue (of all things). Very nice. We were able to do the bus in half the day and spent the rest at liberty bell area. Thanks to our tour guides who educated us in all things philly. Including where will smith was born and raised.

Affordable, comfortable and convenient. Double decker buses with open top floor. Stops at 27 local attractions. Live naration. Great information and local insights. Hop on and hop off wherever you want. We had a great time.

I'm a big fan of tour buses in any city. The Big B Tours were not the best I've ever been on but its a great way to see the whole city in 1.5 hrs. We decided to get off and get on at various stops so we really ended up doing the entire trip twice and got to hear different tour guides which is a bonus as they all have their own favourite things to talk about. All of the tour guides we had were very friendly and chatty and fun, but also different age ranges, so it was nice to hear about the city from different personalities and age groups. Also got to see the everything we wanted to see in the city and more. Well worth it. Lots of room on the bus, the cover was great so when it rained lightly it did not disrupt the tour. The bus travels all over the city so you really get to see a lot. Buses come every 25-30 mins so if you choose to get off to see something, you won't miss out or have to wait long. Some of the stops were places where we wouldn't even think of coming to see, so it was great to have the tour guides explain the importance of certain areas and it was great for the bus to actually go to these areas. Although the round trip is 1.5 hrs, plan for at least 3-4 hrs to really enjoy the town and stop at certain stops like liberty bell or Art museum. Highly recommend it.

I purchased the Big Bus Tour passes through Groupon and got them for $28/each. Once you arrive you will have to show the person working the desk to redeem them for actual tickets. The girl working the front desk was the rudest person I encountered in Philadelphia. However, the tour guide was the NICEST. She did an amazing job making everyone laugh while still being informative. We rode on the upper deck and even though it was only about 50 degrees, the covered top kept us warm. Everyone is able to get on and off the bus at any stop, but I recommend the Reading Terminal Market and Rocky Statue stops for sure. The only tricky part is getting back on the bus. You have to know when the bus will be coming back, where it stops exactly and have your ticket handy. The ticket also gets you $2 off the Eastern State Penitentiary tour!

We had a great experience with The Big Bus Company...well kinda. To be honest our first tour guide was just okay (that’s PC for...he sucked) and it was lunch time so we hopped off at Reading Terminal Market. Great market, btw. If redemption had a name, it would, without a doubt, be named Jay!!! Jay was awesome. He knew and remembered where everyone on that bus was from (it was about 13 of us) and found a way to involve us all, not just a couple of folks who lived near his hometown like the first guy. That’s not the only thing that made Jay great though. He REALLY knew his stuff. To the point that we didn’t even hop off again because we didn’t want to miss the rest of HIS tour. If some of us knew facts about things or proposed a question, he always had an answer. It wasn’t that he was withholding info, it was just that he was filled with so much, it wasn’t enough time to get it all out. If you have a free day or at least a free few hours, I recommend this tour. Hopefully you will be lucky enough to get Jay!

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13?

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify you via email within 1 business day that said breech has been found.

This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act
