Double Decker bus...? Horse Drawn Carriage...? No....Double Decker Bus! Wait....Oh I don't know!
Your biggest decision when arriving in Philadelphia is which fun and unusual mode of transport do you want to travel the city in, as your knowledgable guide tells you entertaining stories and fascinating facts about the cities most famous attractions and sights.
Philly Trolley Works has a number of transport options that will take you round the city that is home to infamous sites in history, such as the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. They also have a number of tour options so you can really find one that suits your whole family.
There are city day tours, regional day tours, and majestic horse drawn carriage tours - all of which will entertain and educate you on the city's history, cultural heritage, and most interesting sites.
There is also the "City Tour" which lets you hop on and hop off at any of the 21 stops along the route, so you can spend as much or as little time at certain landmarks as you want, to really take in the history and culture.
If you don't fancy the transport element, and just want to take your time really enjoying the city, then they have the Franklin Footsteps walking tour, which retraces the footsteps of (now you might have heard of him) Benjamin Franklin during the time that he was founding the nation (that's a pretty big deal!)
They also have speciality tours and combination tours, so you really will be spoilt for choice!
