It was my 3rd time using CityPass! I definitely recognize the value of having it especially while on family trips! This Pass gives really great opportunity to plan and use all coupons especially on a multi-day trips. All 3 Passes( NYC, Boston, Philadelphia) had a good variety of attractions.
Got us to do more things than we normally would do!

I found CityPass while looking for coupons or discounts to use at Adventure Aquarium, a place we have been wanting to visit. I debated whether to buy it as yes, you would save money when you add up all the attractions, but would we generally go to these attractions otherwise? Plus we were only going to be in Philly for 3 days and 2 nights, I wasn't sure if we would end up rushing to do everything but since the Franklin Institute sounded fun, I got the passes for me, my husband and 10 year old daughter. Just those 2 admissions equal the cost of CityPass so I had nothing to lose. I'm glad we did! The Franklin Institute was my daughter's favorite attraction, the Big Bus tour was a favorite of my husbands and the aquarium was mine! And it was fun to see daytime and nighttime views of Philly at the Observatory Deck. We took the Big Bus up to the Franklin Institute intending on getting back on after visiting there but spent more time there than originally anticipated so I can't review on the hop on/hop off function. Overall, a great value and glad I purchased!

This was absolutely the best thing ever. We had planned out for our trip to do so much stuff, but were worried about the price of admission to everything. Then we found the pamphlet and were super stoked to see how much money we could save with the CityPass. Best ever, highly recommended
Great Price, Great Destinations, Poor Bus experience

I would've much rather done this in summer, because it was brutal waiting at the stops. My mom and son waited for 1.5 hours and Big Bus never came. Weekend came so my son and I tried it- realized the trolley was a substitute for the bus, which was not clear, and we ended up waiting at a stop for 1.5 hours in the freezing cold.
Other than the Big Bus ticket, I was glad my mom found this City Pass deal- and Philadelphia is wonderful! So much to see and do- love the history.

The kids absolutely loved the Franklin Institute and didn't want to leave. We stayed until it closed. The trolley was very informative but left us stranded at the end of the night even though we were outside waiting 5 mins prior to the scheduled time. We had to wait 45 mins out in the cold with rats running by our feet for a van to come pick us up. Otherwise, we had a great time.
All was good

Great Value for a Great Town

Philadelphia is stocked full of historic landmarks and sights to see, so many that it can become troublesome to find the time and money to see them all. CityPass can help! Utilize the Big Bus company to move around town, hitting and learning about the major landmarks on your way. You can save mountains of cash by buying admission to all the major places through the CityPass.

I had a great experience using city pass. The Trolly tour provided a great overview of places to see. The Trolly staff were very knowledgeable with history of the area. I had a great trip thanks to City Pass.

Great value and I love have you have nine days to use it. Its impossible to finish viewing all the attractions in one day. You can also use the city pass in other popular attractions for a couple dollars off the admission price! Super handy

I really like that it includes the hop on hop off bus which allows you to get a general idea of the city in a faster way.
