Philadelphia CityPASS
Great deal and great places to see!
CityPASS is a very convenient cost effective way to see some of the great sites of the great city of Philadelphia!!
Money saver and a good guidance on fun places
I view CityPASS as a good source to find out fun places at destination city. Philadelphia CityPASS definitely helped me with that.
Amazing Experience
I found out about the CityPASS on my 1st day in Philly and I’m so glad I did because I did not have anything planned. It was inexpensive and perfect. Loved everything about it. I was able to visit 3 attractions without any hassle. I can’t wait to use this again when I travel with my kids.
This is the way to go!
We are new to the Philadelphia area and we were anxious to get out and explore some of the sites with our three kids. We came across the CityPASS and decided to take our last two weeks of summer and dedicate it to exploring. This was truly the way to do it! We used every pass and got our money's worth.
Great Purchase
I bought the city pass during my recent trip to Philly and it made getting into several sights that required timed tickets so easy. It was definitely a great purchase and well worth the price!
