Well what can I say this trip was fantastic. It was a very long day but it was well worth it, I took my 78 year old mother and she also thoroughly enjoyed it. It was timed to perfection. Our guide Ben was so informative and answered any extra questions that were asked of him. I didn't realise how historic Philadelphia was. Also visiting the Rocky steps and being able to run up them was fantastic as I am a Rocky (the film) fan. Visiting the Amish was great too, the only tiny thing that did disappoint me was there wasn't more products being sold that the Amish make. They have a little village that you visit and are able to walk around the shops, I would have thought there would have been Amish people serving in them but there wasn't and most of the goods in the shops had been shipped in. The products that were made by the Amish were delicious. Great tour
booked this trip for parents visiting from out of country. They totally loved it. Felt is was very informative and fun.
it sure beats driving from NYC - no need to find parking or pay tolls bus very comfortable - very informative and the philly cheese steak restaurant was also fabulous - I mean there’s never enough time but you get a great snapShot of Philadelphia - Amish tour a bucket list for me and aTrue lifeTime high light - I could have stayed in Lancaster forever ! Highly recommend
Great guide and fantastic experience We have really enjoyed each and every minute of this trip.Thank you
A long day but well worth it. Philadephia is steeped in American History and including of course the Liberty Bell. One cannot miss the Rocky Steps and I even managed to run up them. Again lots of interesting little shops selling their wares and nice little cafes to have breakfast or lunch. The tour then took us to Lancaster where a lot of Amish live intermingled with other ordinary Americans not that anyone we met we could call ordinary - all lovely people. We had a ride in a buggy and our driver was a well kept 73 year old called Yarn and he had 5 children and 28 grandchildren. Well worth the experience and we finished off with a stop at some Amish Markets which were amazing. If you wish to buy one of their quilts however you had best have deep pockets.
have done this trip twice, because we enjoyed it so much, would definitely do it again,
My family and I booked this tour and it was well worth the money. Jonathan was our tour guide and was very informative. You will walk a lot during the 1st portion of the tour, independence hall,Liberty Bell etc. Very good value for the money if you’re a history buff. Thanks again to Jonathan/Mario!
Outstanding tour and great quides. Lots of information. I highly recommend.
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour and the opportunity to get out of New York for a day into some of the most beautiful, picturesque farming countryside I have ever seen - around the town of Intercourse believe it or not. There were three tour guides on board and Eddie the English tour guide was very good. He gave the history in logical fashion and then gave us breaks from his commentary. Compare that to the tour guides on hop on hop off buses who bombard you with thousands of disjointed facts. Forget the hop on hop off buses - take this tour instead and enjoy Philadelphia and the beautiful countryside where the Amish community we visited live. If you enjoy viewing rural landscapes I highly recommend this tour.
This tour was great we had a very good tour guide would highly recommend this tour. Loved every moment of it
Great tour it's a long day but well worth it our tour guide Yohei was fantastic very informative and entertaining saw all the main sights
Was a fantastic day, got to see lots of history and the city, and really enjoyed the Amish part of the trip - fully recommend.
This was a great and fun tour. I learned a lot about our founding fathers and ate some great food. The amish Country was very pretty and we did a buggy ride and some shopping I was able to find some great gifts. it was a great trip and I hope more people will take it.
What a great day out! Our tour guide Yohei (sorry if I've spelt that wrong!) was excellent. He was incredibly knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. We were so glad we took this tour. Philly was beautiful to see, and the Amish Country was lovely. Highly recommend!!!
It was a good trip but shame it was raining and we couldnt get near Rocky Steps to take photos as it was all closed for a concert
