Departing New York City, you'll drive through New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. It's the second largest city on the East Coast, and only 100 miles (160 kilometers) from New York City.
Upon arrival in Philadelphia, you will embark on a panoramic tour that includes Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Elsert Alley (the oldest inhabited street in America) and more. Arriving in the historic heart of Philadelphia, you'll visit the famous Liberty Bell and Constitution Square and Hall, symbols of freedom in America.
Departing Philadelphia you will see the famous "Rocky Steps" before continuing to Lancaster County. After a break for lunch at the Amish marketplace (lunch not included), you'll have an authentic Amish buggy ride through Amish farm country. During the ride you'll learn how the Amish live without modern technology - no electricity, running water, telephone service or appliances.
In the late afternoon your tour heads east for an evening arrival in New York.

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
An interesting walk round Philadelphia in the morning seeing the Liberty Bell, old part of town and The Rocky steps area. Stopped after a few hours walking for an early lunch break in a disappointing mall where most of the eateries had closed down. Then a drive over thLancashire County to the Amish region. Very picturesque scenery on the trip. Had a buggy ride for 30 minutes. We were up front with the Amish man and had a really good view. Onto a Amish Shopping outlet for an hour and 40 minutes for tea and shopping. Very good and excellent ice cream, a must to try. The only downside to the trip was we speak English and half of the coach was Spanish speaking and the tour guide seemed to speak to them a lot more than in English. Otherwise a very enjoyable trip which we would recommend.
