  • Awesome

  • great tour

  • Good trip

  • 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,

  • Our tour guide was outstanding in his knowledge and humour and without him the tour would be rated lower. Lots of bus travel and the history in Philadelphia was interesting but the 'Amish' component I found contrived. A visit to a shopping mall was not what I expected as an Amish experience.

  • An excellent tour well led by Jonathon. Left right on time but a couple of things. The tour leaves from Grey Line 8th Ave. Not Grand Central which the advertisement says. The booking confirmation has it correct so just be sure to check it.There is a fair bit of standing and walking at Philadelphia flat terrain thats not mentioned. The Amish experience is a little disappointing in terms of content but does provide an inside real experience. The bus wifi was excellent.

  • Loved this tour, everything was amazing, loved each stop and especially Intercourse, would of loved spending more time at Intercourse and would of loved more on the Amish. Our driver was great, unfortu8natly not so much the tour guide, unfortunately he spoke to the group from inside a circle so who were behind him was unable to hear a single word, there was a Spanish translator who was there for only the Spanish people of about 6 people, 3 couples, and catered to only them, so when we were asked to give gratuity for all three and how much they were asking for from each one I did not like that one bit so gave them still a good amount but less than what they asked for. Would recommend this tour and would love to do same, loved every where we went....

  • 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.
