  • Favourite trip of my holidays . Would highly recommmend .

  • This tour covers some of the important sites in Philadelphia relating to the US's political history. Hence, it is good for those who are particularly interested in the US' political history. However, it does have a little something for movie buffs too. If you are a fan of Rocky, you will enjoy the visit from outside to the Museum of Art. Amish country farms are very beautiful. However, the part I was looking forward to the most - riding in a traditional buggy - turned out to be the worst. The buggy driver insisted on seating 16 even if they are all XXXL-sized! This was so unpleasant and frustrating for me. And am sure it was hard on the 2 horses pulling the buggy. I hadn't taken a 12-hour flight for this! Yet, he was eagerly expecting a tip. I didn't give any. For the whole day, we were accompanied by two tour guides one for English and Japanese speaking tourists and the other for Spanish and Italian speaking group. The two tour guides would count and re-count the group members and yet move on to the next site leaving 1 or 2 behind! What was also surprising was that the both guides were expecting tips! Why should the guide of one-language pay for the other tour guide of another language? This is meaningless.

  • This was a wonderful tour, well organised and the tour guide Manny was very knowledgeable and animated.
    We visited both Philadelphia Liberty Bell, Town Hall and the Rocky steps as well as Lancaster County Amish country, and while it was a long day, it did not feel rushed at all.
    Would totally recommend this tour to others.

  • Amish country was the best part of the trip!

  • We liked the things we saw and did, but it was hard to hear our guide and he needed to translate into a few languages. Our group, in the back of the bus, often could not hear the guide well I think there was a problem with the av?? and it was also pretty warm in the back of the bus. Our guides worked hard and the places we went were worthwhile.

  • This tour was a full on experience. The time spent in Philadelphia was rushed and there was no time to take photos whilst walking around the historic city. It was a hot day and the tour guide could have slowed down to take into account all members of the group. Although the Amish section was very commercialised it was interesting to see the Amish going about their ever day lives. Their ice cream was delicious. The downside to the tour was the constant counting of participants. This wasted lots of time.

  • A chance to see The Liberty Bell and the oldest Congress Hall. A great sense of American history. Amish Lancaster town gave you a snippet into Amish life style, the buggy ride was very informative, The only downside to this trip is the journey, but the guide was excellent and a chance to catch up on some lost sleep.
    A well worth it trip and really glad I made the effort.

  • Awesome tour. The town of Intercourse was amazing. Recommended!

  • This was a nice tour and we are glad we went but it wasn and #39;t that informative compared to other tours. They do take you to all those places but there is not that much time if you want to see or do anything. We didn and #39;t mind as we will probably end up going back to Amish country as we were snowed out.

  • Fantastic tour. Yohei was our guide for English and Japanese tourists and another one did French and Spanish. The tourists are split on the bus so we could only hear Yohei so it means we don't have to sit through 4 languages.

    Tour of Philadelphia concentrates around Independence hall first and then extends to the history of Benjamin Franklin and his involvement. Yohei also gave a talk on the bus there about how the history of the US from the Pilgrim fathers to the US Civil war which helps understand about the independence hall. On our way out we stopped at the Philadelphia arty museum which is famous for the scene from Rocky whee he runs up the steps and plenty of people did the same. There's also a statue of Rocky next to it.

    We then spent over an hour on the bus driving to Lancaster County and the town of ........ Intercourse. Yes, it really is called that. The buggy ride with the amish was good fun and we stopped at an amish farm who gave us homemade cookies which were delicious. The driver answered any question we had about their lifestyle and what they do on a day to day basis and considering the lifestyle we all live now with smartphones and computers it does amaze me how they manage.

    Finally we got an hour and 15 minutes to look walk around the town and have a look at the Kitchen Kettle village which sells homemade products and souvenirs. The weather was clear and sunny all day which made this trip even better. Highly recommended if you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of New York.
