    Fabulous day trip. I particularly enjoyed Lancaster county and the visit to kitchen kettle. Philadelphia another delight. A nice break from the hustle and bustle of NYC.

    Excellent tour with knowledgeable tour guide and safe driver. Pace of tour was good and small number of visitors added to the experience.

    Tour guide was very good and had the ability to pass on his knowlwdge and keep us entertained as well. The tour of Philly was excellent including cityhall, constitution centre and rocky steps. The Amish part of the tour was a little underwellming. The buggy ride was ok but the Amish driver was not very communicative and we spent way to much time at the very commercial Amish village. Be aware that the tours are generally multilingual in our case English, Italian plus a seperate guide for 2 chinese ladies. I just found this a little off putting. Overall a good tour but not great.

    Everything went smoothly. Bruno our guide was very informative. So much to see and do. A walking tour in the morning and a visit to see the Liberty Bell. Also saw where Betsy Ross lived and a very pretty street. After lunch we saw the steps that Rocky climbed in one of his films. Also the statue of him. Later we had a buggy ride with the Amish. It was then off to Kettle Kitchen to purchase some lovely produce made by the Amish. A fantastic day out.

    Very enjoyable trip even if I was a bit jet lagged during the excursions. Brian Montgomery the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the places and especially the Independence period. The only minor gripe is that I initially went to the location at Empire Vacations early only to see a sign saying that they had moved back to Gray Line departure terminal, and then when I double checked with a Gray Line member he informed me that I should have waited at the Empire Vacations terminal. I rushed back to the Empire Vacation terminal to find the tour group leaving on foot to where the bus departed. I had made it just on time! Clearer signage might be appropriate. Also I found the Amish experience a bit gimmicky, perhaps an invitation inside a farm house or mock farm house would be a possible idea. I didn't think the "village style" shopping mall was anything unique. But big thanks to Brian, thanks for an enjoyable day. Cheers

    Was a little disappointed as I wish there was mire Amish content.
    The bus was good, the team guide could have been better. Spent a lot of time talking about himself a nd spending a lot of time speaking a foreign language.

    Very well organised trip. Be well in advance at the meeting point. Did not expect to visit so many places in this one day trip in Philadelphia. Amish country was also interesting. Do buy the lime juice prepared by the Amish. Guide Stephano was very knowledgeable.

    Irene our tour guide was informational from beginning to end.
    Amish buggy ride was a bit short , would have been great if we could have really gotten to know there history from them. Philadephia was nice but to short of a stay.
    Reccomend going on this tour although.
