Trip was great. Guides were helpful and informative. Managed to see a lot in the given time slot if on a short visit to NY City but also want to see a little of Washington DC, Philly and Amish Country. Would definitely recommend. Thanks heaps and also for getting us back to NYC at a reasonably early time of night.

The whole tour was very well organized. We managed to visit all the attractions in schedule, there were no delays. The tour guide, Stefano, was very nice. He spoke italian for the whole group, and explained everything in enghlish once more just for me and my friend. This is the perfect trip if you have limited time and want to see both cities. Just enough time to visit the most interesting places. The hotel was old and needs a lot of renovation,but its ok for one night. Thanks to the whole team,the experience was really worthed!!!

Enjoyable tour. Bus was comfortable and the tour guides were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Hotel in Washington is decent, but you're there so briefly so its just a bed you need. Only downside was not seeing the holocaust museum, but hey you can't do everything I suppose.

Excellent trip. Everything was good. The two tour directors and the bus driver were excellent. They got us to certain dstinations on time and made sure everyone stay on time. Didn't get to see much of the Amish Country because of time but that still didn't interfare with the great experience of the whole trip. My husband and I had great fun and would take another trip with Viator.

Interesting and informative tour of Washington and Arlington. The Amish Country Tour could have been better, very commercial shop selling products and farm tour was not as interesting as expected.

Covered the major sights and it is worth staying overnight due to the amount of driving involved. A great snapshot. Perhaps a bit rushed in Philadelphia, but there is a lot to fit in!

The tour was great as was the guide. However at the end of the tour the guide gave us the "compulsory" speech about tipping as "you are Australians who are unaccustomed to tipping". We had already decided to tip, but her speech was confusing and my husband reduced the tip to what he thought the guide asked for. However I thought he got it wrong. Her request was 20% of what we paid for the tour each which would split 3 ways. The driver and another guide, who was on the tour for the Hebrew/Spanish speaking passengers. Given the price of the tour and the comments that tipping was optional I was disappointed by the request. All that being said the tour was very good

Very good, brilliant. The only complaint could be the the hotel where we stayed didn't give a lot of rooms the wake-up call. But other than that everything was good

Excellent trip. We were taken close to each venue and our guide gave a very interesting and informative talk answering any questions. The overnight accomodation and eating stops were good. Well worth the travelling.

This trip was really good and fits a lot into a short amount of time, would recommend it it if you only have a short amount of time to visit these cities. The first day we visited a lot of historic sites in Philadelphia including the Liberty Bell, the first street, Betsy Ross House, Independence Hall and Congress Hall. We then finished the day in lancaster visiting the Amish Country and enjoyed a Buggy ride around the area. The over night hotel was very comfortable and included breakfast. The second day we visited Arlington Cemetery to witness the changing of the guard, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, The Lincoln Centre, The White House, Captial Buliding and the Air and Space Muesum, there were a lot of school field trips on at the time so a lot of children to navagate through over both days which took away from the experience a little.

*Be aware if booking this trip that it was in 4 different languages (English, Italian, Spanish and Hebrew) which did get a bit annoying at times as it wasn't with head sets, there were 2 guides, which were helpful, one more so than the other.

Overall a great 2 days, got to see and expereince a lot in these 2 cities and learn about America's history.

Philadelphia and Washington DC were fabulous. Great tour with a great itinerary, would absolutely recommend. I didn't know that I would be on multi-lingual tour (German/Hebrew) and was one of only 3 English speaking tourists. I had to ask a number of time for English translation, which was frustrating. Our guide seemed uninterested in his job.

There was virtually no organization at the meeting place at Central Station. The staff made no effort to find out who was booked on which tour and we almost got on the wrong bus. It was quite chaotic. Once under way all went well except that four different languages were being used for explanations which was very tiresome. Also we spent more than an hour on a detour to New Jersey to pick up other passengers while we had to be at Central Station at such an early hour. Then there was a mix up with passengers and another 20 minutes was wasted. Once the tour was under way the places visited were very interesting and we had enough time in each place considering it is just a two day tour. A one day return trip to Washington DC would be far too rushed I think. The three star hotel accommodation was far better than expected, in a newly refurbished Howard Johnson Hotel. The driver was particularly good and drove safely and carefully.

The whole group 35 people met at Manhattan, but the bus went out of way to pick up 4 guests in New Jersey. The driver can't find their hotel, so we wasted more than 1 hour just for that. Went to Philadelphia Mint, but it was closed. We have total 3 guides since they mixed 4 different languages groups English, Italian, German and Hebrew into 1 trip. The Hebrew guide just keep smoking among the group, even though we have young children there. The driver and guide don't know how to get to Arlington Cemetery, we went around The Pentagon more than 5 times another 20 minutes wasted. We finally got to Arlington Cemetery after someone in the tour uses his Google map to guide the driver there.
