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.

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.
