Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

A unique experience, one closer to New York that one might first imagine. It's a great history lesson of Philadelphia and an enlightening experience of Lancaster County. Early fall is a great time to go, when the heat of summer and the cold of winter aren't driving the Amish community indoors.

I took this trip with my mum on the 17th April. It was a small group which was ideal. Stefano our guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the places of interest and interacted well with all members of the group. I particularly enjoyed Amish country.

Really good trip, I would have liked to spend less time shopping and more time visting the sites of Philadelphia.

The Amish Country was lovely, the buggy ride around the farms was very good.
