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.

Philadelphia and Amish Country Day Trip from New York

Philadelphia and Amish Country Day Trip from New York

Departing New York City, you'll drive through New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. It's the second largest city on the East Coast, and only 100 miles (160 kilometers) from New York City.

Upon arrival in Philadelphia, you will embark on a panoramic tour that includes Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Elsert Alley (the oldest inhabited street in America) and more. Arriving in the historic heart of Philadelphia, you'll visit the famous Liberty Bell and Constitution Square and Hall, symbols of freedom in America.

Departing Philadelphia you will see the famous "Rocky Steps" before continuing to Lancaster County. After a break for lunch at the Amish marketplace (lunch not included), you'll have an authentic Amish buggy ride through Amish farm country. During the ride you'll learn how the Amish live without modern technology - no electricity, running water, telephone service or appliances.

In the late afternoon your tour heads east for an evening arrival in New York.
