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.

This was a great trip, meeting all my expectations. An obvious highlight was Lancaster Country and the Amish. It was pleasing to get away from Motorways and big cities for a change.

Very interesting trip with masses of information about American history. A chance to stand where George Washington and the first government of the 13 United states worked to govern their newly independent country. Very big group 51 but guides managed to move us around and not lose anyone. The Rocky Steps were a big favourite with many in our group. Amish buggy ride was through beautiful fertile farm land in a less orthodox community - some solar panels in use, accepting tourists , working outside the community which is in a small settlement with non- Amish families. A busy and rewarding trip.

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.
