Thoroughly enjoyed this day...Stefano was a very attentive tour guide and Marcus (the driver) was brill...Thanks for a great day and to Ben also our Amish buggy driver xxx
Departed on time at 7am from the departure point (toilet facilities there and on the coach if required!) A 2.5 hour drive from NYC to Philly started with the Liberty Bell, then a tour of the former seat of congress including viewing documents of the constitution. Next stop the statue of "Rocky" and a jog up the steps!! Then it was on to Amish country and a trip in a horse drawn buggy round the countryside, stopping to chat with some of the locals, finally ending up at a market center for refreshments and souviners. All in all a great day out, really cool guide and skilled driver. Air Conned full size coach and got back to the original pick-up point (5 minutes from Times Square) about 6:30pm local. If you want a day out from the hustle of NYC and see a bit of the countryside, along with an American history lesson whilst gaining an understanding of the Amish then this is the tour for you.
Excellent tour and tour company. Well organised and tour guide was very knowledgable. Highly recommend tour if you want to see some other sites besides New York. Very interesting and informative stops along the way. Long day though. Great that bus has wi-fi and plays a movie on way back.
The trip was recommended to me by a friend who took it last month, and a thanked him for lead.
An itinerary full of history, very friendly tour guides, and Paul the nicest driver!
I highly recommend this trip to anyone!
Great guide, great tour. Driver was courteous, Stephano was a very knowledgable and interesting tour guide. We had enough time at each stop to enjoy all of the things on offer. Philadelphia, food and bathroom stops, Liberty Bell, USA first congress and Senate building and museum, Rocky statue, City Hall and the famous steps. Then the Amish community and Markets were wonderful. Great value for money and exactly as described on Viator website. Gray Line is a reliable, professional and well organised company.
Fantastic, this was probably the best guided tour that we have ever done. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative and occasionally funny. The locations visited were very interesting and just the right amount of time spent at each ,so no time to get bored . Our Amish buggy driver was also very good at explaining their way of life.
Fantastic day again very informative guide Amish country was spectacular just a fantastic day all round. Philadelphia was prettier town than I thought. Very informative when we visited the Liberty Bell. Good fun seeing the statue of Rocky and running up the stairs!!! 5 star day.
A very well organized and enjoyable trip - the visit to the Amish community was fascinating - the pickle factory where you stop for lunch is not to be missed!
Very informative tour with excellent tour guides and driver. Despite the government shut down, we still got to see the major historical places in Philadelphia. Visit to Betty Rose home was an inspired change to the schedule. I found myself wanting to know more about the American Flag, re the colours, strips and stars. Amish visit is a must see for everyone. Can't praise it enough. Overall a wonderful tour 10/10
