Great tour guide, very informative. The line to get in the Liberty Bell was too long so we had to do a little detour and came back to Liberty Bell.
Early start from bus depot not a problem easy to find we were greeted there by staff who were polite and helpful.Having got onto bus which was very clean and comfortable Laura was our tour guide she was. Very knowledgeable and gave us loads of info on NewYork as we made our way to Philadelphia she spoke many languages and acommadatted everyone who was in our tour party.Philadelphia was amazing we did a tour of the liberty Bell and saw where the first Senate of America presided very good ranger told us the history goit to take loads of photos then we had brunch which was very good at a eating place called the bourse laura chose well and it catered for everyone's eating you had to pay for this food isn't included .Having stopped to have brunch we got back on the bus and made our way to the rocky steps this was a highlight for me getting to run up the stairs and a good photo opertunity too it was then back on the bus for another view of the city thgen a walking tour of old Philadelphia this was amazing seeing the oldest street in America the church where George Washington attended absolutely incredible. Onto Lancaster county to meet the Amish this was another highlight getting to travel in a buggy driven by one of the older Amish men he was a gentleman and the scenery was awesome what a beautiful place we had lunch then in a Amish village type shopping place called kitchen kettle village this was good again we had free time to eat and sample and buy things local to the area plenty of choice for food and all home made we ate kettle cafe.This tour was one of the best we've ever done the weather was good to us the tour guide Laura, marcus the driver and the company made it a brilliant day out.
Very interesting history: seeing the first H of R and the first Senate rooms was fantastic
My and I enjoyed the trip so tremendously, and I recommend it to all my friends and family. The English Guide tour was superior! So informative!
this tour was much more than what I'd expected thanks to our guide Nina/Nadia her knowledge was very impressive and her language skill as well as her people skill were appreciated.

What a great tour. However a little too much time spent in Philadelphia and not enough time in the Amish country. Would recommend this trip to anyone
Our tour guide was very informative and this tour delivered on everything that was promised. We had sufficient time at each of our destinations.
What a great tour - a real highlight of our trip. Our guide to Philadelphia was very informative giving us a good insight into its history. The drive into Amish country was a delight with a chance to ask as many questions as we wished of the lady driver of our horse drawn carriage Will certainly recommend this tour to friends.
Fantastic. We had a small group of 15. It was raining but we had a great time.The guides was excellent. I must also say that the local company was great as we missed our original date for the tour and they were able to swap us to another day.
This tour was absolutely great value for money. It was a busy day with a fair bit of bus travel involved but very worthwhile. The tour guide was really knowledgeable and managed the trip well. The trip to Philadelphia was really interesting and worthwhile but the highlight was the trip to Lancaster County for the Amish experience. The Amish we met were very welcoming and happy to talk about their lifestyle. I was a bit worried beforehand that we might be intruding but we were not made to feel like that at all. I would highly recommend this trip.
Had a wonderful dat out to Philadelphia and the Armish country. Tour guide was very good and managed to cover two languages for other tourists
Lovely day saw all the Major highlights in Philly and topped the day off with a special visit to Amish country on the way back.
This trip was dynamite and the tour guide was very knowledgeable - we would definitely recommend it to all.
A very good tour, something different from NYC. Highlights were the Rocky steps in Philly and seeing first hand the Amish way of life. Guides were very informative.
Perfect day tour and guide. We packed so much into one day. All the best sights in phili and the Amish tour was memorable. Would highly recommend!
there are other languages available for this tour, but viator does not show the option
Philadelphia was great, especially the old historic parts and Liberty Bell museum.
The Rocky steps offered a great view of the city.
The Amish trip was sensational. The Kitchen Kettle Village was fantastic - great food.
Great day out. Beautiful countryside and really enjoyed the Amish part of the tour. Highly recommend this tour.
Our driver and guide Dan were informative and good companions for the day of refreshing our knowledge on Philadelphia,the original 13 states ,Benjamin Franklin and the founding history of the USA.The Liberty Bell history was significent and very enlightening,a great experience for our bus load of passengers.
The Amish experience was very informative and our conclusion was that they have a lot to show us and that they are doing very nicely separated from mainstream USA.
