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
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.
What fun in Amish. I was amidst such new (to me) and rich culture.
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.
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!
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.
Italian guide very well trained and polite, good transport and beautiful trip!
Great tour. The tour it self was well organised
However I feel that the meeting place before the tour needs to be more organised. No one I spoke to knew what was going on. Maybe better signage would help
Really enjoyed this tour, our guide was great and knowledgeable. He had a couple that needed translation but he had them sit up front and did the translation off the microphone, so thoughtful that we didn't have to listen to his conversation with them. It was nice to visit the Amish country and do a buggy ride and to visit Philadelphia and see the Liberty bell.
Great trip! Very enjoyable. Nice small group due to winter season but we made the most of it.
Absolutely awesome - it snowed the day we went but didn't dampen the mood - met great people and our tour guide was the absolute bomb! Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone !
great day stated at 7am with a pick up from grand central then we headed off to Philadelphia our 1st stop was to he oldest street i then we went on to see the liberty bell and the signed deceleration then we headed to the rocky steeps then off to amish village the to reps where very informative
This was a great way to see a lot in a little time would liked to stay a bit longer in a few places but a great way to plan another holiday around what we have seen
My husb and I took this tour with our 10yr old son. We loved every minute esp visiting the Amish community in Lancaster and going on the buggy ride. We also really enjoyed running up the "Rocky" steps and seeing the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall etc. Highly recommend.
Excellent trip. Both coach driver and our guide Michael were excellent. Particularly loved the Amish experience. Would have liked longer there but nonetheless thoroughly enjoyed it. Michael was a first class guide and went over and above his job in providing interesting facts and information.
Fab trip. Coach which is discribed as luxurious was not! It nearly broke down on way back!Philadelphia was a lovely city. Stopped off for breakfast which was a buffet but price determined by weight of food, was like canteen style!
Stopped off at Elfreth Road the oldest residential street in Philadelphia. Saw the Liberty Bell and learned all about it . Stopped off in a couple of places to have pics done like Philadelphia museum of art where there's a bronze statue of Rocky. Then onto the Amish Town of Intercourse in Lancaster County where we were driven in a buggy by Steve a lovely man who was very willing to explain the Amish way of life and was also willing to have his photo taken. Be aware that not all Amish people are willing to have their photo taken. The buggy ride was lovely, and Steve stopped at one point so that we could buy home made lemonade and root beer, much needed on a hot day. They usually ask that you give the buggy driver a dollar afterwards. We then went on to Kitchen Kettle Village where there are 32 shops and a lovely restaurant which I highly recommend. You can eat home made ice-cream in a cone (delicious). There is a Christmas shop, candle shop, a shop that sells home made jam/pickle and lots more. All in all this was a very enjoyable day out and I would highly recommend it and I thought was definitely worth a day away from The Big Apple.
Good trip. Seeing the liberty bell, and where the first Congress and Senate met were the highlight. Amish country buggy ride was interesting.
Amazing history in Philadelphia. Got to sit in Congress Hall where Benjmin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and others determined the future of America. Rocky steps was a lot of fun. The Amish experience was out of this world. Had the best turkey sandwich and apple pie I have ever had.
This was a wonderful tour. Our tour guide Eddie was informative and friendly and didn't ever miss anything. Highly recommend taking this tour. It was a perfect day trek.
