Such a wonderful, learning experience! Tour guides were impressive with their language skills and historical knowledge. Timing for hop-on, hop-offs is just right...never a dull moment. I thought it was going to be a loonnggg road trip on the tour bus, but the day went by so very quickly. This trip is well worth your $.
I really great trip but would have liked a little more time in Philadelphia
The tour guide was great and very humerous!!! He also was very informative! Awesome experience and would definitely recommend going! Bring a book along or a small blanket since it's about a 3 hour drive there and back!!!
Our trip got off on a negative start with the bus being over 30 minutes late arriving, adding to this was the confusion are to where we were supposed to catch the bus - iternary gave a street number but no numbers were visable on the store fronts nor was there a sign indicating where we should assemble - then came Eli (think I have his name correct, he was our tour guide) who was wonderful and quelled our fears! Once en route our guide was very knowledgeable and humorus and paid attention to every nationality on board. I do have to point out that the bus driver was the bus best driver I have encountered. Visiting Philadelphia was an educational experience and meeting the Amish was a trip not to be missed. This trip and tour company are highly recommended.
It was wonderful & emotional to see where America all started. Great guide & driver.
Tour was excellent and there were many very good landmarks to see. As well the time spent at the Amish farm and craft area was also very nice to see. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
Great day, all parts were beaut .....cultures ...tour guide well informed ...we 3 enjoyed ...
Great trip. onlly spoilt at the start with the female tour guide saying that that she had no booking for us. eventually another girl found our names on another sheet. She appologised but the first girl did not and it was rather embarresing to be put off the coach as she said that she did,nt have seats for us. we would have liked a little longer at the Market place as by the time we had stood in a long line for lunch we did,nt have much time to look at all the shops. Buggy ride was great fun with a lovely amish girl
An excellent day out! However lunch was very early and in Philadelphia. I would much rather have experienced the Amish Lunch at the "Farm" - it looked good and was very reasonably priced. If time is a factor it would be worth an extra hour on the tour!
It was really great to get to know more about the Amish who were so nice with us! The Guide was great!
Amazing. The tour guide was so knowledgeable, with more than enough information. The visit to the Amish country was incredible, great bunch of people.
Enjoyed the day very much. Very good guide and explained everything to us along the way.
This is a whistle-stop tour, so if you want that then it's good. You do meet real Amish people and get a buggy ride through a real working farm. The staff and guides were laid-back and friendly, too, which made the long day easy going for all. I recommend it.
I had a fantastic day. The tour guide was really nice and had a bubbly personality that made the day very enjoyable. Seeing the Amish was a highlight. I would recommend this tour.
Great trip, knowledgeable, friendly tour guides, lovely air conditioned bus. Would have liked more pamphlets at the historic sites but apaert from that it was an amazing day
Tour was brill loved the Amish part of the tour only down side is you don't get enough time in Philadelphia
The day started early at 7am but the main reason is to avoid the traffic getting out of NY. It is a great way to see the city of love - I learnt a lot more about US history - Sharon our guide was very informative. It was at times hard to hear her in the coach unless you were sitting up the front, this was due to the fact there was another smaller group of non-English speakers at the rear of the bus. We also visited Amish country - only to have a 30min buggy ride and to spend 1.5hr at the marketplace for lunch and souvenirs. We returned to NY city by 5-6pm. It was a good day out.
Last day of holiday andneeded to get back to hotel to pack. Because of rain and queues we were over an hour late - that was fine - I would not have wanted them to cut anything short, I think the guides did the best they or anyone could.
BUT, coming home the driver took a wrong turn and that added another hour to our return journey. - bad , surely some one could have noticed the mistake as well as drive being aware of road signs.
My daughter and myself enjoyed the trip to Philadelphia and Amish country very much
the guides were very informative and the weather ws great! thank you so much for your tours!
Great tour. Philadelphia is a fascinating place! Unfortunately it did rain for the buggy ride but that can't be helped. I also don't think we needed that long at the shops
