This tour was great. Jonathon was our tour guide and we were a group of 14 with English and German speaking people. We also had approx. 25 Spanish and Italian speaking people on our tour bus but their guide was Stefano, who was also amazing. We all traveled in one large bus and although it may seem like it would be confusing with all the different languages it wasn’t at all. It was actually quite enjoyable and proved that no matter where people are from or what language they speak and understand we all are able to find a way to communicate and enjoy eachother’s company. Jonathon and Stefano were a great team and they both seemed to genuinely care for all of us. Jonathon was amazing and his way of reliving historical moments made the tour so interesting. I would recommend this tour in a heartbeat and would definitely say to make sure that you ask if Jonathon will be your guide. He was very communicative and kept us all informed of the activities and events. I would caution that there is a lot of walking involved so bring lots of water and wear comfortable shoes. Our bus driver (I can’t remember his name) was also pleasant and great and made sure we got to our destinations safely.
Excellent, informative and fun! Our family of 5 my husband, myself, kids 18,15 and 12 years old really enjoyed this 2-day trip from New York to Philadelphia and Amish Country on Day 1 and Washington DC on Day 2. Everything was organized - covered all the stops in the itinerary, sufficient food and toilet breaks, comfortable bus with free wifi and our extremely knowledgeable tour guide Ben provided all the information that you wouldn't be able to get if you do it on your own. Loved the authentic Philly's Cheesesteak break! Like us, if you're checking out from NYC for 2 days, the convenience of being able to bring all your luggages on board the bus is a plus. Interestingly, our trip ended by watching the film National Treasure on our way back to New York good recap of the places we've visited : Thank you Ben! Highly recommended!
We were a little concerned about dedicating 2 days to this tour and depleting the days we had in NY but it was well worth it. 4 of us loved the trip. Very interesting places to visit, Philadelphia, the Amish village called Intercourse - I kid you not !! and Washington DC including the Arlington cemetery .
Our tour guide Stefanos was super, he was very informative, good with historical facts and good fun. He made it a very enjoyable tour. One of the best parts was starting the second day early so we were at certain sites before they got busy with tourists. The tour is packed with lots of places to visit. We stayed at the Wyndham hotel in Washington which has large rooms and an adequate breakfast included in price.
An extremely busy two days but the content was phenomenal and I think would have been impossible to do by myself in the same time period. Our guide, Jutta, was knowledgeable, humourous and efficient. I learnt so much about the early history of the United States and its influences on current governance. It was inspiring to visit the 'so-often-seen-in-the-media' national monuments, and also disheartening in a way to wander Arlington Cemetery where so many, mostly young servicepeople's, lives are remembered. The trip to Lancaster County and the Amish farms was beautiful and our Amish guide informative and welcoming of our questions and interest. Again, I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
Great tour with informative guide. A tour that gave us a taste of Amish life, Washington and American history. A comfortable bus and overnight hotel stay. Free WiFi on board made staying in touch very easy. A recommended tour.
A must take trip. This trip had a lot packed into it. What a very enjoyable trip. Jonathan was our tour guide. He was awesome. He was so friendly and knowledgeable it was so memorable reliving the history that Jonathan shared with us. It brought back memories from school way back when. Jonathan answered every question usually about history that was asked. Philadelphia was so neat all the historical documents, the Liberty Bell and its history, we all climbed Rocky stairs and of coarse had a Philly cheese steak. This trip was never boring, the large bus was very comfortable and we stopped enough times to get off the bus to eat, visit site and for bathroom breaks. Comfortable shoes are a must. Jonathan had this big blue and white umbrella so that we knew where he was at all times in case some one wonder from the group. Philadelphia was nice also, we went to an Amish Village shopped then rode in a horse driven buggy driven by the Amish. I really liked the buggy ride. Onto Washington were we stayed at a comfortable hotel. the breakfast I think was just for us. It was not just a high carb breakfast. It had every kind of breakfast food. I was really impressed with breakfast.
I was really looking forward to the Arlington Cemetery visit and I was not disappointed. The walk to see the Changing of the Guards at Arlington were a little bit challenging for some because it was a bit long and up hill,but I walk every day so it was no problem. My son keep teasing me about all the people that I was walking faster than. The walk was at your own pace so there was no pressure. When we were almost back in NY Jonathan played New York New York for us. It made me smile.
I highly recommend this trip it was fun and never boring.
Excellent trip! Well organized and tour guides were great! Would highly recommend it!
