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 Philadelphia was so neat all the historical documents, the Liberty Bell and its history, we all climbed Rocky stairs and of coarse had a Philly cheese steak.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!

Very enjoyable and very informative. really pleased we did it.
Absolutely superb! What a wonderful 2 days! Guide Eddie and driver Pete were first class and every part of the trip from Philadelphia, through Amish country and onto Washington was fantastic. For us from the UK it was a dream come true and many ticks on our bucket list! We cannot recommend this trip high enough.
Wow, what a trip. Stephano was wonderful, extremely knowledgeable and funny. Washington was packed as it was Memorial weekend, but he managed to time everything precisely so we got the most benefit of our tour. A huge thank you to Frank our driver also. Awesome team. This trip was worth it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and our guide Richard was fantastic- very knowledgeable and helpful. We didn't think so much could be fitted into two days but everything was timed to perfection.
We would certainly recommend this tour!

Brilliant tour with great guide Victoria and driver Marco. This tour is great value and very factual.
This was definitely the best tour, not to be missed, the guide was very knowledgeable, and also kept us entertained, I would highly recommend,
Trip was great. Guides were helpful and informative. Managed to see a lot in the given time slot if on a short visit to NY City but also want to see a little of Washington DC, Philly and Amish Country. Would definitely recommend. Thanks heaps and also for getting us back to NYC at a reasonably early time of night.
The whole tour was very well organized. We managed to visit all the attractions in schedule, there were no delays. The tour guide, Stefano, was very nice. He spoke italian for the whole group, and explained everything in enghlish once more just for me and my friend. This is the perfect trip if you have limited time and want to see both cities. Just enough time to visit the most interesting places. The hotel was old and needs a lot of renovation,but its ok for one night. Thanks to the whole team,the experience was really worthed!!!
Enjoyable tour. Bus was comfortable and the tour guides were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Hotel in Washington is decent, but you're there so briefly so its just a bed you need. Only downside was not seeing the holocaust museum, but hey you can't do everything I suppose.
Excellent trip. Everything was good. The two tour directors and the bus driver were excellent. They got us to certain dstinations on time and made sure everyone stay on time. Didn't get to see much of the Amish Country because of time but that still didn't interfare with the great experience of the whole trip. My husband and I had great fun and would take another trip with Viator.
Interesting tour with informative guides. Journey was good with great planning of stops. Excellent hotel included.
