A long day but well worth it. Philadephia is steeped in American History and including of course the Liberty Bell. One cannot miss the Rocky Steps and I even managed to run up them. Again lots of interesting little shops selling their wares and nice little cafes to have breakfast or lunch. The tour then took us to Lancaster where a lot of Amish live intermingled with other ordinary Americans not that anyone we met we could call ordinary - all lovely people. We had a ride in a buggy and our driver was a well kept 73 year old called Yarn and he had 5 children and 28 grandchildren. Well worth the experience and we finished off with a stop at some Amish Markets which were amazing. If you wish to buy one of their quilts however you had best have deep pockets.
have done this trip twice, because we enjoyed it so much, would definitely do it again,
My family and I booked this tour and it was well worth the money. Jonathan was our tour guide and was very informative. You will walk a lot during the 1st portion of the tour, independence hall,Liberty Bell etc. Very good value for the money if you’re a history buff. Thanks again to Jonathan/Mario!
Outstanding tour and great quides. Lots of information. I highly recommend.
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour and the opportunity to get out of New York for a day into some of the most beautiful, picturesque farming countryside I have ever seen - around the town of Intercourse believe it or not. There were three tour guides on board and Eddie the English tour guide was very good. He gave the history in logical fashion and then gave us breaks from his commentary. Compare that to the tour guides on hop on hop off buses who bombard you with thousands of disjointed facts. Forget the hop on hop off buses - take this tour instead and enjoy Philadelphia and the beautiful countryside where the Amish community we visited live. If you enjoy viewing rural landscapes I highly recommend this tour.
This tour was great we had a very good tour guide would highly recommend this tour. Loved every moment of it
Great tour it's a long day but well worth it our tour guide Yohei was fantastic very informative and entertaining saw all the main sights
Was a fantastic day, got to see lots of history and the city, and really enjoyed the Amish part of the trip - fully recommend.
This was a great and fun tour. I learned a lot about our founding fathers and ate some great food. The amish Country was very pretty and we did a buggy ride and some shopping I was able to find some great gifts. it was a great trip and I hope more people will take it.
What a great day out! Our tour guide Yohei (sorry if I've spelt that wrong!) was excellent. He was incredibly knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. We were so glad we took this tour. Philly was beautiful to see, and the Amish Country was lovely. Highly recommend!!!
It was a good trip but shame it was raining and we couldnt get near Rocky Steps to take photos as it was all closed for a concert

An interesting walk round Philadelphia in the morning seeing the Liberty Bell, old part of town and The Rocky steps area. Stopped after a few hours walking for an early lunch break in a disappointing mall where most of the eateries had closed down. Then a drive over thLancashire County to the Amish region. Very picturesque scenery on the trip. Had a buggy ride for 30 minutes. We were up front with the Amish man and had a really good view. Onto a Amish Shopping outlet for an hour and 40 minutes for tea and shopping. Very good and excellent ice cream, a must to try. The only downside to the trip was we speak English and half of the coach was Spanish speaking and the tour guide seemed to speak to them a lot more than in English. Otherwise a very enjoyable trip which we would recommend.
Wonderful trip. The weather complement the day into our Philadelphia - Amish Trip. Our tour guide, Manny was extremely knowledgeable, congenial, friendly and funny. He shared many of the tid-bits about the places we visited. Very impressive his keen ability of going from Spanish into Italian easily. Jesus , our driver is a highly qualified driver who made sure we return safely.
As a New Yorker , this is my second tour with VIATOR and I will recommend to all of my New York friends and family.
This was a wonderful tour, well organised and the tour guide Manny was very knowledgeable and animated.
We visited both Philadelphia Liberty Bell, Town Hall and the Rocky steps as well as Lancaster County Amish country, and while it was a long day, it did not feel rushed at all.
Would totally recommend this tour to others.
A chance to see The Liberty Bell and the oldest Congress Hall. A great sense of American history. Amish Lancaster town gave you a snippet into Amish life style, the buggy ride was very informative, The only downside to this trip is the journey, but the guide was excellent and a chance to catch up on some lost sleep.
A well worth it trip and really glad I made the effort.
Awesome tour. The town of Intercourse was amazing. Recommended!
Fantastic tour. Yohei was our guide for English and Japanese tourists and another one did French and Spanish. The tourists are split on the bus so we could only hear Yohei so it means we don't have to sit through 4 languages.
Tour of Philadelphia concentrates around Independence hall first and then extends to the history of Benjamin Franklin and his involvement. Yohei also gave a talk on the bus there about how the history of the US from the Pilgrim fathers to the US Civil war which helps understand about the independence hall. On our way out we stopped at the Philadelphia arty museum which is famous for the scene from Rocky whee he runs up the steps and plenty of people did the same. There's also a statue of Rocky next to it.
We then spent over an hour on the bus driving to Lancaster County and the town of ........ Intercourse. Yes, it really is called that. The buggy ride with the amish was good fun and we stopped at an amish farm who gave us homemade cookies which were delicious. The driver answered any question we had about their lifestyle and what they do on a day to day basis and considering the lifestyle we all live now with smartphones and computers it does amaze me how they manage.
Finally we got an hour and 15 minutes to look walk around the town and have a look at the Kitchen Kettle village which sells homemade products and souvenirs. The weather was clear and sunny all day which made this trip even better. Highly recommended if you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of New York.
This tour was excellent and our tour guide, Joseph, is first class. Joseph's knowledge of history was superb but he did not blind us with unnecessary information! Our driver was also excellent he was helpful and accommodating. However, it would have been nicer to spend more time in the Amish town. We just about had time for lunch and no time to walk around the shops and houses. Perhaps you could build in an extra half an hour to spend there. Thank you. Martha.
