Fabulous day trip. I particularly enjoyed Lancaster county and the visit to kitchen kettle. Philadelphia another delight. A nice break from the hustle and bustle of NYC.

Excellent tour with knowledgeable tour guide and safe driver. Pace of tour was good and small number of visitors added to the experience.

I booked this trip during the Xmas holiday with my parents. We all loved the day we spent there. The guide was great: knowledgeable, entertaining, gave a lot of tips for our stay in NYC. The trip was very interesting, a lot of information when visiting Philly and interesting to know more about the Amish culture.

Very enjoyable trip even if I was a bit jet lagged during the excursions. Brian Montgomery the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the places and especially the Independence period. The only minor gripe is that I initially went to the location at Empire Vacations early only to see a sign saying that they had moved back to Gray Line departure terminal, and then when I double checked with a Gray Line member he informed me that I should have waited at the Empire Vacations terminal. I rushed back to the Empire Vacation terminal to find the tour group leaving on foot to where the bus departed. I had made it just on time! Clearer signage might be appropriate. Also I found the Amish experience a bit gimmicky, perhaps an invitation inside a farm house or mock farm house would be a possible idea. I didn't think the "village style" shopping mall was anything unique. But big thanks to Brian, thanks for an enjoyable day. Cheers

Very well organised trip. Be well in advance at the meeting point. Did not expect to visit so many places in this one day trip in Philadelphia. Amish country was also interesting. Do buy the lime juice prepared by the Amish. Guide Stephano was very knowledgeable.

Irene our tour guide was informational from beginning to end. Amish buggy ride was a bit short , would have been great if we could have really gotten to know there history from them. Philadephia was nice but to short of a stay. Reccomend going on this tour although.

Well what can I say this trip was fantastic. It was a very long day but it was well worth it, I took my 78 year old mother and she also thoroughly enjoyed it. It was timed to perfection. Our guide Ben was so informative and answered any extra questions that were asked of him. I didn't realise how historic Philadelphia was. Also visiting the Rocky steps and being able to run up them was fantastic as I am a Rocky (the film) fan. Visiting the Amish was great too, the only tiny thing that did disappoint me was there wasn't more products being sold that the Amish make. They have a little village that you visit and are able to walk around the shops, I would have thought there would have been Amish people serving in them but there wasn't and most of the goods in the shops had been shipped in. The products that were made by the Amish were delicious. Great tour
