      Enjoyed it a lot!
      Great tour guide! She’s very knowledgeable and explains very well, with a sense of humor which makes it more entertaining and fun. I’m really glad I booked this last minute because I learned a lot about Philly and I was there for only a day. Definitely recommend!

      Spectacular bilingual tour of Historic Philadelphia
      Our tour guide Dick was absolutely fantastic! Our group included guests from Spain, who raved about the tour. Dick presented the tour in both English and Spanish, changing between the two languages flawlessly and effortlessly. He made everyone feel extremely comfortable, and was engaging, courteous and displayed a great sense of humor. He shared a wealth of knowledge. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and we highly recommend both the tour and Dick as a guide.

      Barry to the rescue
      I took an unplanned trip to Philly and wanted something worthwhile to do. I love a good walking food tour. In each city I visit I usually try to find this as an activity and here in Philadelphia it did not disappoint. Barry was very knowledgeable and historical facts and made excellent tie-ins to the food we consumed. So here's another walking food tour in the books!

      Rick was fantastic!
      Rick was a font of knowledge and spent an indigent amount of time with any of our questions, and was not trying to score points but rather simply engage in dialogue. We had a nice small group of four participants, each of which was solo. Definitely well worth it and piqued my interest to return to see some sites not on the tour, which we discussed nonetheless. Thank you, Rick!

      Enthusiastic and Knowledgeable Tour Guide!
      Carla taught me a lot about Philadelphia and America’s early history! I loved the critical discussion of George Washington’s slave ownership, the history of Carpenter’s Hall and learning about the first bank robbery in America, and the varied architecture styles (from bricks to building symmetry) present in Philadelphia’s rich history. She showed passion and excitement for her subject, and curiosity about us as tourists. Overall, I’m extremely satisfied with my experience and would recommend her to anyone!

    Our tour guide, James, was very educated on the lifestyle of the Amish and gave us a lot of information on the ride there. We asked a lot of questions and he answered them confidently. He then took us to different shops/restaurants in the city of Lancaster. We had a wonderful time and left knowing all about the Amish culture.

    This was one of the best trips we have ever been on and we have been on many. Tom our tour driver couldn’t do enough to ensure our day was unforgettable . His knowledge of the Amish was amazing and he ensured we saw every aspect of Amish life that could fit into the time allocated . We saw farmers using horses to drive farm machinery in the fields , an Amish settlement , buggies galore driving along the lanes place visited numerous shops, bakeries , work places and a cafe serving true Amish food for our lunch . Everything was perfect thanks to Tom !!

    Not every tour you gonna get a history professor who has a PhD. Our tour guide James is so knowledgeable and very experienced. We had a fantastic time at the Amish country - Some of us got our questions answered in depth, and some of us had a very good nap when James was talking lol. Either way, you gonna be satisfied.

    Completely in love with the Amish culture - not gonna become an Amish, but definitely need to come here whenever I have a burnout from work. Just being in the Amish country is a privilege - fresh air, nice view, cute animals, friendly people, organic food… Simple lifestyle is a lot of city people dream for on a daily basis, which you can find it here.

    I loved learning about the Amish culture on this trip. Fields were being harvested and we saw teams of horses and mules pulling equipment. One of the highlights was a buggy ride with Abe’s Buggy rides. Ervan was great answering questions and Dewy the horse very photogenic. I would do this trip again!
