Phil was great and the tour was very informative. Learned a lot about Lancaster history as well as insights to the Amish community, spoken from someone with a genuine background and an obvious close connection. Highly recommend!

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and a local. The tour provided history with a stop at 2 pubs. The pubs had a great selection of craft beer. The history we learned was interesting and informative. I would recommend the tour. It is about 1 and a half hours of walking, with 2 stops in pubs. You will learn about Lancaster, its history and its relationship with breweries.

Super fun event to see basically ALL of downtown Lancaster and learn about the vast history of the city! Ended the tour with beers (and obligatory food) at two spots that were on my Lancaster visit-list. Mike knows his stuff and it's clear he really loves his city!

Our guide, Mike, was extremely informative with all the historical facts he shared. His pride of the Lancaster area shows through his presentation. We especially enjoyed visiting the Amish Creamery and the Amish family farm.
