Thank you for a great trip to Philadelphia and Lancaster. The tour was well organized and also our tour guide explained a lot and helped with everything. The Amish Village was interesting and the place, where we had lunch has some cute Little Shops with Amish specialities. And luckily it was sunny and pretty warm so we really enjoyed Walking through the Philly. If you are looking for a short historical trip to Philly, I would recommend this one.

In general, this is a really great tour to do for those, like us, who have little time, and so are looking for an all-inclusive experience. The visit of Philadelphia is very interesting. The tour guide was excellent; giving an informative commentary the whole time. The buggy ride in Amish country was great, and the Amish driver told us a lot about their lifestyle and customs. We passed by an Amish farm, and the farmer came out and was selling home-made cookies and pretzels. I bought a bag of the cookies, and ended up wishing I'd bought the whole lot as they were the best cookies ever!! However there is no lunch at an Amish farm: you actually stop at what is basically a shopping mall in the countryside, with a very basic cafeteria. There were some nice enough shops to buy some souvenirs, but nothing at all like the authentic Amish farm that we were all expecting. TakeTours should really address this. All-in-all though, the tour is good.

I recommend this tour!

A full day was well managed with good commentary provided by the tour director. However, the tour information provided details of "We will break for lunch at the Amish Farm and House". This was not the case at all, which was disappointing and indeed false advertising. We did have a considerable time for lunch at a shopping precinct and it is felt that would have been better spent with the Amish at a farm house as advertised in the past and current advertising details. We were left somewhat disappointed as a result.

Nice to learn about Amish style, The 2.5 hour ride is comfortable.

I went on this tour because in Australia we donot have any communities like the Amish. The only disa pointment was that the tour was a little more comercial than the description leads you to expect. The giudes were very good and did answer all our questions. The village we visited was not what we expected from an Amish point of view and was very much the tipical gift shop type format. The main thing was we were able to see how the Amish live and drive through their farms. Out of ten I would give the tour a seven.

I recommend this tour!

Very nice travel for 1 day round trip. The guide who came with us, for Spanish/Portuguese customers, explained to us everything we needed and was always available to take pictures of us everywhere.
