Tour was great - not really impressed with the Philly cheese burger - should have had a better explanation as to what we were buying. My second tour with company and previous guide was far better. I realise time is a concern but would have loved more at Amish & markets Would certainly still recommend this tour.

We had a great trip with Empire Vacations. This is our second trip with this company and we would definitely recommend it to anyone that loves sightseeing. The trip is mostly about Philly. The Amish part could be bigger. Would love to visit a farm and see how they live and what they do on a daily basis. This trip is just for the market and a buggy ride with the Amish. In other words, anyway, I would love to recommend this trip for anyone who wants to experience a lot of history in one day. We had a really nice guide: Ben! He knows everything down to the details!
