What you can expect

Spend a day discovering the historic sights and iconic American landmarks of Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, before heading out into the Pennsylvania countryside for an authentic Amish immersion, complete with a market lunch and a horse-drawn buggy ride.

Travel by either bus or van from New York to Philly, the birthplace of America. Visit Independence Hall, where our founding fathers wrote and ratified the Constitution, and get a closer look at the Liberty Bell’s infamous crack. Charming Elfreth’s Alley—the oldest inhabited street in the country—is perfect for a scenic stroll. As you leave town, see the steps made famous by Rocky Balboa on your way to rustic and rural Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Once in Lancaster, known as Amish Country, step back through the centuries and bid technology farewell as you experience the daily life of the Amish. Savour lunch at a traditional Amish marketplace, then kick back for a horse-drawn buggy ride around the countryside. Later, tour a genuine Amish farmhouse, getting a feel for a way of living that hearkens back to a time without modern conveniences like electricity, running water, and telephones.

As the afternoon winds to a close, hop back into your bus or van for an evening arrival back in New York.
