What To Expect
It’s a little less than two hours to Philadelphia, where the first half of the tour features a drive along Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Elfreth’s Alley, America's oldest continuously inhabited residential street. Spend some time exploring the city’s historical attractions, like the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross House, the Constitution Center, City Hall, the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s famed “Rocky Steps,” and more.
In the afternoon, leave the hustle of city life for the quiet surroundings of Amish country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. See how the Amish live and take a ride in a horse-drawn buggy. Browse handmade arts, crafts and other products; and experience the simpler life of the Amish people.
The tour concludes with a return trip to Grand Central Station in New York City.
