What to expect
This multi-day tour from New York City features stops at two of America’s most popular and important cities—Philadelphia and Washington DC—plus time in the quiet Amish town of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Transportation in a luxury coach or van from New York City. It’s a short drive to Philadelphia, where the first day of the tour features a drive along Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Elfreth 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. Continue east and move away from the hustle of city life to the quiet surroundings of Amish country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. See how the Amish live and take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage. Browse handmade arts, crafts, and other products and experience the simpler life of the Amish people. In the late afternoon, depart east for an evening arrival in Washington DC and an overnight stay at a 3-star hotel. On the second day of the tour, visit the Thomas Jefferson Memorial by the Tidal Basin and see the Changing of the Guard at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington County, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington. Your visit continues to Capitol Hill. See the Capitol, Senate, and White House to understand the core of the US government before visiting the Lincoln, Washington, Korea, and Vietnam Memorials. The tour concludes with a return trip to New York City.

This was worth the look pity Gray Line didn't get this right!
Apr. 2018 • Couples
After having the best time with Gray Line doing the 2 day Niagara tour we were pumped and ready for this tour. It didn't get off to the best start with a rude guide telling us where to sit on the bus then finding out that the same guide was looking after 1 person on the bus whilst the rest of us had to share Stephano. He was trying his best but looking after Italian & Spanish speak guests at the front of the bus. There rest of us that spoke english were shoved up the back and it made us fell like were were second class citizens. The hotel we stayed at was terrible with people yelling in the hallway slamming doors etc even after complaining we had to move rooms to get sleep! The tour was informative and was worth it but the fact we had one lady looking after one person who actually spoke very good english (as we were talking to him a lot) and 1 to look after 3 other languages and over 20 people was very disappointing. I suppose its the luck of the draw but when you compare our 2 trips this was not worth the money compared to the Niagara trip that was worth the same but we got value for money!

Gonna love some odd expirience.
Sep. 2017 • Family
My uncle booked this tour for me and my cousins. We all complained because of the short time but we loved it especially Amish country, it was surprisingly inspiring despite of the odd lifestyle. Going to Washington was tiring but the whole trip was worth it. Learned so many things and eat a lot as well.
