You will have a chance of viewing famous landmarks and have the pleasure of an authentic Amish buggy ride in the Amish country. 

Day 1
New York – Philadelphia – Amish Country – New York

We will be departing from New York and will be heading towards New Jersey and Pennsylvania and to Philadelphia – known as the city of brotherly love. Upon our arrival in Philadelphia’s historic area, we will be visiting the popular Liberty Bell (one of the symbols of freedom in America), Congress Hall and Constitution square. We will also be visiting the Stroll Elfreth’s alley, which is the oldest continuously reserved street in America.

We will be continuing our journey by taking a panoramic tour of Philadelphia. The tour will include visits to the Financial district, Historic Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and more. While leaving Philadelphia, we will be seeing the famous “Rocky Steps” and then will be continuing out journey to Lancaster, county home of the Amish people.

We will have break for lunch at the Amish marketplace. Afterwards we will be embarking on an authentic Amish Buggy ride, crossing through the Amish farm country and learning the Amish way of living without the benefit of modern technology. They live without electricity, telephone service, running water, or appliances.

Late in the afternoon we will be departing east towards New York and arrive there in the evening.

This bus tour started silently and but within 2 hours all the passengers became friends. Thanks to the professional tour guide who kept everyone together. The tour was rightly planned and executed. Every detail of the tour was mentioned and as specified we explored the destinations.

If you want to travel with comfort, go for the bus tours offered by GoldenBusTours. The company has got luxurious buses that are well maintained and offer the best services to their customers. I really enjoyed our one day tour from NY to Amish County. The tour was well planned and carried out with good detail as well. We got enough time to explore all destinations and had a wonderful experience. I’d give five stars to this amazing tour company.

My wife was stressing on shopping for few weeks. I decided to book for this tour thinking we can do some duty free shopping and visit some new places too simultaneously.

I have a lot going on my mind and had to visit a list of places that I could not decide. To begin with I am on this tour package that is for one day covering from New York to premium outlets. Once again my favorite place, the outlets.

Visiting New York was my dream and I had planned this tour in advance. The services of Golden Bus Tours were excellent and I found the tour pretty affordable as well. The rates given by Golden Bus Tours were very reasonable and the overall services were also excellent. The company is doing a great job and providing a great service.

The entire tour was great. I cant think of anything that I didn’t like. Everything was well planned, organized and well executed as well. There isn’t a better company than GoldenBusTours which can plan and carry out bus tours with such detail. We had an amazing time during our tour. The guide was very helpful as well. He guided us throughout the trip and it was because of him that we got to see the best things Amish County had to offer.

It was a much awaited trip and we had a memorable time. I went on this 1-day tour woth my Girlfriend and we loved this tour. The fall and its evening illumination was an exciting and romantic experience. It was a short tour but it pretty much covered everything there was to see. I would book a longer honeymoon package after marriage to have a much more romantic experience. Thanks GoldenBus!

I was on the internet browsing places and happened to see this bus tour package with good reviews and I booked for it. The tour was more than perfect, but the hotel delayed in giving our keys to our rooms. Rest everything was properly taken care of.

Quality service and well organized is everyone seeks about the tour agency. Golden Bus Tour is the one that offered them and I realized that on this tour. Travelling from New York to Philadelphia, we travelled most of the main attractions. There was a tour guide with us too who was really helpful and informative. I’d definitely recommend the company to everybody.
