Embark on the captivating experience of touring Philadelphia and the Amish Country, exploring all that this richly historic region has to offer. The full-day Excursion to Philadelphia and Amish Country tour provides a unique blend of urban exploration and rural adventure, from the epoch-making Liberty Bell and Independence Hall in Philadelphia to the tranquil, technology-free life in the Amish countryside. This is an all-inclusive adventure that you wouldn't want to miss!

Embarking on the tour in Philadelphia, you'll walk the cobblestone streets that have borne witness to the nation's founding. You will marvel at the historic Liberty Bell, an iconic symbol of American independence, and visit Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution were signed. Following the morning's urban exploration, you'll be whisked away to the serene Amish Country, where a slower, more peaceful way of life continues as it has for centuries. Here, you will get an authentic taste of rural life by visiting an actual Amish farmhouse.

Spending around 12 hours from start to finish, guests will need comfortable walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing for this tour, which will cover various grounds and transportation. The Philadelphia sightseeing is mostly walking, highlighting key landmarks in US history. In contrast, the Amish community visit offers a soothing, unique cultural experience, embodying a lifestyle far removed from modern urban influences.

The tour is not just about visiting two radically different communities; it is a journey through history itself. Philadelphia is the birthplace of American democracy, and the Amish Country serves as a living window into the past, offering glimpses into an alternate, simple lifestyle rooted in agriculture and traditional family values. This combination of historical grandeur and bucolic simplicity is what sets this tour apart.
