That was already our second trip with our guide Jutta after the trip to Boston! As expected, this trip was great again! Philadelphia is a very historic city for the USA, all the important places are covered by this tour. The visit to the Amish farm is also nice and definitely worth seeing.

The trip was very well organized. The only thing that wasn't easy to find at first was the meeting point (thanks to google) and I felt a bit alone there at first. It was not possible to find out/it was very clear who was responsible for me or my tour. But it settled itself after most of the people there disappeared in their buses. The bus driver did a good job and the tour guide had everything under control so far. Everything went according to plan so far, was very interesting, informative and entertaining. There were also times of rest. The day was well filled. Partly you could also explore the area independently. I highly recommend this tour.

The departure was a bit chaotic. Lots of buses and people trying to find the right bus. There were no signs on the buses' windscreen showing the destination and language. Anyway the trip was good as well as the guide and the driver. The guide (Jonathan) was very professional and seemed experienced. Maybe Amish part of the trip could be bigger.
