    This is the second time we have done this trip. We actually had the same a year as we had two years ago. The guide was very knowledgeable and a great guide. You visit philadelphia first and see some lovely places, however our favourite part of the trip is the afternoon when you visit the Amish County. The area and views are stunning and it is so interesting to talk to the Amish people, to learn about their lives. You have a ride in a horse drawn cart and then go to Kettle village. We would prefer longer in the Amish County.
