We were very impressed by "Coach" and his knowledge of the City of Lancaster, its history and its architecture. The fact that the tour then took us out into the countryside and we were given a thorough history of the Amish and the Mennonites was both enlightening and entertaining. Our guide has many, many years of experience giving tours, and had many personal asides and anecdotes for us. He took our vehicle through a maze of winding roads, past all sorts of historical gems, and knew every bit of the area by heart. "Coach was friendly, conversational and informative, and I would highly recommend this tour.

Phil is very knowledgeable and his mennonite roots allowed him to be an excellent source of information. He showed us the city and the go to spots, while sharing the rich history of Lancaster, paired with the tour of the peaceful country where we visited a few locations and met some amish people. The sights are great but you are really paying for a very thorough insight into Amish history, culture, lifestyle and the historic significance of Lancaster. He is well connected and respected by the amish community.

We had out-of-town guests and wanted to have them see Lancaster County. They were very impressed, and we learned some new things as well. Our tour guide, Phil was very knowledgeable about the county, it's history, the Amish and Mennonite culture and what changes are occurring and what is presently happening within the city of Lancaster. We definitely would schedule another tour for other friends when they visit!

We had a great tour, despite COVID-19. I learned many new history lessons about Lancaster, PA, and the region’s role in our nation’s history. The walking part of our tour was hot, and my littles (5 and 7) got restless at times, but Mike moved us along quickly enough to minimize any acting out. I got the feeling the tour would have been more involved if not for restrictions due to the COVID situation. Nevertheless, we went to an Amish creamery where we enjoyed ice cream, and I picked up a few whoopie pies. Next we visited a local Amish farm where my kiddos got to play with Jacob, Linda, and Martha and their kittens, goats, and pony named Starlight. What fun! The tour was a bit pricey, but we had Mikes undivided attention and access to his vast knowledge of the history of the area. I’m glad we went.

As a college professor of Modern World civilization I can be very picky about how well tour guides handle such tours. Indeed, I usually am. But not here. Phil did a wonderful job and his personal relationship to the Amish community allowed all sorts of insights no true outsider could have offered.

Had a wonderful tour with Phil! He was very knowledgeable about everything in and around the city! Told us all about the Amish and their lifestyle. Walking around the city was an eye opener with the rich history and architectural treasures. We will be bringing our friends with us next time and will be sure to book with him. The drive in the country with the ice cream stop was delicious. Well worth every penny.

Excellent walking tour of downtown Lancaster with lots of information on architecture and people who formed the city. Mike, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and interactive with participants. Visit to an Amish home and viewing other farms was lovely.

We took a very interesting and informative tour of Lancaster City and Lancaster County. Our guide Phil was excellent. Prior to our arrival to Lancaster, we informed Phil that we were arriving via train on the day of the tour. Phil offered to pick us up at the train station and bring us to the starting point of the tour. We began with a 45 minute walking tour of Lancaster City. Phil pointed out numerous historical sites accomplied with interesting facts. After the walking tour, we drove through the picturesque farmlands of Lancaster County. Phil demonstrated great knowledge of Amish history and culture. We stopped by an Amish creamery and enjoyed a delicious waffle cone (after a few samples), later in the tour, we visited an Amish home and took a quick tour. Our tour ended with Phil generously dropping us off at our hotel.

A great experience!

Excellent knowledge and the ear pieces were awesome.
Our tour guide, Michael was top notch. Very knowledgeable of the history of the city and the Amish. Walked at a pace so that everyone could keep up and was not rushed at all. One of the cool things about this tour was the ear buds we all wore. This allowed everyone to hear and not miss anything due to traffic noise or too far back either when walking or in the van. The ice cream was the best I've had and the family we met was very sweet and kind. I would book another tour with them if we were staying in the area.
