This tour was easily the highlight of our weekend in Lancaster. Mike led our tour, but it felt more like hanging out with an old friend that happens to know a ton about the city.

We learned so much in such a short time. I had no idea what to expect from Lancaster, but the history was fascinating. Mike offered details and stories that offer so much context to how Lancaster was built up and operates.

After a couple hours out on a hot summer day the beers at the end of the tour were the perfect ending. I never thought Lancaster would be a location we'd make a point of visiting again, but we can't wait to go back for another tour with Lokalexperiences.com

Next time I'm really hoping to book one of their Amish Experience Dinner parties. Way more authentic than anything else you will find with travel sites. If you want to truly experience Lancaster or the Amish culture get in touch with Mike. You will have an unforgettable time.

My two best friends and I savored the history and the beer in equal measure.

Michael has a relaxed but professorial style which holds your interest throughout. He is justifiably proud of the efforts made by so many to restore and preserve the history of his home town.

The tour route is well conceived and consistently interesting. There is so much more to Lancaster than The Amish (which are never mentioned). Highly organized, Michael came equipped with extra umbrellas (which we needed). But for his being from the blue side of the Dickinson vs. F&M rivalry - he was perfect.

Our tour of Lancaster was the highlight of the weekend. Learned the origin of “stogie” and the ingenious means by which Lancaster’s brewers circumvented the Volstead Act.

Thanks to A.J. for loaning us her husband.

Old college rivalry aside, you guys were great guests too. Thanks for moving off the beaten path of Lancaster tourism and exploring the deep history of our great little city. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Thanks for reviewing and come back again some time.

History, beer and Mike-3 of Lancaster's many gems. Informative and entertaining-not to be missed. It is amazing how much history a small city like Lancaster has in a relatively small area, and Mike knows it all.

We learned so much and had a great time. Mike (our guide) told interesting bits of unknown history while we walked around town and enjoyed beer! For us locals we learned so many new things about our community. Their mission to provide authentic experiences really delivers! Highly recommend!!

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and a local. The tour provided history with a stop at 2 pubs. The pubs had a great selection of craft beer. The history we learned was interesting and informative. I would recommend the tour. It is about 1 and a half hours of walking, with 2 stops in pubs. You will learn about Lancaster, its history and its relationship with breweries.

Mike S was our guide for a little more than 2 hours. We use a lot of tours when traveling. For us it's a way of understanding what we are seeing and get a history lesson. Mike has a passion for what he does. We had a great time, learned a lot, and tasted a few beers. Ask for Mike and you won't go wrong.

There were 2 couples so nice size.

Overall an excellent experience. This walking tour of Historic Penn Square, Lancaster was truly authentic and such a great close up look at the historic district. Mike knows this town. We stopped to visit sites and sounds; the local brewery stops were a special treat. We got lucky with Mike, truly a man who knows his history and town! Take the tour - you won't regret it!

Mike was the best. He promptly found my wife and I at the meeting area. We then proceeded in a historical tour of the great city of Lancaster. Mike was extremely knowledgeable explaining the architecture and history of all the buildings and stories of Lancaster. We also visited three breweries and drank delicious beers.
I highly recommend this tour with Mike. A personal tour of the up and coming city of Lancaster and a wonderful time with Mike, who will be your friend at the end of the tour. Mike, also gave us awesome tips on where to dine too.

Super fun event to see basically ALL of downtown Lancaster and learn about the vast history of the city! Ended the tour with beers (and obligatory food) at two spots that were on my Lancaster visit-list. Mike knows his stuff and it's clear he really loves his city!
