Overview
The trip from NYC to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, can take up to three hours, so if you’re looking to make the long trip, you’ll usually have to rent a car. This guided tour to both Philadelphia and Amish Country lets you bypass the hassle of renting a car with included round-trip transport aboard a bus or van equipped with Wi-Fi. Plus, you can also take an Amish horse-drawn carriage ride.
What to Expect
This Philadelphia and Amish Country tour meets at the Gray Line Visitor's Center in New York City. Hop aboard your vehicle for the day—depending on your group size, either a van or a coach bus. Either way, you’ll have onboard Wi-Fi access.

Your first stop is in Philly, which is about two hours away from NYC. Spend time exploring main attractions, such as the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House, and Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Afterward, continue on to Lancaster to see Amish communities up close. Learn about how the Amish live and even get the chance to take a horse-drawn carriage ride.

Your tour ends back where it started—in New York City with drop-off at Grand Central Station.
