Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    My husband Marcus and me, Petra, had a gorgeous day trip to the Amish people in Lancaster County. Our Guide Tom was an excellent driver and wonderful Tour Guide. He explained everything to us and answered aaaaaalllll our questions with an absolute passion for what he is doing. He showed us hidden spots to get a really good impression of the Amish Lifestyle. We are more than happy with this unique experience of what we learned today. It was a very good decision not to go there on our own, but to book that Tour with WeVenture. We couldn’t imagine a better guide than Tom and can warmly recommend Tours with him. The bus was very comfortable too and the other guest, Christina, was such a lovely companion too. Thank you soo much, Tom, for doing such a passionate job. 👌🏼💐

    Wonderful experience! Great driver and tour guide. Incredibly knowledgeable young man who knew incredible amount of information and wonderful stories that he shared with us almost constantly throughout the 1 hour tour. Fred, the hors, was a bit of a character too. Might seem like a lot of money but worth every penny
    PS Driver, horse and carriage very clean

    This trip from Empire Vacations is good. BUT But!!! If booking through Viator beware.

    The Saturday tour does not go to Niagara Falls first. If you want to start and finish in NYC than ok, but if like us you choose to skip the drive from Washington back to NYC and continue your holiday in DC, it wont happen from the tour starting Saturday. You will spend your time on the bus searching the internet trying to work out how to get to Washington from Niagara Falls. Viator are aware, we have told them and asked them to update their info, but 1 month on it still hasn’t happened. Viator has credited our card a partial refund of @ 1/6th.
    So if you book direct with Empire Vacations you should get the dates and tours correct. The hotel rooms were large and the beds comfortable. Jutta was a great guide and super helpful also making sure we were at Capitol Hill way before a demonstration was supposed to be happening plus she had plans in place if there was trouble. Our next guide Peter (you swap to another bus ie 2 x 2day tours)... Well... we were not fans of Peter.

    All things considered, the tour was well organised and enjoyable.

    My 5-day tour was broken up into two legs, with two different tour guides and tour groups. I enjoyed the first leg (Watkins Glen, Finger Lakes, Niagara Falls, the strip at Niagara, 1000 Islands, and Toronto) more. In large part coz of Niagara Falls— totally breathtaking!— but also coz the tour guide was better, and the group was more respectful of punctuality compared to those on the second leg of the tour.

    The second part of the tour (Philadelphia, Amish county, Washington DC) was tainted by tour mates who were almost never punctual (which compromised the itinerary), a smelly and dirty bus which reeked of poo (i suspect someone did a no. 2 on the bus toilet despite being advised not to do so), and an itinerary that included a little too much shopping (that was at the expense of more sightseeing and also time for museums).
    Also, on the second leg, due to unforeseen circumstances, there was a last minute hotel change from one in Alexandria, VA to another one in Cheverly, MD. The hotel was good. But i was not sure it was in a salubrious and safe neighbourhood.

    However all things considered, i would still recommend the tour. Though had I known the second leg would be less than ideal, i may have opted for the 3-day tour (i.e. the first leg only) and forgo the second leg.

    It was very informative. A great way to see the city, We took it all the way around town and then we took it again and got off where we wanted to.

    This tour provides you with an excellent opportunity to see the US in a nutshell - the Niagara Falls, DC, a major city, and something unique in the face of the Amish Country! A must, especially for Europeans.
