Description

Day 1
You will leave NYC and head to your first destination, Philadephia, passing by the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Upon arrival, take a sightseeing bus tour to discover Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Elfert Alley, Liberty Bell, Constitution Square and Constitution Hall: all important symbols of American liberty.

You will then carry on to Washington DC, discovering the famous Rocky Steps and crossing the states of Delaware and Maryland. Upon arrival in DC, you will discover the Capitole, the Senate and the White House, accompanied by your guide. The tour of the capital then continues at the Lincoln Memorial and the Air and Space Museum.

Day 2
Your day will begin with a visit to Arlington National Cemetery, to attend the changing of the guard and see the Kennedy tomb. Then you will head to the national Mint to see how American dollars are made!

After the mint, your bus will leave Philadelphia and head for Lancaster, the heart of the Amish lands. You will visit a traditional Amish village and discover their way of life, without modern technology, electricity, running water or telephones. Take a trip to an Amish market where you can try some local specialties or pick up some artisanal products for souvenirs.

The coach will then make its way back to New York, arriving in the early evening.

  • Super expérience quand vous voulez visiter les 2 villes depuis NYC : tout est bien organisé et cadré, les guides sont au top pour tout vous montrer dans la bonne humeur. L'hotel est très correct vu le temps qu'on y passe. Nec plus ultra : le wifi dans le bus. N'hésitez pas !

  • Excursion tres interessante . Nous avons regretté cependant d' etre aussi nombreux dans le car , nous avions 3 guides qui parlaient 4 langues differentes . Notre guide , etait tres bien mais nous etions seuls francais melangés à un groupe d' italiens . Il y a 2ans , lors d' une excursion à Boston , nous etions un petit groupe dans un minibus et c' etait beaucoup plus agreable . L' hotel pres de Washington etait tres bien . La visite de Philadelphie , c' etait un peu la course !! Pour la visite des Amish , on aurait bien aimé aller chez une famille , voir leur maison et leur facon de vivre . La , c' etait plutot un village pour touristes . Mais dans l' ensemble nous recommandons cette excursion .
