Phil J. is the historian type of guide which my daughter and I appreciated. When we arrived in the Amish areas/towns, we toured the schools, churches, town stores, Amish businesses which included a fruit stand, furniture, and quilt store, and a Big Country Store which featured Amish donuts, popcorn, food, and Amish home remedies. The ride was so comfortable and Phil's van had cup holders and nice seats. Phil knew the Public Rest Areas as well. The town folk held their 1st annual Harry Potter Fest.
