Excellent and interesting tour to the Amish country. Phil is very knowledgeable and professional. I enjoyed my time in his company. Would strongly recommend him
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Abdullah, I had a great time, too! Your enthusiasm for learning more about the Amish people was refreshing! Hope to see you again soon!
Given this was our third tour with Phil, it's fair to say we are a fan of his tours, knowledge and company. Visiting the Amish communities was a highlight of our trip and Phil added to the experience with great information which provided historical context to the founding of the community and their way of life. A couple of stops to view and sample the wares was welcome. Highly recommended as always.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to 5-Star tour experiences and we appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of the service we offer our customers. We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer if there was anything our guide, or ToursByLocals, could have done differently to have made this tour a 5-Star experience.

The actual time in the Amish community was interesting and informative. There were six of us in the 15 passenger van. Phil's narrative could not be heard except by the two in front. Phil's driving was a concern to all of us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I apologize for any inconvenience that my have occurred. No one expressed any concerns during the tour so I'm a little surprised by the rating.

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.

Really enjoyed the tour with Phil. A friendly, knowledgable guy who went out of his way to make sure I enjoyed it. He was also happy to add an extra bit on to the tour at my request at the end. The car was clean and tidy and the driving was good too. Very happy to recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Niall! I'm glad you enjoyed the tour! Let me know the next time you're in the area and we'll do Pittsburgh! Thanks again! Phil

Phil was not available so recommended Chris N. who was great. He may not have known as much as Phil about Amish history but very personable and going out of his way to provide us with a wonderful experience.

Phil went out of his way to accommodate our interests & needs. He was friendly, conversed informatively without being chatty. I would highly recommend Phil as a guide, also the Amish tour. We liked the comfort of riding a sedan, and the private customized tour.
