Sightsee in the Big Apple, meet an Amish community, taste Hershey's chocolate straight from the factory, experience the Great Lakes and powerful Niagara Falls, wander along the Freedom Trail in Boston

Tour description provided by G Adventures

From big city bustle in New York to anachronistic Amish communities in rural Pennsylvania, this nine-day trip captures the rollicking history and modern energy of the East Coast. Relive the revolution in Boston, explore the great museums of Washington DC, and get soaked on the boat at Niagara Falls. You’ll travel by private van and stay in central hotels so that you’re always in the heart of the action. This trip is compact enough for those short on time, but long enough to make some new friends while discovering America’s past.
