MANHATTAN: As locals to New York City, these city tours are our specialty. By simply strolling through one of the many famous museums, look up and around at the massive buildings or exploring the vibrant neighborhoods of Manhattan and the outer boroughs, you will find that New York City is filled with history, music, culture, architecture, art, fashion, theater, politics and so much more. One visit to NYC and you will discover why it’s the city where anything can happen!

WASHINGTON-DC: One can’t help but feel patriotic while visiting our nation’s capital. From the beautiful monuments, to the touching memorials, visiting Washington DC is truly inspirational. Although this city is steeped in tradition, it has become very cosmopolitan and offers a lot more than just politics and history.

PENNSYLVANIA: is one of the few places where industrialized, populated cities and a community that still functions without electricity coexist. Philadelphia, also known as “the city of Brotherly love”, is Pennsylvania’s largest city. Once the meeting place where our Founding Fathers laid the groundwork for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, people now come to Philadelphia for its landmarks, a famous Philly cheese-steak and the Liberty Bell. A trip to Pennsylvania would not be complete without stepping back in time and enjoying a slower, more peaceful pace in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Learn how these farming people live without the modern day amenities many of us take for granted.
