Experience historic sites while traveling the pathways of the Underground Railroad in Lancaster County across river valleys, farmland, cities and small towns. Located just north of the famed Mason-Dixon Line, Lancaster County was a magnet for freedom seekers due to its network of religiously-inspired Abolitionists, free African Americans and white sympathizers, including civil rights pioneer, US Congressman Thaddeus Stevens (1792-1868). Be inspired by a professional historian and storyteller who brings alive this little-known yet significant history from the years following the American Revolution to the outbreak of the Civil War. Gain new perspectives on social issues in America today.

Randy knew the old stories of the Underground Railroad and the new stories of the difficult fight to preserve the history. We loved this tour and highly recommend it.

If you are looking for a true "experience" this is the tour for you. You won't see tourists - or tour buses for the entire excursion. We visit and experience the real and remote areas of Lancaster County that only locals know, well off the beaten path of a typical PA Dutch Country tour. Our groups are never larger than 14 people and we provide inside access and information not known to the public through relationships we have with the Amish and Mennonites here in Lancaster. Our guides have Amish relatives, Mennonite roots, and are deeply connected to many people here in the county with a wealth of knowledge and information. This may not be the cheapest experience, but the access and one-to-one attention you'll get is priceless. We even stop on real Amish farms that the public doesn't have access to (not listed on the itinerary). We look forward to introducing you to new cultures among many other gems and informative nuggets you'll get from this experience!

Inclusions: Snacks

This experience was as much a walking tour of the city of Lancaster as it was about the Mennonite and Amish countryside. I was pleasantly surprised at the vast history of this city. It was a great tour.

I understand that we are all dealing with Covid 19 during this stressful time. However we decided to take this tour and booked many weeks ahead. The tour was cancelled as we were boarding our flight to fly out west and left us stranded. No hotels. Just sent a little email saying I hope you get this email that the tour is cancelled. Extremely unprofessional. Didn’t offer to try to help us make other arrangements. Will definitely hesitate to book on Viator again.

Excellent tour for those looking to explore the Hamptons and LI wineries. Ronald was informative, patient, more than accommodating and most important knowledgeable. Ron was also very sensitive to our concerns regarding Covid and it was obvious that his precautions were above standard. Highly recommend this tour.
