If you really are interested in the Amish and there way of life don't go on a commercialized tour. Just put new Holland Pa, east earl pa, blue ball Pa or intercourse pa in your GPS. You will find authentic Amish at work and a lot of them sell real Amish made items right in front of the farms. I... More

I was skeptical about spending the day mooning over a religious sect in PA. My college age daughter was insistent that we learn more about the Amish and how they live. Not only was the county of Lancaster a very easy place to visit, but there was good shopping (hear: OUTLETS!!!!), many restaurants and the Amish House Museum was a... More

My husband and I visited this area as part of an anniversary trip We totally enjoyed this vacation! I recommend that you take one of the bus tours first, to learn about the Amish people and drive around the countryside. We took a combination tour that included the bus tour and house and farm. There are quite a few tours... More

What a day we had. We started with a van ride around the countryside. Our van driver was very informative throughout the trip. We stopped at an Amish farm where we bought a few hand-made items. No pressure. We continued on our tour. At the end of the tour we saw the video "Joshua's Choice" which told a short history... More

For years I have always been interested to pay a visit to Lancaster, PA, and in particular to the Amish Country. Well, finally I managed thanks to some friends who live in PA and what a learning experience it was! We went to a theatre where we were shown a video that was very educational and well done and gave... More

My boyfriend and I visited Lancaster county to view 'Amish country' while on our road trip. We really enjoyed seeing the horse and buggys as well as Amish folk. We just drove through the county and went to a local store and that was a good enough experience for us! We are city people, so for us a couple hours... More

We enjoy visiting Lancaster County. There is so much to see & do. So many family owned shops & restaurants. We enjoy driving through the countryside, especially the back roads. We love stopping at roadside stands. We love the restaurants, as well.
