A delightful ride back in time!!

My husband and I took two exchange students to Lancaster. Abe's was a wonderful Buggy Ride. Our driver, sorry I can't remember her name, was very knowledgeable and kind. The cart was clean and the horse well cared for. Abe's is set up for private tours and reasonably priced. There are two different priced trips to choose from according to... More

We followed the reviews of Abes Buggy Rides and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful, informative ride with Paul. We really felt we had an intimate glimpse into the Amish lifestyle. There is a shady spot to park and even a playground for kiddos to unwind. Very glad we chose Abes and avoided the commercial crowds.

Our visit to the Amish country was relaxing and informative. Our tour was on a beautiful Autumn day. The history and culture of Amish residents is evident on this tour. Our guide answered our questions and enlightened us regarding the Amish lifestyle. Beautiful experience.

We did our research and chose Abe's because of the great reviews. We were so pleased we did as it was such a fabulous way to spend our first afternoon in Lancaster. Our driver, David was a genuinely lovely man, we cheekily asked him to pose for a photo & he was very happy to oblige. He took us through... More

A buggy ride (horse drawn) and guided tour of Amish country by a person from the community was the best way for us to experience the way of life of these people We were luck to have Sam take as around and explain the way these people lived

We took the 30 minute buggy ride. Our driver, Sam, was very courteous and pointed out several things on the ride and answered all of our questions. My wife and I enjoyed having our very own private ride.

We have taken this tour / buggy ride with different grandkids for 3 different times. We have never been disappointed. The rides are very informative and just a fun way to see the country. Each time one of the grandkids was invited to ride up front with the driver. The last time we went, we had Ervan Stoltzfus as the... More

Our guide Ervan was fantastic. We booked an hour tour with a stop at an Amish house. Ervan explained many things about the Amish and their way of life. We learned so much. He patiently answered our questions. He was cheerful and humorous. He took us to a real Amish house where we bought some homemade root beer and talked... More

Went with 3 & 5yo. Our buggy driver Elizabeth was the sweetest lady and was excellent and patient with the kids and very informative for the adults. Animals seemed well cared for and the operators were genuine Amish. The route was relaxing with very little of it on busy roads. Prices were comparable to other advertised rides. Would love to...
