Tried to find a tour that wasn't so commercial. We were taken to Amish dairy farm which was very informative. Still didn't feel genuine.

Feelings are fickle things. Perhaps you would have enjoyed a private ride. You visited a real Amish farm and your driver was the owner. Our drivers take you to our own home farms. all the best to you. Come see us again. God Bless More

We took a 35 min buggy ride with our 7 year old kids this past weekend. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about Amish culture. You don't need to make a reservation beforehand either, which was convenient. They took our name and 20 min later we were on a buggy. Definitely recommend!

Thank you so much for your comments. One of the things I must often do is to give a big "thank you" to folks for making us so popular. Everything you do with us is "the real thing". Many folks find that enjoyable. No pretenses here since our drivers take you to our own home farms, you see the real... More

We had the one hour barn tour in the middle of the afternoon. They said there would be a 30 minutes waiting time. In the end, we had to wait almost for two (!) hours. The worst was that when we went onto the wagon (unfortunately they mainly use the big unauthentic wagons instead of the small buggies) first of... More

This buggy tour is not road friendly. At times when trying to cross a very congested fast traveled Route 340 they have a tenancy to cut-off vehicles traveling at 55 MPH. While on the country roads they pull over at very inconvenient areas along the road such as hills and curves making it very dangerous for vehicles to pass. I... More

Dear DW, Thank you for your concern about carriage ride safety. Statistics show that you are safer in a horse drawn carriage, than you are in your own car. There are no carriage rides in Lancaster County that do not use public roads major or minor. Our drivers are schooled in carriage safely and rules of the road... a state... More

We were hesitant to stop because there were so many people waiting, but we wound up only waiting about 15 mins. We were 6 adults and a baby and were easily accommodated. Our driver offered some great info as we drove through the countryside. We stopped at an Amish farm where an adorable little boy came out with cookies and... More

As a regular poster for Trip Advisor, and planning my kids vacation for next week, I always read the negative posts first when researching. The business response post to negative feedback is appalling how they handle negative feedback...and made me officially say "no" to their service.

Hi Dave, Opinions are like noses.... everybody's got one. :)) Unfortunately many folks who visit our area have preconceived notions about our life style. Dealing with an uninformed public is difficult at times. When they discover that their opinions don't mesh with reality, they become confused and react accordingly. Their own attitudes with perceptions determine their reaction. Our co-operative effort... More

Very enjoyable buggy ride. Our driver gave us a great tour of the area including his own farm. We got to see his adorable grandchildren and buy some homemade lemonade and cookies off his little granddaughter. If you're looking for authentic Amish culture, look no further.
