We only did the Bus Tour on our trip to Lancaster. We enjoyed seeing the Amish farms and stopping at a few of their shops. My first complaint is our bus driver spoke broken English which was hard to understand what he was saying. A little disappointing considered the price we paid. To me if you are going to have... More

Our driver/guide (whose name I regrettably can't remember) was excellent. He gave us a very informative tour of the Amish countryside. We made 3 roadside stops to sample some of the Amish delicacies and speak with the Amish vendors. We were also given a tour of the house and farm by a different guide who also explained to us the...

Loved walking through this house and seeing how an Amish family would live. It is a real house, and he tour guide pointed out a lot of interesting facts. The farm, school house, and there's a wood shop where u can buy cute souvenirs can keep you entertained for a while.

Before I write a scathing review, I want to at least point out the good aspects. The guided house tour was interesting and so was the self-guided tour. I loved the covered bridge, the various buildings and especially the one-room school house that had a retired Amish teacher that answered questions. She was really nice and knowledgeable since she has... More

The house at self was hard to find. Our guide was not really friendly and he told us many wired things. He did't know that Amish celebrate Christmas, that Amish buy their beds at IKEA... Additionally, the furniture you can see inside the house are also a kind of question raising; in the kitchen were cabinets they looked like the... More

I appreciate the time you spent to give us your review of our visit. Our Amish home represents the décor, furnishing, and adaptation to modern conveniences that are found in the majority of Amish homes today. Part of our house tour explains how the Amish actually use forms of electricity (whether supplied by generators or wind power or even batteries)... More

The driver was quite informative, giving us a good background of the Amish and their lifestyle. We stopped at 2 stores along the way and these are run out of family homes,... More

We visited the Amish Farm and House a little over two weeks ago, and this tour was one of the most disappointing stops we made during our entire tour of Pennsylvania and New England. I don't know what annoyed me the most: the fact that they rang up our tour fee on their computer, that their store was filled with... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your visit. The farm (where the Amish Farm and House is located) predates the Target store (by nearly 300 years!) so we pride ourselves in our long history and are glad you found a great experience in your visit. More

The Amish farm was better than expected. What was the base of my expectation? Well, before the end of 1989, I stayed one night at a Mennonite house in Central Pennsylvania. I always thought that I had the real first-hand experience. So I did not expect that much. We arrived there on Thursday afternoon. Immediately after we arrived, one gentleman... More

You really learned a lot on your bus and house tour and experienced a lovely afternoon on our farm. Our Amish friends are usually on the farm on Fridays and Saturdays and on certain days our Amish farrier is out in the barn. Katie, our Amish schoolteacher, is out in the school during the week, however. We hope you were... More
