We weren't sure we were in the right place, as this is right next door to a Target! But once you are inside, you immediately forget that modern life is right outside the door. The house tour was very informative, especially for my kids who were fascinated by Amish life. My husband and I learned a lot too. The grounds... More

I was very put off by having to drive through Target parking lot to get here. Adding to this the lady at the counter (while showing him an old map) told the guy ahead of us that the farm fields were gone now "sold to allow for modern growth". The place is absolutely surrounded by retail box stores and strip... More

Our family used to live in Lancaster, Pa. My husband and I returned for an anniversary week. The place was a little hard to find because so much commercialism is around it. That saying, once you're inside, you forget about it. We went into the big house and paid for the tour of the house and one room schoolhouse. The... More

My wife and I visited the Amish Farm and House today. We were putting up at Lancaster Marriot at Penn Square. We wanted to make it for the 10am Bus Tour. So we called Lancaster CIty Cab on the previous night to book a cab. We also made reservations online for our tickets for the Amish Farm and House tour.... More

This is by far the best Amish educational tour in Lancaster. The house is a great place to learn about the Amish culture and simple way of life. This is not a tour you should bring loud or bad behaved children because if the group is large it is hard enough to hear every word the guide is trying to... More

Thank you so much for the five-star review. We're so glad you enjoyed your tour here. We appreciate your honesty about loud guests -- it can be difficult in the house to hear if the other tour guests are being loud. Thank you for sharing your experience. More

Took the bus tour followed by the house tour. Was disappointed that both tours offered the same information. The house and grounds tour seem more geared towards families with young children. Definitely a very "touristy" option.

Thank you for review. Although there is some overlap primarily history, we strive to offer different information on our tours. They normally complement each other quite well. Thank you for bring the issue to our attention. We appreciate your review. More

This place is fun for the kids. Unfortunately, we went to the place and spent most of our visit dodging rain. We weren't able to spend as much time at the outdoor exhibits. The tour of the fam house is enlightening despite the fact that the house hasn't been Amish for over 50 years. Our guide was well versed in... More

This was a reasonably priced tour ($15) and quite educational. I would highly recommend for families unfamiliar with the Amish lifestyle.

Don't expect to visit a Amish Farm and a Amish House. They now are just lifeless museums. On the PRO side, the explanations of the guide in the house are very interesting.
