I'm not sure the tour guide knows everything about the Amish Community but did a good job with the basics. It is a very old house, nothing like what most Amish live in today. Did learn things we didn't know though! Outside the kids had a Blast running around and trying out the Amish scooters and seeing the animals.

I felt the bus tour with our guide really gave us a great flavour of the Amish life. It was lovely to pass small schools and see the children playing outside in their traditional dress. The farms and farmhouses all look so good and well cared for. We saw many people using horses to plough and harrow the fields, some... More

This was amazing!!! The tour explained all about the Amish. We stopped at two Amis family homes that sold homemade gifts and food. The tour last about 90 minutes and we rode on backroads that showed all the farms and you could see how they lived and worked! I am so glad we did this tour!! Highly recommend it!

It is next to a Target, so you will have to look hard for the house. It is nicely landscaped. $18 for 2 admission that included a guide house tour and then self guided through the farm and animal areas. Our guide through the house was about 45 minutes. He was informative, given that we really knew very little about... More

We spent the day taking the Premier package with 90 min bus tour narrated by Mike that takes you to Amish farms and homes, we saw buggies and horses carrying children home from school, men cutting hay in their work buggies, women planting flowers and working in the little shops we stopped at. Had an excellent narrated tour by Ken... More

The information person at the beginning was a little too long. After visiting here I met an Amish gentleman and he told me that pretty much everything I was told was not the truth. He then proceeded to correct everything I had heard. So I'm not sure the is the most accurate place to get information on the Amish people... More

The staff is very informative and friendly. The house tour tells much about Amish home life. We also learned a lot from the self tour around the farm. The best part was the bus tour through Amish country - very informative and entertaining! Very worthwhile. One caveat - you have to look carefully to see the site from the road.... More
