Many people have commented on touristy the location is. Yes, it is touristy, BUT it allows one to learn more about the Amish culture. When you enter Amish Village, you have the option of simply browsing the gift store, or taking a tour of Amish Village (a portion of which is well narrated), or taking a bus tour through the... More

It shows people how spoiled we are with all our modern toys. Cars,cell phone, telephones and electric. We our lost if we lose our electric during a storm. I think we should live one week like the Amish people and may we would be thankful for we have.

We enjoyed the bus ride, the bus driver was knowledgable of Amish Culture. The tour through the house, farm and stores was nothing overly exciting, but if you haven't visited any other Amish "experiences", then this is a decent introduction.

The tour guide was terrific in explaining Amish life, articles of clothing, and home life was very engaging. This is one of the few places that is open on Sunday!

This attraction features a guided house tour of an Amish house ($9) and/or a bus tour ($20 - combo ticket $26). We had a house tour guide that was very nice, but unfortunately was so lengthy in her descriptions of each room that we discreetly left after the 2nd room - we just couldn't take any more! I was also... More

This is a good place to stop in Lancaster County for information on the Amish and their way of life. The tour is interesting, if maybe a bit expensive, but you will get a general overview, which is not so simple any other way. The information I got here was very valuable and allowed me to put the Amish way... More

The Amish Village provides a 25 minute tour for about ($9 per person). The tour was interesting and our tour guide was very knowledgeable! After the tour, you can stroll through the property which includes a gift shop, a snack shop, a one room schoolhouse, and a small barn. A good place to spend about 1.5 hours with the family.

A good introduction for anyone wanting to learn about the amish lifestyle before touring the area. The visit of the house also gives you access to a little school house manned by a "teacher' to whom you can ask any questions you failed to ask during the tour. The tour is a bit rushed (25 minutes) which means that you... More

This was such a waste of time and money. The tour guide sounded like a robot, and the information provided was just one step above common sense. The outside buildings offered no demonstrations or guides to talk to you - just displays and plaques. The schoolhouse was particularly silly. Skip this and save your time and money.
