This was our first stop in Lancaster County. It was a really nice little tour with fantastically maintained facilities. Our guide was really nice and welcoming and gave us a really interesting introduction to Amish life and culture. Worth the price of a visit!

I did others "Amish tours" in the area of Lancaster and this is one I prefered : -1) They don't try to sell you the "close to the real people" thing : it's a re-construction site, but well made, and in the end, quite close to the reality... -2) The tour is quite interesting, but the best part is to...

My sisters and I stopped in and decided to do the Premium experience tour, $26, which was really a good value. The bus tour guide did a fantastic job of sharing and showing.

Pricey!! But EVERYTHING in Lancaster has a price, not much to do for free. So take cash but stay in a budget. The animals are funny. They love for you to feed them and friendly. The tour is a bit boring but educational..

Wanted to see some Amish life but knew our 2 yr old would be bored. This place caught our eye bc of the animals. Short house tour by a knowledgeable yet not Amish guide. Perhaps an Amish guide would be a nice touch, but still a good tour. We were shown 5 rooms of an Amish house and toured the... More

I found this place interesting if a little overpriced. There are options to tour the house and grounds or to take a bus tour and also tour the house and grounds. Given that there were 3 adults in our group with 3 young children, the house tour was a bit tough to get through without disturbing the rest of the... More

I liked everything about it. They probably could add a few more animals for the kids to look at. The cold apple cider was great at the store nearby and it is an interesting tour of the Amish life.

Was a nice place to visit, but in my opinion a little over priced for the tour. Tour lasted 15 min at most and paid $18 for the two of us. The grounds were nice and there were cute baby animals we were able to feed.

House tour. We had a great guide from whom we learned a lot. Many things to see in the house, as well as the grounds. Did not do bus tour, seemed like overlap with the buggy we already did. Highly recommend

Gave a great insight into the lives of the Amish. Our tour guide was Brad, who was very informative (and easy on the eye, girls!) If you are in the area I would say it is definitely worth a visit.
