The Amish Village is an authentic look at today's Amish lifestyle. Located on 12 scenic acres, The Amish Village lets visitors experience an authentic Amish property, including a one-room schoolhouse, blacksmith shop, smokehouse market and more. To begin an understanding of the Pennsylvania Dutch culture, The Amish Village provides a 25-minute guided farmhouse tour. A 90-minute back roads bus tour is also offered to take you off the beaten path, past working farms and along country roads where buggies roll along and farmers work their fields.

The village is a good place to go with kids. Our two year old daughter hat a lot of fun there. First you will get to have a 25 Minute tour in a real old Amish house. Lydia showed us the rooms and told us some interesting facts about the Amish Culture. After the small tour you could walk through... More

Great experience to enjoy they way the Amish live. I loved trying all the food and talking to them as we strolled around town. We shopped a lot buying canned goods, gourmet condiments, cheeses, soups, craft items. Really so much fun for all of us.

My granddaughter and I enjoy the buggy ride each time we visit Lancaster Pa. We enjoy seeing how the Amish community live. This time my granddaughter was allowed to drive the horse and buggy. The gentleman was very pleasant as he gave us the tour and shared with us our interest in how they live.

Looked at this on the Lancaster tourist web site, sounds good. Found it easily, and chose to do the house tour. There was an option of a bust tour around the area, but we had done that before. Having bought tickets we were told it would be about a five minute wait, but it was nearer 15 minutes and nowhere... More

this is interesting - a guide takes you thru what was originally an Amish house. You do learn a bit about them from the guide then you can walk around the property to see the barn, some animals, the schoolhouse, and a few other buildings. There is a large sales component - the shops have products billed as Amish made.... More

My co-workers and I recently toured The Amish Village. It was a great tour! I have lived in Lancaster my entire life but I learned so many new things about the Amish that I did not know before. The staff is very well informed! We toured an Amish home. Which included, the church room, the kitchen, the bedrooms and the... More

It was nice to see the house and buildings that the Amish used, but it was not what I expected. It would have helped a little if there were people dressed in Amish attire. Some may find the place disappointing.

Was trying to decide between the Amish Village or a visit to Amish Farm & House for our family experience. Even using the coupons, we felt it was expensive for what we got in return. The tour guide's presentation was not that engrossing and when we started asking questions, he could not answer them, not being Amish himself. While he... More

Come see what it is like to live like the Amish. Learn about the traditions, do's and don't's. Hear about their origins and their values. You will be pleasantly surprised.

After passing this place numerous times over the years we finally decided to give it a try. Very disappointed. Just a lame tourist trap. To really see the Amish and their way of life you must get off the main roads and head into the country.

I am really sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience when you visited The Amish Village. The day you visited, Saturday February 21st, was during our off season time and it was a very cold and snowy day. We would love to have you visit our property again, during the Spring/Summer season, where there is a... More
