My wife had commented once that she wanted to learn more about the Amish people. I was thrilled when I found this excursion. We came out to visit not too long after Blizzard Jonah which meant that we nearly had the place to ourselves. Both of us learned so much on the tour of the traditional Amish house and the... More

We drove around the area trying to find the Armish then all of a sudden in front of us at a cross road went the first of many Armish horse/ buggies.

Our office took a group of international students from different countries all over the world to hear about an interesting part of our culture that takes place right here in Lancaster County. Though, it was a little cold, the students had a blast! It was such a great experience. Highly recommended!

The village was good to see however I didn't really learn a great deal about the Amish and their way of life as our tour guide was not at all forthcoming in answering our questions as she didn't want to give too much away about how they live. I think this is a place to go to without a tour... More

while it is commercial, it was a good place to visit with children it gave us important information plus some opportunity to experience farm animals and visit the Amish wagons.

The Amish landscape was incredibly stunning. It was very beautiful. It is a piece of heaven on earth! Also, the people were very warm and friendly. Especially Paul. He even helped me kept my lost mobile phone. I respect the values of their life. Visiting Amish Village was a soulful journey for me!

We have been to Amish country numerous times and enjoyed seeing how the people live and learning the history behind Amish living. The Amish Villiage was disappointing because it was English people giving a tour of a fake staged Amish house. The grounds had tons of tourist things to buy but no actual Amish people. We ended up driving around... More

We visited the Amish Village in December, 2015 and we were greeted by tour guides with welcoming smiles. Our driver was very informative with the Amish culture and even stopped by a road stand where you could purchase hand made Amish goods, baked goods, and even homemade root beer. We took the 90 minute package and it was worth it.

It is a good starting point to know basic information about the Amish Culture. But we were hoping to meet real Amish people and interact with them. It is like a walk in a museum basically. I would recommend the first part of the tour, the Amish house, but the bus tour you can substitute by driving yourself, if you... More

This was one of my favorite experiences out of a four week trip to tour the NE U.S. I was so impressed with the area as a whole. However, even though I know it is set up for tourist, this attraction was so informative. We chose to tour the home and outbuildings along with taking the van tour. I thought... More
