My sister and I took the bus tour through the farmlands and loved it. The tour guide/driver was very informative and talked about Amish people with respect rather than judgement. He covered all topics regarding them from farming techniques to religious beliefs. If you visit the Amish Village take the bus tour, I wouldn't have enjoyed just the grounds as... More

Marge was our tour guide for the bus tour. She has lived in the are for 15 years. She was easy to listen to and was knowledgeable. She had rented from a Amish family for several years and had an inside perspective of their culture. The countryside was gorgeous!! We went by several of the schools. I loved seeing their... More

I was really looking forward to learning more about the Amish and their lifestyle and after reviewing some house tours offered in the Lancaster area, we decided on this one. It was 1.5 hr drive from Allentown and the place was easy enough to find. We purchased our tix to go thru the house and then we would be allowed... More

My husband and I signed up for the farmland tour. While it was somewhat informative, our guide could not finish one sentence without been distracted by other stuff. It gets irritating after awhile. We do not want to know she has been peeing in the corn fields or what she does when she is not working. She offers a lot... More

Understanding about the Amish culture and people is definitely the most interesting part of visiting Lancaster county. Since you can't just come up to them or join in their way of life, visiting a reconstructed Amish Village and taking a tour of their home and back country is without a doubt the best way to do it. Traveling with little... More

This is a must for anyone visiting the Amish. They show you so much about their way of life and explain everything in detail. This has to be the best. Went to other sites while we where in Lancaster but this is the best. Do not take the bus ride boring and long. Go for a buggy ride at Abe's... More

It was beautiful! I didn't have enough time to explore more. I wanted to do the horse and buggy, but I'll definitely do it next time!

I had the occasion to visit the Amish Village with my wife and mother-in-law over Labor Day Weekend! We took the house tour and the bus tour throughout Amish country, Both tours were informative and worthwhile. Marge was the bus driver and our tour guide for the bus portion of the tour. It is apparent that she loves what she... More

It was a bit disappointing. We went around several buildings and found that we wanted to leave almost as soon as we came in. It was not that informational and felt almost like it was highlighting the Amish, who live right there, in such a commercial way. It was just not what we expected. We were believing a little more...
