After driving around with two kids who had lots of questions, we decided to stop in for a tour. We learned a lot about the Amish way of life and truly enjoyed our tour. It is not very long, but it is a great way to start a vacation in Lancaster County.

We were a little reluctant to stop here due to some of the online reviews, but i'm glad we did! The tour guide gave us a nice and very interesting tour of Amish culture and way of living. It was respectful and insightful. A bit pricey, but the tour is very interesting. The tour is best suited for adults whilst... More

I have been there numerous times, but it really is not a good place if you have younger children or toddlers. You start off by walking through a house where they stop and talk about customs of the Amish. While it is interesting, but again smaller will get antsy. After the house tour you walk around the grounds and see... More

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.
