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.

Enjoyed the tour. We purchased the premium which included a bus tour. Both home and bus tour guides were excellent. Very informative an open to questions. Bus tour stopped at a few Amish stores and we were able to buy some outstanding jellys and breads. Highly recommend this tour, experience something different.

This is a wonderful experience. They give a tour of a real Amish house. There is a wonderful little gift shop and other things on the grounds you can explore after. They have a real one room schoolhouse, animals that you can feed and pet, exhibits of carriages and other items the Amish use, a blacksmith shop and other shops... More

Great guides. Loads of knowledge on Amish. Not hackneyed. Straight info on the lives of their neighbours and friends in a manner that contextualizes the Amish in the antique to the modern age. Great references for further excursions. Respect and fraternity with local Amish apparent and appreciated. Margaret was an AMAZING guide. We took all her recos and left Lancaster... More

If you wanna see firsthand how the Amish people live, make this visit and it'll be worth it. Go for the premium tour. On the bus tour, you get to see the farms and shop for fresh fruits and veggies at very reasonable prices. During the village and farmhouse tours you get to see a school, inside an Amish house...

We chose the farm house and village option. Nothing special. You start in a gift shop. Then a walk through a few rooms of a farm house with a brief explanation of Amish living. The "village" is a small area with a few Amish buggies, a school house and blacksmith shop....none of which are manned. Also a "market" and gift... More

We only did the farm area and bus tour, not the house tour. Farmhas many animals that is more geared to smaller children. We were bored by it. Shops really sell mostly junk. Good part was the bus tour. Guide really knows his stuff about the Amish and takes you past really neat houses, businesses and farms. It is strange... More

A real Amish working village allows the visitor a glimpse of how the Amish live. An interesting experience I would recommend.

We booked the three hour tour and we loved it. Bus tour was very informative and we were able to chime in and ask questions as we went along. The story and history of the Amish is fascinating and we enjoyed learning more. Our guide was also excellent and incredibly passionate. Her joy, excitement, and enthusiasm shined through and made...

Absolutely loved the Amish Village. I brought a group this fall and everyone had nothing but praises about their facilities. The kids had a blast, loved seeing all the animals in the farm, and even got to feed the goats. The staff was super accommodating and they even provided the option of taking the tour in Spanish!! This was definitely... More
