The Amish Village is an authentic look at today's Amish lifestyle...

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.

I am fascinated by this culture. The Amish people bring us back to a time without all the excess and rushing around. They work very hard, but enjoy their life style.

Enjoyed the in house Amish tour. I thought it was more informative than the bus tour. When we paid for both tours I was under the impression that we would learn more about the everyday life and work experience of the Amish and get to meet them. Instead the bus tour guide took us to 3 different stops that all... More

I booked the Premium Package comprised of a 90-minute back roads bus tour, an Amish farmhouse guided tour and the experience of wandering around the Village grounds. The tour guides and staff were welcoming and pleasant. My Mother recently had knee replacement surgery and worried about slowing down the group when having to climb steps on the bus and in... More

Went on a very rainy day but was not really welcomed. The lady who took us round wasn't exactly friendly either. Perhaps it was just a bad day for staff. Fairly interesting but I wasn't blown away. I learnt more from our private tour guide than from the staff at the Amish village.

We then took the coach tour which was great, huge number of photo opps and learnt a lot more about the Amish culture. Stopped at Amish shop which... More

This was a surprisingly Nice place to visit . The tour of the farm area on foot give us an opportunity to see up close many of the farm animals and the mechanical devices the Amish use while they farm their acreage and then the tour through the farmhouse was not only illuminating but very educational for someone who's only...

Our guide answered all the questions that were asked and added more information in the answer. The house tour along with the animals and school house were great. We were able to see how the Amish live and learned much about their community. I would recommend them highly.
