My husband and I wanted to see the way the Amish live and thought that this place looked interesting. There was an Amish house and farm grounds that you could tour or a bus tour. We decided to tour the house and farm grounds. The tour started in the small gift store where you buy your tickets, around $9 per... More

This was such a great place to stop. The inside of the house was explained. Then there was a little village outside of the house along with animals. Be sure to stop.

My mom and I are staying in Amish country for a couple of nights, and we have to say it wasn't what we expected. I did see three carriages on the roads of Strasburg, and there were a couple of shops open, but we weren't seeing the Amish crafts so much. I actually talked mom into going to the Amish... More

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
