Rich history!
May 2021 • Couples
This experience was as much a walking tour of the city of Lancaster as it was about the Mennonite and Amish countryside. I was pleasantly surprised at the vast history of this city. It was a great tour.

A Tour to Remember!!

Our guide, Mike, was extremely informative with all the historical facts he shared. His pride of the Lancaster area shows through his presentation. We especially enjoyed visiting the Amish Creamery and the Amish family farm.

Lancaster I never knew

Excellent walking tour of downtown Lancaster with lots of information on architecture and people who formed the city. Mike, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and interactive with participants. Visit to an Amish home and viewing other farms was lovely.

Excellent Tour
We took a very interesting and informative tour of Lancaster City and Lancaster County. Our guide Phil was excellent. Prior to our arrival to Lancaster, we informed Phil that we were arriving via train on the day of the tour. Phil offered to pick us up at the train station and bring us to the starting point of the tour. We began with a 45 minute walking tour of Lancaster City. Phil pointed out numerous historical sites accomplied with interesting facts. After the walking tour, we drove through the picturesque farmlands of Lancaster County. Phil demonstrated great knowledge of Amish history and culture. We stopped by an Amish creamery and enjoyed a delicious waffle cone (after a few samples), later in the tour, we visited an Amish home and took a quick tour. Our tour ended with Phil generously dropping us off at our hotel.

A great experience!

Home Run Tour

A total home run. It was a great trip even in the rain. It really was a true behind the scenes tour. All questions answered. Ice cream was awesome! A great family activity.

Awesome history lesson!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Lancaster and professionalism of the guide “Mike”. The walking part was as described but keep in mind it is a hilly area. The trip to ice cream and Amish farm were interesting and relaxing. Learned alot about the area! Highly recommended!
