We really enjoyed the package! It was good value and we had good tour guides. There was a nice gift shop also, and the food the places we stopped was delicious. Very yummy soft pretzels.

Great and Unique experience to actually meet and Greet amish families at their home! We learned a lot of how and why they live their way they do. And traveling with just a small group made it very private.

Thank you for your question! Fall can be busy for us at Amish Experience, but probably not as much as during the summer, particularly if you are coming during a weekday.
