Overview

Amish Country Tours is the oldest operating tour company in Amish Country, and the only operator with certified guides. Far from the commercial clutter of Route 30, the Amish Experience at Plain & Fancy Farm sits on Route 340 between Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse, a non-commercial AAA designated Scenic Cultural Byway, surrounded by Amish farms. Our exclusive Amish Visit-in-Person Tour is the only opportunity of its kind to allow for close interaction with the Amish at work, at milking time, and in the home, and the only tour designated by the County of Lancaster as an official Heritage Tour. It is limited to 14 guests on our mini-shuttles.

We got the super saver package and enjoyed every minute of it. Our tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable. If you have a choice ask for Daniel "Bill" as your guide you are guaranteed a good time.

The bus takes you to a couple of Amish farms where you can purchase Amish made goods. They do make really nice hand crafted items. What's amazing is now clean everything is - something not found when we visited Philadelphia.

This is a very interesting attraction as it offers a glimpse at a recreated Amish homestead. The multi media presentation Jacob's Choice shows the tough decision young people must make regarding remaining or leaving the Amish community.

Thanks for visiting, and for taking the time to write a review! "Jacob's Choice" is definitely unique, with the 5 screens and special effects; glad that you enjoyed it and the Amish Country Homestead & One Room School!

Miles of absolutely green beautiful land. Peaceful journey into a simpler time. Hardy food. As a vegetarian it is a bit of a challenge to find dinner options but they are there.

Thanks for the review! Glad you were able to find dinner options, even with the "meat and potatoes diet" around here. Hope you were able to enjoy some of the local produce, too.

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.
