Margaret made the bus tour so interesting. Her love for her “600 Amish friends” was truly apparent! She speaks of the Amish culture with a unique endearing heart. It just made our experience so much more real. Two thumbs up and highly recommend!

We booked in advance which was much easier, cause you can choose the right timeslot upfront. The later the day the busier it get.

Yes, but going in a bus with tour guide is advisable as you will get lot of information about Amish people or else if you go on your own wont be able to realize how Amish people are different

1st time visiting Hershey... (4 Replies)
This will be our first time visiting Hershey (second week of July). We have 2 small children (ages 2 & 7). We will be there for 3 days. Can you give me feedback good or bad about the following: 1. La Quinta Inn (not the one near airport) nice place? Would you recommend it? 2. Does it pay to get the meal plan? 3. Nice places to eat either in Hershey Park or outside area? 4. After leaving Hershey, we were thinking of going to Julius Sturgis Pretzel Factory? Worth the trip? or Not? 5....More

Sturgfs is fun, but will not take long(your kids basically twist a piece of Playdoh into a pretzel shape, and you then get to buy real pretzels). Amish Village is o ne of three recreated Amish Farms (Amish Farm and Amish Homestead being the others)Your kids will probably enjoy it. There are farm animals and a recreated Amish schoolhouse, with a retired Amish school teacher(except on Sundays) Just understand there will be no other actual Amish on site.

Which Amish House and Farm to visit (1 Replies)
I am having trouble deciding whether to go to the Amish Experience in Bird in Hand, the Amish Village in Ronks or the Amish Farm and House in Lancaster. We would not be doing a bus tour as part of our visit. I am traveling with my almost 90 year old mom. She can walk several blocks and can climb a few stairs. So is one of these sites better than another. Thanks in advance for your replies.

Well, its been some years since I have been to any of them You realize, of course that there are no Amish at any of these I do believe they all do a good job of explaining how the Amish live. I think Amish Village has the nicest setting, Amish Farm the least (It's next to a target Amish Homestead has the advantage of other attractions on siteJacob's Choice a well done multimedia presentation of the choice faced by all Amish young adults- whether to join the church or leave the only way of...More
