“A shopping trip not a tour”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Our guide took us to 5 Amish farms to shop. He was not Amish. Even though he had lived in the Harmony area for a long time and knew a lot of the Amish people, he knew little of their religion or how younger generations were living. He also told us personal stories about some Amish people in his community that was just gossip and not our business. The people we visited did not seem at all happy to see us and did not talk to us except to complete sales transactions.

“Great way to spend a few hours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Depending on the guide, the "in-car" Amish Tour is the way to go. We've had really great guides (a retired Air Force officer) and a so-so guide who belittled the Amish away from their faces. In any case, this is a way of life so far removed from our own that is boggles the mind.

“quality goods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

We took the self drive cd tour. Glad we did as we could stop at any of the homes or pass one by that did not sound like something we would be interested in buying. Just for information the tour directs you to homes of the Amish that have goods they have made for sale like furniture, jellies, baskets etc. The cd did give some background information on the Amish lifestyle that was interesting. The tour took us about 1 1/2 hours and we did not stop at all the homes.

“Tour of the Amish Countryside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Two friends and myself toured guided by Ken who drove my car through the roads of the Amish Countryside. His story of the Amish taught us the ways of their lifestyle from birth, marriage, death and described the "Old Order" of the Amish. The tour took us to the homes of Amish where goods were sold- sorghum, Maple syrup, quilts, custom furniture, canned goods, baskets and other things. The furniture and quilts were beautifully hand crafted . This was also time we met the Amish welcomed us with warmth and kindness. For me, the delight children playing, running and building. On the country side it is common to see carriages pulled by horses in buggies. Ken began the tour that the Amish are Christian and their simplified life is to glorify God.
