What people are saying about Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

It was an excellent tour to learn about the Amish culture from a very informative guide. He was very patient with my 3 kids and answered all of their questions. The family was so gracious as a host and very welcoming. The food was fantastic. The tour was definitely the highlight of our trip. We highly recommend this tour! I still refer to lessons we learned when talking to my children now that we are home.

Il tour si divide in tre parti: - giro in autobus per la contea. Permette di vedere gli Amish nella quotidianità e alcuni paesaggi. Un paio di soste per comprare souvenir e prodotti tipici - visita guidata alla casa Amish. Molto interessante per capire alcune curiosità sulla loro vita - giro libero per la fattoria, è possibile vedere molti animali.

Such an enjoyable ride. Rebekah (spelling?) was very knowledgeable and gracious. God was glorified in the ride!

Amazing insight into the lives of Amish people and their awe-inspiring way of living without technology

It was a wonderful experience. We learned sooo much! Tim, our bus driver was great!
