What people are saying about Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

The trip was very well organized. The only thing that wasn't easy to find at first was the meeting point (thanks to google) and I felt a bit alone there at first. It was not possible to find out/it was very clear who was responsible for me or my tour. But it settled itself after most of the people there disappeared in their buses. The bus driver did a good job and the tour guide had everything under control so far. Everything went according to plan so far, was very interesting, informative and entertaining. There were also times of rest. The day was well filled. Partly you could also explore the area independently. I highly recommend this tour.

Our tour guide, Shirley, was wonderful and did an excellent job on our tour. She was very knowledgeable on everything Amish. We learned a lot, and are grateful for her guidance! We highly recommend this tour!!!

Learned so much from our wonderful tour guide, and enjoyed our stops along the way! Touring the farm on a lovely day and chatting with the wonderful Amish women selling her crafts. A great day!!

Had a very nice day. Trip gives a good insight into Amish life. Farm is very touristy but certainly fun. Recommended.

Everything really perfect: professionalism, courtesy, itinerary, all really nice.
