What people are saying about Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Wonderful fun engaging and enlightening tour lead by a very knowledgeable tour chaplain, Mike, who not only seemed to know everything I could think to answer, he also made my 7 year old and I feel at home by talking about some lesser known history but making it feel like he was letting us in on the big family secret. The Amish part was just as informative and fun and despite our 9am 9* tour during a winter advisory, my son and I were just thrilled by the most delicious ice cream we’ve ever tasted provided by him and purchased from an authentic Amish farm. And we were never rushed despite the cold or that it was just us two that showed. Rather we felt as though. We were his special guests newly enlightened .

Very well worth the cost of the tour! Our guide, Tim, was friendly, knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor. He answered all of our questions and offered up a great deal of history. We will specifically seek Tim out on our next adventure!
