On the tour of the Amish area, our guide Tim gave us a lot of background knowledge about the Amish people, their background and their religion. There were several stops along the way with the opportunity to look at and shop Amish products and food. Tim also told on the trip about how the Amish today live among The English and what they deal with besides agriculture. During a tour of the house, we got a good insight into the daily life of an Amish home.

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!
