Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and honored people's time commitments.
We enjoyed seeing the Amish farms, schools, businesses and phone "booths".Our driver was very informative and answered lots of our questions. The stops were interesting and we were not hurried so we were able to make desired purchases. It was raining and our driver parked at the doorways so we're didn't get drenched!
The guide on the tour was very informed,willing to answer questions, very gracious and patient.neat tour!

Jim was great. We learned a lot. Every stop was worth a return trip.
Tour was great! Driver was very knowledgeable and friendly.
I would highly recommend the Kalona ByWays Mini-Bus Tour to others traveling in the area. We were running very late, due to a doctor's appointment. We were still able to do the tour with a wonderful guide named John. Thank you!
Our driver was very friendly and personable. He made the tour very interesting, and he was very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
Very, very interesting, fact-filled tour of the Amish By-ways. I can think of no other way to have learned so much, and to have actually seen working farms and how the Amish live their lives. I would have driven right past everything without even knowing what I was seeing. Very good value, and really appreciate the stop at the bakery: I think that's the best strawberry-rhubarb pie I've ever eaten IN MY LIFE. PS: PLEASE PLEASE get someone in your office to create a Tripadvisor listing for this tour, as well as the Amish dinner tours. Otherwise, it is extremely difficult to find out that this tour exists.
Very personalized, comfortable. Good pace.
Pretty much everything about it! We really enjoyed the local guide - he obviously knew his way around the backroads and was very familiar with the families and their histories. His own family's story of Amish to Mennonite transition was interesting, plus the anecdotes about his grandfather(s). We were pleasantly surprised that the tour made several stops at businesses - we enjoyed buying something local or getting ideas for future purchases at each stop. And then scenery was wonderful. Thanks again for a fun experience close to home.
