Highlights
  • The Amish Farm and House - Sit back, relax and let us take you through the real Amish country backroads. Your driver-guide will drive 25 miles into countryside not easily found on our own. From the window, you’ll see Amish homes, schools and farms. Depending on the season you might see Amish working in their fields, children riding on scooters and horse & buggies traveling to and from.

Your driver-guide will be narrating as you see the Amish going about their everyday life. You’ll learn about agriculture, farming techniques, weddings, family traditions and how they live in our ‘modern world’.

It’s not just all on the bus; we make two stops at Amish farms where you’ll get to interact with the Amish folks. You’ll have the opportunity to purchase goods made from the very hands who made them! (not on Sundays)

A great experience! - We had such a great time with our guide and she was very knowledgeable about the history of the Amish! My fiancé is originally from Lancaster and he also enjoyed learning about everything! We were able to stop at local stands and grab some fresh produce and moon pies.

The Cookies and Puppies too!! - A lot of fun and very interesting, our farm house tour guide was extremely knowledgeable as well as entertaining with her responses. The cookie tour was good. We used some of the recipes for the holidays. We would have liked to go to at least one more location however the best part was meeting the new puppies at one of the houses they brightened the day immensely wish we could have taken them all home.

Best Tour in Town!! Do the Amish Family Cookie Tour if available! - EXCELLENT TOUR! I took a group of 5 friends and they said it was the best tour they've ever done. We did the Amish Family Christmas Cookie tour which includes a narrated bus ride tour of the countryside along with visiting 3 homes of Amish families for Christmas cookies. We got cookie samples and recipes. Our bus tour guide, Martha, was great. The families we visited were Wonderful, Welcoming and the cookies were great. If you want an opportunity to visit a few Amish homes and speak with a few families, sit in their kitchens and experience a little bit of their lives this tour is for you! I'd highly recommend this tour if you're in Lancaster. We went to Sight and Sound theater for a play one day and then decided to stay an additional day. The Amish bus ride and cookie tour was an excellent way to spend our second day. The tour of the Amish Farmhouse was also EXCELLENT! Very informative (can't remember our tour guide's name). If you want to learn about the Amish, this is the best tour in town in my opinion!

Excellent... will be back again in 2024 - Excellent value for the money. The tour guides, both on the driving tour and farm house, were extraordinarily knowledgable. The tour guide also provided a small sheet with local recommendations (Amish and English restaurants, farm creameries, etc.), which is very helpful. Highly recommend this tour.

Rolling Amish Land - I took this tour...wait, I am the coach operator! I drove this tour and our guide with the same first name as mine, Tim, lead us around Amish Country in Lancaster PA on Nov 18,2023. Simply fascinating! Tim the guide was excellent! Very informative as to the daily habits and lifestyle of the Amish. Reasonable souvenirs, pretzels and other baked goods to die for, the tour was one I'll never forget. Thanks!

Great Experience - This tour was a great experience overall. The tour guide was interesting and entertaining. I learned a lot about the Amish that I didn't know before. We got to stop at a few Amish owned stores that I never would have known about. I also enjoyed walking around the farm and getting the house tour.
