Don’t miss this experience! - Our experience was amazing! Dale knew so much about the Amish and he shared a wealth of knowledge. Emma, our host prepared a delicious homemade meal including dessert. Best meatloaf ever!!! She and her children were friendly and receptive to us. She even had a table of goods she made that we could purchase. I purchased a cookbook she wrote and some homemade bread and jam. Don’t miss this tour!

Memorable - I was so impressed with not only the look of the Amish people and their culture that our guide had but also the relationship that he had developedi with each site we visited which allowed him to take us through the properties.

Excellent! - Our Guide for this Tour was "Sandy" and she was absolutely amazing. She was filled with so much interesting information and so many helpful hints. We learned a lot from her. Sandy was incredibly accommodating as we had my Mom with us who had a walker. I'm guessing this isn't something that happens often. Sandy was very helpful with getting it on and off the van. Sandy was very open to questions and did her best to provide the answers. Our lunch was at the home of Emma Stoltzfus and her three children sat down and had lunch with us. The food was endless and delicious. We actually asked for a couple of recipes, yes, it was that good. Her home was very warm and welcoming and she was open to answering questions. Her three children were amazing tour guides *smiling* After lunch they took us outside to introduce us to their horses and dogs and to see their property. I hate to bring this up but our only complaint and it would be minimal, was that the van was jam packed. We had read this in other reviews but thought those might have been one-of experiences. If you're taking this tour, I'm guessing you should expect to have the van jam-packed.

Disappointed - We were disappointed with our tour and visit with an Amish family. The family did not introduce themselves or carry on conversation. They didn't really talk about their lives and how it is to be Amish. For the price we paid, I do not feel like we got the experience I was so looking forward to. The tour guide was friendly and informative, but the overall experience was not worth the price.
