Things couldn’t go wrong when we had a PhD tour guide - Not every tour you gonna get a history professor who has a PhD. Our tour guide James is so knowledgeable and very experienced. We had a fantastic time at the Amish country - Some of us got our questions answered in depth, and some of us had a very good nap when James was talking lol. Either way, you gonna be satisfied. Completely in love with the Amish culture - not gonna become an Amish, but definitely need to come here whenever I have a burnout from work. Just being in the Amish country is a privilege - fresh air, nice view, cute animals, friendly people, organic food… Simple lifestyle is a lot of city people dream for on a daily basis, which you can find it here.

Photogenic horses and wonderful people - I loved learning about the Amish culture on this trip. Fields were being harvested and we saw teams of horses and mules pulling equipment. One of the highlights was a buggy ride with Abe’s Buggy rides. Ervan was great answering questions and Dewy the horse very photogenic. I would do this trip again!
