Amazing time and learned so much!!! Our tour guide Mike was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond for us when we were running behind due to being stuck in our hotel parking lot due to construction truck... Aaron and Barbie were our host and they were awesome and friendly people... The food was out of this world!!! Highly recommend!!!

Delish meal with a nice family on a sunny day
Yuliya_S

This was truly one of the nicest experiences I’ve had! Starting with the tour, our guide Mike was very knowledgeable and open to answer all and any questions we had for him. He offered lots of interesting information about the many aspects of the Amish history, community and lifestyle. Thank you Mike! Once we were done with the tour, we arrived to our destination and met by a very welcoming Amish family and their cute dog. The house is beautiful and sunny which added to the already friendly atmosphere. The meal served was delicious consisting of potatoes, meat loaf, sting beans and candied beets. Followed by dessert which like the meal was delicious. It was a pleasure to talk to the host’s two daughters Ana and Marian, they were very lively and open. They introduced us to their animals and answered more questions about school, friends and ways they spend their free time. Although I felt a bit shy, the family’s casual and friendly energy really helped to soften the vibe and make us feel comfortable. Overall this was great and I will definitely be back for another tour and family visit.. so If you’re having doubts about booking this trip..don’t think twice, you will not regret it!

This was one of the best experiences my husband and I had in Lancaster. Mike, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the Amish families in the area. On our way to the Amish home, he shared information about their way of life and history and answer many questions in a very honest and respectful way. The Amish hosting family was amazing. They let us feel like they were hosting friends and shared with us a bountiful home cooked meal. They cooked mash potatoes, beef, chicken, carrots. The dessert was some sort of chocolate cake with local made ice cream. Yummy! We also enjoyed watching their two little boys helping mom with serving the table and later playing around. The conversation with the Amish family was very casual and pleasant. What an enriching experience! This is a must do tour in Lancaster.

Awesome Time

We had a great time on this meal with an Amish Family. Our guide was knowledgeable and told us some things we did not know. The host family was very nice, and my girls loved playing with the children (me too). My mom enjoyed helping to clean the kitchen (her idea) and talking with the ladies of the home. The meal was amazing. I tried to make the brown butter potatoes at home, but they are not as good. The Carrot Cake for desert was AMAZING and I don't like carrot cake. Overall, it was an amazing time.

Amish Tour Review
WAYNE_M
, Jul 2021
The Amish hostess sat at the other end of the table, and it was difficult to hear her with the fan running at my end. The meal was delicious. The experience was nice, but a bit overpriced in my opinion. The tour lasted 30 minutes longer than scheduled.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Thanks for the honest feedback Wayne. I'm sorry the distance from the host and the fan running affected your experience. Between having temps in the mid 90's, a fairly large group, and the Amish having no air conditioning, I can see where it might have created some difficulties. We always try to balance the expectations of all of our guests with regard to time spent. It does happen sometimes that other guests linger a little long and extend the time. We value your feedback and will consider how we can best deliver a fantastic experience to all of our guests in the future. Mike

Mike was charming. Gave a good review of Amish history in the area. Not really what you’d call a tour though. Sarah greeted us warmly in her home and served a fabulous meal. She’ll even share a recipe! Enjoyed walking around the property checking out her amazing garden. All in all it was a great experience.
