Lancaster County: Amish Farmlands, Museum Tour, Farm Visit

1. Lancaster County: Amish Farmlands, Museum Tour, Farm Visit

Sit back, relax, and leave the driving to professionals on your 14-passenger guided bus tour through Amish Country in Lancaster, PA. During this 90-minute guided tour, your knowledgeable guide will show you Amish farms, homes, and one-room schoolhouses. Interact with the Amish community, while making stops at a quaint Amish road-side stand. Experience true local flavor as you sample delicious home-made baked goods, fresh ice-cream, or cold home-made root beer.  Take your experience one step further as your guide takes you on a room-by-room tour of an original, centuries-old Amish farmhouse. The guided house tour will teach you about Amish history, religion, and clothing. For overseas visitors, a written translation of the guided house tour is available in 17 different languages, so you will not miss anything on the tour. Finish your day with a self-guided, farm visit of our 15-acre farm complete with animals, local artisans, and an Amish one-room school. During your farm visit, you'll have the opportunity to eat Amish-made food from the Amish BBQ Barn. David King and his family grill delicious chicken dinners, along with PA Dutch foods like whoopie pies. While visiting an Amish one-room school, sit in Amish desks and page through real Amish school books. This farm is home to the only "Scooter Run," where you can take a spin on real Amish scooters- just like Amish kids! Meet animals, like baby goats, chickens, Alpaca and Max, the Scottish Highland steer. Feel free to explore at your own pace and enjoy some lunch.

What people are saying about Lancaster, Pennsylvania

This has been my 18th year going to Lancaster county. This was my first time on this tour. Glenn was an awesome tour guide through each event within the ticket. Believe it or not, I still learned a few things about the Amish I didn’t know. The movie was great for a smaller production. I would totally recommend this tour along with staying at Amishview inn and suites!

Our tour guide, Shirley, was wonderful and did an excellent job on our tour. She was very knowledgeable on everything Amish. We learned a lot, and are grateful for her guidance! We highly recommend this tour!!!

Learned so much from our wonderful tour guide, and enjoyed our stops along the way! Touring the farm on a lovely day and chatting with the wonderful Amish women selling her crafts. A great day!!

Had a very nice day. Trip gives a good insight into Amish life. Farm is very touristy but certainly fun. Recommended.

Fran was amazing! He was very kind and we learned so much about the Amish education and ways of living.
