Wonderful fun engaging and enlightening tour lead by a very knowledgeable tour chaplain, Mike, who not only seemed to know everything I could think to answer, he also made my 7 year old and I feel at home by talking about some lesser known history but making it feel like he was letting us in on the big family secret. The Amish part was just as informative and fun and despite our 9am 9* tour during a winter advisory, my son and I were just thrilled by the most delicious ice cream we’ve ever tasted provided by him and purchased from an authentic Amish farm. And we were never rushed despite the cold or that it was just us two that showed. Rather we felt as though. We were his special guests newly enlightened .

It was an excellent tour to learn about the Amish culture from a very informative guide. He was very patient with my 3 kids and answered all of their questions. The family was so gracious as a host and very welcoming. The food was fantastic. The tour was definitely the highlight of our trip. We highly recommend this tour! I still refer to lessons we learned when talking to my children now that we are home.

I got to the tour and I was the only passenger, so I had a private tour! My guide Moisés is a charming person, always attentive to providing the best information. Have an amazing day!! Thank you Moses for the cordial attention. 100% recommendable!!!! Greetings from Argentina!

The very nice guide. What we did not like is that we saw few Amish, in passing, they were not at the farm they took us to and we only saw the ones we found on the way, on the road, a shame.

Love this tour was very historical and the Amish part was also very interesting and beautiful. Thank you
