Overall rating

based on 4 reviews

We enjoyed the activities provided by the Amish experience. The tour, film and house were very informative. I would recommend this for adults and older children. I thing young ones would lose interest.

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.

One of the best experience I've ever had was to come to Lancaster to experience Sight and Sound Theater and the Amish Experience

The Van tour was very interesting and informative and our guide spoke from experience since he was Mennonite.

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