1. Private Lancaster County Amish Tour from Philadelphia
Only an hour outside of Philadelphia lies the beautiful landscape of Lancaster County, home to many Amish and Mennonite families, and a popular tourist destination. Join this unique private tour of the beautiful country and discover the fascinating customs of the people who call it their home. Learn about the Amish and find out why they eschew electricity, opting instead for horse-pulled buggies instead, simple farm machinery, and austere, uniform-like clothing. Take a trip back in time as you drive past the long ropes from which hand-washed laundry hangs. Visit a traditional local bakery and take a buggy ride of your desired length. Afterwards, tour a museum set up as the Amish have lived for over two centuries, and stop for lunch at one of the great family-style restaurants in the area.
