This was by far the best tour I’ve experienced since I’ve been coming here for the past 3 years. Overall, we were impressed by all the staff, especially our guide, who was so knowledgeable and excellent a tour guide. We’re looking forward to coming next year!

We felt immersed in the Amish culture in the brief time we had. The guides were so knowledgeable. The time was well spent and the Amish Experience helped us to develop a much better understanding of Amish beliefs and lifestyle. The guide had a beautiful outlook and conveyed some very important truths about life. It was a “wonderful good” day. Thank-you!
Exposure to culture is very important for teaching and creating tolerance and diversity.

I wanted to personally thank you and your staff at the Amish Experience for being so accommodating yesterday. I realize that our arrival 30 minutes late would have thrown most venues into a tailspin, but your team reacted with a back-up plan that was superb. At no time did we feel rushed or that we had missed anything. Our guide for the homestead and farm tours was sensational. He was informative, entertaining, and most importantly, he knew how to engage both adults and children in his discussion. I’ve visited Lancaster several times and was truly amazed by everything I didn’t know. The breadth of information shared with us, from details about dress and family dynamics to the historical account of the development of the community, was astounding. The film “Jacob’s Choice” was also enlightening. Thank-you again for a memorable visit.

The tour exceeded our expectations in that we were able to experience a real working farm firsthand, not a ‘simulated’ re-creation. We were made to feel right at home at every place we visited.
It was a wonderful experience and exceeded my expectations. We enjoyed the tour of the Amish Country. The experiential theater was great. Everything ran very smoothly. The tour guide was terrific. The study guide was very helpful in preparing the students for the trip. Follow-up activities were very good, also. The whole day was very well run. It was a pleasure to take our classes to the Amish Experience!
