Tips for Planning Your Visit
For the complete Amish Experience, you need travel no further than Plain & Fancy Farm on Route 340, halfway between the villages of Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse. (GPS: 3121 Old Philadelphia Pike, Bird-in-Hand, PA 17505).
Ticket purchase, tour check-in, and departure all take place from the theater box office in the east parking lot in front of Amish View Inn & Suites. Along with buggy rides, great shopping, and incomparable dining at Smokehouse BBQ restaurant, here you’ll find many ways to discover the world of the Amish…

Sundays are a special time.
For the Amish, it is a day of rest, worship, and visiting. You might have heard that everything is closed on Sundays in Amish Country. Not True! While some businesses close on Sundays for a whole host of reasons, there are still plenty of things to do. The Amish Experience is open on Sundays from 11:30am-5:00pm. All our tours are available on Sundays EXCEPT the VIP (Visit-in-Person) Tour.
What is different about the Amish Experience on a Sunday?
Unlike Monday-Saturday, the Amish Farmlands Tour (90 minute guided bus tour) is not able to stop at an Amish-owned shop during the tour. We’ll substitute another stop featuring local crafts or foods on Sundays that is not Amish-owned. In addition to the Farmlands Tours, the Theater (“Jacob’s Choice”) and guided House & School tours operate as well.
