    We had such a wonderful time! Mike was so great and knowledgeable about the areas we went and saw. You can tell that he is passionate about this town and the people there. The ice cream was the best ever!

    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    We are sorry you didn't feel you got the value you were looking for on your experience. We appreciate and will consider your feedback. On rare occasions, the family at the second stop is unavailable to interact with our guests, but we do feel that the information given about the Amish on the hour and a half driving tour as well as the two stops, combined with the history walk in the city, is aprropriately priced. We understand that subjectively, some guests may feel differently. We take your comments seriously. Thank you.
    Not to be missed !

    The tour was great ! I had no idea Lancaster was rich with so much history and culture. The Amish visit was so informative and we were able to meet some of the Amish children, pet the horses, and even enjoy amazing ice cream that was included. I give it a 10 out of 10!

    Enjoyable Lancaster Experience!

    I enjoyed the 3 hours spent with our guide Michael on Monday. We had a small group of 3 - a diverse wonderful experience of Lancaster walk, followed by Amish countryside. We stopped by a farm with a creamery and an Amish well-to person’s home. The experience felt real, unlike a touristy event. I learned so much in 3 hours and enjoyed myself at the same time!😀👍

    My kids and I loved the ice cream! Try the popcorn, it’s amazing. My daughter loved all the animals and my son loves his new bird house.

    I enjoyed this tour of a few spots in the city of Lancaster as well as some Amish farms. We had the opportunity to have casual conversation with local Amish people.

    Jim_M, Jun 2019
    A very comprehensive tour of downtown Lancaster as well as a visit to an Amish farm and bishop-approved creamery with delicious ice cream. A stop at a strawberry stand as well as a dip of ice cream were included in the tour price. Guide was very knowledgeable! Jim and Rich June 7, 2019
