We enjoyed meeting the Amish wife and wished we could communicate more with the children. We bought items from Emma such as her cookbook and homemade peanut butter-very nice addition to our tour.

Thanks for the review! Happy to hear you enjoyed the meal and appreciated the information. It is a little difficult to have conversation with young Amish children since they don't speak much English before they go to school, and her oldest is just starting school this year.

Our authentic Amish meal was a wonderful inside peek at the Amish culture. Our hostess Emma served a fabulous meal and we loved chatting with her 2 young sons. Guests at the table included a Swedish family and many others from across the US. Dale, our tour guide was a true local, providing local history and good laughs! I highly recommend this tour.

Our tour bus driver was knowledgeable and friendly. He knew our name and where we were from before we even introduced ourselves. After a very educational 45 min ride to reach our destination, we were introduced to the lovely family that hosted us for lunch. The lunch was wonderful and obviously prepared with great care. Our hostess was warm and did not mind our questions. With full tummy's we were then able to explore the barn and horse stable where one of the daughters showed us the family buggy and explained its use. This was a wonderful experience. One I would certainty recommend and experience again.

Delish meal with a nice family on a sunny day
Yuliya_S

This was truly one of the nicest experiences I’ve had! Starting with the tour, our guide Mike was very knowledgeable and open to answer all and any questions we had for him. He offered lots of interesting information about the many aspects of the Amish history, community and lifestyle. Thank you Mike! Once we were done with the tour, we arrived to our destination and met by a very welcoming Amish family and their cute dog. The house is beautiful and sunny which added to the already friendly atmosphere. The meal served was delicious consisting of potatoes, meat loaf, sting beans and candied beets. Followed by dessert which like the meal was delicious. It was a pleasure to talk to the host’s two daughters Ana and Marian, they were very lively and open. They introduced us to their animals and answered more questions about school, friends and ways they spend their free time. Although I felt a bit shy, the family’s casual and friendly energy really helped to soften the vibe and make us feel comfortable. Overall this was great and I will definitely be back for another tour and family visit.. so If you’re having doubts about booking this trip..don’t think twice, you will not regret it!

Heartwarming Experience!

This was one of the best experiences my husband and I had in Lancaster. Mike, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the Amish families in the area. On our way to the Amish home, he shared information about their way of life and history and answer many questions in a very honest and respectful way. The Amish hosting family was amazing. They let us feel like they were hosting friends and shared with us a bountiful home cooked meal. They cooked mash potatoes, beef, chicken, carrots. The dessert was some sort of chocolate cake with local made ice cream. Yummy! We also enjoyed watching their two little boys helping mom with serving the table and later playing around. The conversation with the Amish family was very casual and pleasant. What an enriching experience! This is a must do tour in Lancaster.
