Tour guides were very knowledgeable. BBQ house at Amish Experience location was fantastic. Very enjoyable even with the rain. shuttle to/from hotel to Train station was the most difficult part. Identification stickers provided did not stick (upset shuttle driver on return). shuttle taking to train was better - she was helpful.

My tour was great, well organised and very informative. I would have liked an extra hour to have a buggy ride and talk more with an Amish local. The countryside is beautiful and people are genuinely friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Although there was quite a bit of travelling, this all happened without a hitch. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the train station. We had a bit of a wait before we boarded the train but were met at the station by a taxi that took us to the Amish area. Here we enjoyed the movie, Jacob's Choice and found it very interesting and informative. The tour through the Amish house was also interesting. Lunch was good, however the advertised Amish feast is no longer available. Amish food or Lancaster county food can be ordered from the menu, but there is no all you can eat lunch to sample Amish food as advertised on the brochure.
The shuttle bus took us driving along back roads around the area, pointing out Amish houses and farms. We saw quite a few Amish people along the way and called in to one home where crafts are sold.
The shuttle returned us to the train station in good time to catch the train back to Philadelphia where we were met by another shuttle driver who dropped us back to the hotel.
We really enjoyed the trip and had a great day!

Loved the tour. It took us to all the sites of interest. Unfortunately, two days not enough time to see everything. We are from Florida and not used to so much walking and were with my mom. She was not inclined to get off the bus much. So the tour was mostly hop on.
Highlights: Reading terminal.

This tour was really interesting and worthwhile. It gives an insight into how the Amish live, then and now. We saw a film in an 'experiencial theatre' setting, a tour of a classroom and house, and then a great tour of the countryside with a very informative tour guide. I was recommend this tour. It is a different experience to visiting museums.

The attractions themselves were fascinating and well worth seeing. The difficulty we had was that the taxi that was meant to meet us at the train station and transport us to the attraction itself didn't arrive and we had to call for another one which didn't arrive until 30 minutes after we were meant to be picked up. The result was that the tight timing of seeing all of the aspects of the Amish Country Tour was upset and if it wasn't for the very good work of the staff at the Amish Experience Offices we would have missed out on the horse drawn buggy ride altogether. As it was that had to be truncated and so we didn't get a full appreciation of that aspect.
So the advice is: if the taxi sin't at the station when you arrive, call the taxi company immediately to get one there.
