We did the tour and it was quite informative. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and we learnt quite a bit about the culture and how things work in their little community. Well worth a visit.

It is quite different in many ways, but their “little community” has grown to be over 36,000 here in Lancaster and still growing. Amazing. Thank you for coming to see us and taking the time to write a review.

We loved our tour of the old Amish farmhouse with Arnie. It was great to learn more about the Amish culture and religion. The farmhouse tour was cheap and we got to explore the rest of the farm for however long we wanted.
