  • An interesting peek into the Amish culture and lifestyle. Loved both the home tour and bus trip. The guides are amazing. Plus the gift shop has a ton of interesting things to choose from. I, especially, liked the Amish quilts. A good place to see if you are in Lancaster or around.
  • It is very interesting. But it would seem that the Mennonite and the English are just making a lot of money off the Amish.... and don't be fooled by their stores, 90% of what's in them is made in China. The driving tour, though very informative and pleasant, soon became what felt like a Where's Waldo adventure just hunting Amish sighting... "and to your right an Amish house, and to you left an Amish horse buggy, and to your right an Amish person, cow, child, garden... I very quickly became very uncomfortable with this idea of pointing out and stopping and staring like we were on the Amish safari... and don't get me started on the service in the gift shop... OMG!
  • Small quiet little place with a touch of history. There isn't a lot to cover and you should be done in a couple of hours including all the pics you need. It is worth visiting once though to get to know the history of the Amish and how amazing their lifestyle is. Even though the replica village is pretty small, it is beautiful and on a good day, you should get some good pics. There is a small tour of a replica house in the beginning. You can then roam around the village which has some farm animals and carts etc.
  • They do tours of Amish and their lifestyle. At the end of the tour you have the option to go and explore their mini version of an Amish village located just behind the main tour business where different items are being sold. About the tour... Expect about 1h to 1h 45 min with one stop at a real Amish place (two or more stops would be ideal) throughout the outskirts of Strasbourg, PA. Our bus driver was entertaining, fun, savvy, and explained quite a lot of things we didn't know about Amish. So far this place gets a five star rating, and a couple of improvements would be to stop at multiple locations as well as giving a small map to enjoy Amish experience at its finest.
  • Little small. Quick tour. Neat old house. Grounds were good. The Amish Farmhouse by Target was better. Of the two I'd take the later. More to see and better tour.
