  • We decided to take the bus tour. There were 6 of us, 2 adults and 4 older kids. Our guide was very good. He is a local born and raised Mennonite with great insight into the local community. Our tour took almost 2 hours and was very interesting and worth the cost. He gave us a choice of 2 stops and the group chose an Amish farm stand that was very good. We all bought items at the stop and prices were very reasonable. When we got back to the Amish Village, we had a look around the attraction (included with the bus ride), it was good also. Few shops and some animals and other Amish artifacts. I would recommend.
  • So much fun!! Come as a group or go alone! The walking tour is fun and informative! Live animals, food, artifacts. Can also take the bus tour to see a real working Amish farm and other communities. Lots of parking, easy off/on.
  • Life without TV, Mobile, Electricity, Vehicles and all amenities provided in this modern world is beyond imagination. But there is this community of people who have been living in this posh area of Pennsylvania without all this dedicatedly since decades. They r mainly farmers, growing their own crop, meat, and all other food items. Women stitch the clothes for the whole family. They ride horses, travel in buggies, live a simple life staying away from any kind of limelight.A Must visit place for all.
  • The tour of the house was with an informative guide - I got to learn all about the courtship process and the different signals the Amish send with their clothing. There was a good selection of Amish-modified things (including a gas lamp on wheels and an air powered mixer). Beyond the house, there is a good collection of buildings (the school house is worth a visit) and various buggies you can sit in. Lots of farm animals (goats, pigs, horses, mules, sheep, chickens etc.) and a nice set of crops (maize, tobacco) with explanations of how it is grown and why.
  • I expected to see more Amish life in general, not just agriculture sites. In general, a nice ride on a bus with great guide, my kids had a great time feeding animals at the village farm.
