Escape the hustle & bustle of the 21st century… visit Amish Country! Our three-part tour will give you an authentic glimpse inside the Amish Community.
–Join us for a tour inside our 1805 farmhouse, which was last occupied by an Amish family. Your guide will explain the history, customs, clothing, and culture as you visit the various rooms of the home.
–Travel through the Amish countryside in our 14-passenger mini-buses. Keep your camera ready as you see Amish schoolhouses, buggies, barns, farms, historic homes, and beautiful farmland vistas.
— Meet with the Amish owners and purchase handmade souvenirs at quaint Amish stores along the way. (when available, no Sundays or Amish holidays.)
–Enjoy a self-guided visit on our historic farm. Our 15-acre farm is home to an authentic Amish one-room school, Amish scooters and 12 different types of animals. We have various artisans and Amish craftsmen on our farm, seasonally.
Have you ever wanted to go inside an Amish home? Or try their amazing baked goods? This tour is for you! Take a step back from the stress of the holidays, slow down and let us take you on a relaxing but festive journey. We will visit three authentic Amish kitchens to sample homemade Christmas cookies. You’ll leave with an appreciation of another culture along with recipes and cookies to take home and enjoy.
It’s the season for family fun and cookies! Dad doesn’t need a new tie and mom doesn’t want another gift card. Give the gift of experience and bring your loved ones on our Amish Christmas Cookie Tour.
Content rich and carefully researched, you will get an insider’s pass to the past, with stories and context that bring the city alive and guarantee an experience unavailable anywhere else. We’ll explore the rich and fascinating history of our beautiful city and learn the out-sized roll our small city played in the birth and growth of America as you stroll through charming streets and alleys and begin to understand the building blocks that take us to the present day.
Sound great? Well there is still much more.
During our old city history walk, we will whet our whistle at some of Lancaster’s finest craft beer establishments – and the history isn’t over. You will learn how much of our colorful past is tied to beer. From the Revolutionary War to 19th century Lager Breweries to amazing tales of prohibition ingenuity, the beer flowing through the taps comes from the present day but reaches back across the last two centuries – and it’s delicious!
This is a unique and comprehensive look into the Amish way of life. You’ll be getting access to several farms and properties that are not available to the public or on any other tour. Your guide’s knowledge of the Amish is extensive and the access you will get is the result of our personal relationships with the Amish families.
All of our guides have individual and unique ties to the Amish community and have always enjoyed showing off the “true” Lancaster County. This rich, immersive experience is personally designed to give you a rare window into the authentic Amish culture. Every meal is an amazing experience!

This all-inclusive tour runs rain or shines during the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Sorry, no Winter tours (the guide is not a fan of the cold). Looking forward to meeting you!
Many visitors to Lancaster seek out meaningful personal contact with the Amish community. Imagine visiting three Amish properties where our longstanding relationships allow you to become their guests during your stay. This exclusive tour is limited to 14 guests, and provides the rare opportunity to meet and talk to various Amish where they live and work. The three stops: Visit an Amish farm at milking time, go behind-the-scenes with an Amish craftsman, and then sit and chat with an Amish family right in their home.
If you are looking for a true “experience” this is the tour for you. You won’t see tourists – or tour buses for the entire excursion. We visit and experience the real and remote areas of Lancaster County that only locals know, well off the beaten path of a typical PA Dutch Country tour. Our groups are never larger than 14 people and we provide inside access and information not known to the public through relationships we have with the Amish and Mennonites here in Lancaster. Our guides have Amish relatives, Mennonite roots, and are deeply connected to many people here in the county with a wealth of knowledge and information. This may not be the cheapest experience, but the access and one-to-one attention you’ll get is priceless. We even stop on real Amish farms that the public doesn’t have access to (not listed on the itinerary). We look forward to introducing you to new cultures among many other gems and informative nuggets you’ll get from this experience!
I am a Lancaster native, former professional baker and committed food lover who can’t wait to share some of the hidden culinary gems of Lancaster City! My passion is food and hosting/meeting new people. We will visit unique and varied “off the beaten path” downtown purveyors on this door to door walking tour, where you’ll get extra access and attention from owners and operators. Ask your questions and enjoy generous samples! Take home goodies are included in the price of the tour, AND a wealth of history about the city.
Come climb one of Pennsylvania’s best crag and let our certified climbing guides handle the rest! Never climbed before? No problem! We want to provide you the opportunity to discover something new about the world and yourself. Our team will capture your experience on camera and send you all the photos so you can enjoy your time!
