Such a great tour! We started off at an organic dairy farm then a leather craftsman and then to an Amish home with super nice people as hosts Kent our guide was made to do this tour. He is very knowledgeable about the Amish way of life and answered all our questions
Well worth the tour!

This was an incredible and in depth tour of Amish country. Would highly recommend it to anyone! We got to tour a private home, a working dairy farm and a working goods center. Truly a wonderful experience.
Highlight of our vacation.
Cassandra_H, Jun 2023
Beth was an awesome guide with lots of information to share. She obviously has built strong relationships with the Amish families she introduced us to, and her tour guests benefit from this mutual respect. The dairy farm and leather shop stops were great, but the opportunity to sit with an Amish couple to just learn about their customs and traditions was the highlight of our entire vacation. Thank you to Beth and all the Amish who welcomed us warmly and taught us so much!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you very much for your great feedback. The "home visit" part of the VIP Tour is often a highlight for visitors.
Really worth while.

The extensive amount of knowledge gained about the Amish way of life. The sincerity of the AMISH people we met, and the values the instilled in their children
The dairy farm experience...
Clark_F, Aug 2022
The dairy farm experience gave insight into the Amish communities providing to our food supply. The home visit was very informative and gave much insight into the history and beliefs of the Amish community. Our guide Beth was very knowledgeable and definitely enhanced the experience.

If you want an up close and personal experience meeting and greeting with Amish people, this is the tour for you. Get to where the big busses don’t take you. And don’t go where the big buses go. This is not a tourist experience. It is a private experience.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thanks for joining us on the VIP tour. We're so glad you did. We never take more than 14 people on this tour, so everyone will have the chance to interact with the Amish hosts.

Visit in person with Amish
Steven_T, Jul 2021
So fun and informative. Just what we were looking for! Jim was kind and never rushed us. Our favorite part was the sit down talk with an Amish couple. This was awesome and we would highly recommend this!
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Everyone loves this tour - and it is often hard for our guides to get people out of the last stop when it is time to go. Jim certainly has a great knack for knowing how to wrap up the visit without rushing anyone.
Well worth the time!!
