Family
We are a family of five and because of covid, we stayed in our own car with Mike (our tour guide) connected on the phone with bluetooth speaker on, so everybody could listen and ask questions. It worked well for us. We visited an Amish family and our host was Sarah Beiler. She cooked a delicious lunch comprised of roasted chicken (the best roast chicken I've ever had), meat loafs, home-grown peas, corn and mashed potato with gravy. Everybody enjoyed the lunch and had great conversation with Sarah about their life during the pandemic, schooling, etc. and she was greatly interested in learning about us too. Sarah played a hymn with harmonica (a very good player!) too. Sarah runs a guesthouse that is located in a separate building which contained two bedrooms and a bathroom that were very clean. After lunch Mike took us to various historic sites of importance in Amish and Mennonnite community which was very entertaining. Mike also took us to the farm where the movie Witness was filmed in 1983 which was cool. Mike grew up in the Amish country so he was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a great deal about Amish way of life. Overall it was a great tour and well worth the time.

We met our tour guide Mike at the Visitors Center. Due to Covid we traveled in our individual cars he called us on our cell phone as we traveled and described points of interest during our way to the Amish Farm. Once there we were greeted by Sarah (hope I spelled her name correctly) as soon as we walked in the smell of the feast that was waiting ahead was to die for. The food was wonderful and plenty (thought about asking for a take home bag but felt embarrassed so I didn't). Sarah was the ultimate host spoke about their life on the farm, traditions, family and today's life both for them and us. Mike and Sarah thank you for such a wonderful experience.

This was a very enjoyable morning for myself, my husband, and our daughter. We visited Sara and her children for lunch. She was very welcoming and prepared a delicious meal for us. Her three children were very helpful and were easy to fall in love with. I do wish there had been a bit more time to spend with the family as it seemed that as soon as we sat down and ate it was time to leave. Sara did entertain us with a song on her harmonica and she led us in singing. I also wish we could have stopped and taken some photos at the covered bridge on the way to the home. I only gave it a four because it seemed rushed and the guide even stated he had another group waiting on him. However, he was very knowledgeable of the area.

My husband and I went on this tour last week. To make it covid safe, we drove our car and connected with Mike's phone via our Bluetooth. He took us on a short drive through some of the highlights of Lancaster on our way to Sarah's house for lunch.

We were greeted by our hostess and a spread for a king. She made the best fried chicken I have ever had. Delicious meatloaf, mashed potatoes, vegetables, homemade bread, apple pie and ice cream. Sarah and Mike ate with us and Sarah answered many questions about Amish life.

As indicated in other reviews, she did play the harmonica for us and is quite talented. They have a small farm and apparently in better weather, she has a massive garden.

We would definitely do this for again. Sarah was a wonderful hostess and Mike was a terrific tour guide.

Everything was our favorite. There was not one thing . Every part was wonderful. The food was delicious and well prepared by the family. This family was so hospitable and welcoming into their home. As a bonus, the girls sang beautifully and their mom played the harmonica. This was a memorable experience.

Before the tour, Annamarie who is Phil’s wife, went out of her way to arrange a dinner for us with an Amish family, even though they didn’t have any scheduled that day. She was very kind and communicative!

Phil took us on the Experience Tour, he was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the Amish people, having grown up in the Lancaster county himself. He showed us around to all of the most important sights in the Lancaster town first, before showing us around the countryside where the Amish live. In a short period of time he showed us many places, many of which we wouldn’t have known about without his guidance.

He even bought us some delicious home made ice cream which was just so delicious! And we went to an Amish home where the young boy made his own bird houses!

After the Experience tour we then went on a second tour with Mike to have dinner with the Amish family. Mike had a lot of insider knowledge which was very informative and interesting. We had a meal at Sarah’s home, who is an Amish farmer. The meal was made from produce that their family had grown themselves, the flavour was amazing and the food was very fresh. Sarah even played the harmonica which was absolutely delightful!

All of this was only possible because their team are all locals who have grown up in the area, and they’ve won the respect of a lot of the Amish people who we visited. I admire the fact that they’ve grown their business with a spirit of kindness and integrity. I’m so glad we went on their tour instead of the other ones which just seemed a lot more touristy. This tour was 100% authentic, and deserved a positive review!

This was a great experience for our family. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. We saw a few local landmarks and headed to the home of an Amish family for lunch. It was a delicious homemade meal and we had a friendly group. The mother of the family and one of the older daughters ate with us and were happy to answer questions and tell us about their way of life. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. . .families, single people, couples, young and old would all have a memorable day.

Don't miss this opportunity - it was so informative and interesting and enjoyable. Mike was a premier tour guide. He provided local history of the area as well as specific information about the Amish culture. The family farm we toured was delightful - the food was delicious and plentiful and the family members so kind and friendly. We enjoyed seeing their farm (where "Witness" was filmed!) and hearing about their daily lives. This tour and meal experience was even better than anticipated - outstanding!

This was a great event and gave a really good insight into the Amish life and culture. Our tour guide Mike grew up in Lancaster and obviously had great rapport with the host family. Aaron and Barbie were wonderful along with their 8 children. The meal she prepared for us was a true feast with three main courses, three sides, salad, fresh rolls and an amazing chocolate lava cake and ice cream. Would 100% recommend this tour!
