Definitely the best way to see the countryside and learn about the Amish way of living! Our guide, Andy, was knowledgeable and friendly. We had a small group so makes the trip even more personal. Andy stopped at a number of places including the best ice cream shop! Our coupe had some mechanical problems half way through the trip but he was quick to get help and replace it with another one. Highly recommend this tour as it's a fun way to see what beautiful Lancaster has to offer!…

Brian was one of the best tour guides I’ve ever experienced. Easy to get along with, funny, and very knowledgeable. He even did a little mini photoshoot for my wife and I on the first covered bridge which was awesome! Next time we are in town we will definitely be doing another tour and I hope Brian will be our guide again.…

We did the Bird-in-Hand tour. The scenery alone made the experience worthwhile. It was summer time and very hot, but that's the way I like it. Cruising in a coup with the cooling wind flowing through my hair was bliss. The little Amish kids love to wave at you. There were several stops along the tour most of which were food related (pretzels, ice cream, popcorn). Couple of farms too, so expect to get your shoes and hands a bit dirty. I went with a friend visiting from Japan and seeing the Amish was an enjoyable culture shock for her. I highly recommend the coup if going as a couple since one of you as free to take pictures. Unfortunately, the coup has no storage space, so pack lightly. Coup is also easier to ride compare to the scooter. There was one girl in our group who crashed her scooter into a small retaining wall on someone's yard, and for whatever dumb reason, always turned into the left lane when making turns. Once almost crashing into an incoming pick-up truck, forcing her to veer completely off the road. Luckily the accidents were not too serious. Tour guide was too far ahead to even notice, but don't be like this girl! If you don't feel comfortable after the parking-lot practice, speak up! Staff was very kind and helpful. Even gave us extra bottles of water since it was so hot. Regarding COVID protocols, if I remember correctly masks were not required (we're outside and on a scooter most of the time anyways), but the staff and guests we were with were kind enough to social distance. Tour guide was kind enough to share her hand sanitizer with us. I arrived a bit early and saw that the staff did in fact wipe down the scooters used on the previous tour. And if it matters to you, be mindful that this part of the state is Trump country. I was a little disappointed there wasn't much learning about or interacting with some Amish folk, but the company doesn't advertise this as an educational tour so I can't knock em' for that. If I'm ever in the area again, I would love to try one of the other tours.…

The guides we're friendly, helpful and fun. It was truly the best way to see the beauty of the farmland.
The scenery was beautiful. We were glad we had a blanket and gloves but we're very comfortable in the Scoot Coupe.
