Authentic Amish Tours
Your social network to the Amish!
Our goal is to have you experience authentic Amish life. There will be opportunities to interact personally with the Amish as we meet them at home and work. Depending upon availability, the tour includes a two-room school house, organic farm market, housewares shop, fabric, bakery, jam and jelly businesses, and harness shop. Along the way you will see an Amish cemetery, Amish homes, the Doty house, pulley clothes lines, children at play, farmers in the field, buggies coming and going, and beautiful back road country scenery with Amish go-cart races if we're lucky! It is truly an authentic experience!
We suggest an overnight weekend to attend Friday Amish benefit school auctions and Saturday horse sales during the summer months.
Get first-hand information about the Amish from some of our tour guides who were once Amish providing authentic information.
