Amish Experience / Amish Country Tours
Amish Country Tours (Dutchland Tours, Inc.) is the only company with certified guides providing tours in Lancaster County for over 50 years. The Amish Experience is located on the property of Plain & Fancy Farm, Lancaster's original family-style restaurant, on Route 340, a non-commercial AAA designated Scenic Cultural Byway, surrounded by Amish farms.
Our goal is for visitors to see the Amish not as saints or curiosities, but as our neighbors, as "real people." Interest in the "Amish Mafia" TV show has raised many questions and the Amish Farmlands Tour is a great way to truly understand the Amish way of life and separate fact from fiction. Our certified guides make every tour both educational and entertaining, respectful and insightful. Whenever possible, our 90-minute farmlands tours include a stop at an Amish property, perhaps a bake shop, roadside stand, or quilt shop on a farm, so that visitors can interact with the Amish. Combined with the acclaimed "Jacob's Choice" in the Amish Experience Theater, and the Amish Country Homestead & Schoolroom, the only Amish house tour in Lancaster County designated a "Heritage Site," this SuperSaver package is the ideal overview of Amish culture for visitors. Farmlands tours are always guided on a 14-passenger "mini-shuttle" for a more personal experience.
In addition, our exclusive Amish Visit-in-Person Tour, the only tour to be designated a Heritage Tour by the County of Lancaster, continues to run Monday, Wednesday, and Friday through November. Limited to 14 guests.
Online reservations are restricted to one to two days prior to tour date. During that "shut out" period, there may be "day of" tickets available. Call or email us for details.
GIFT CARDS for two adults for some tours are also available, valid for 2014, making a unique and special gift!
