What a great behind the scenes tour. Tour guide was Mennonite, the cost was $53 and we gave a $10 tip at the end, he was knowledgeable & friendly. He knew all the roads, homes, history & great places to stop. We visited farms, wood working & quilt shops. It was so cool, even our 8 & 13 year old... More

Be sure to see the 17 minute film as it is rich in information about the Mennonites. Also, you are welcome to speak with the staff, ask questions and receive you'll receive answers. We learned so much about the Mennonites and their culture.

We booked a personal tour through the Mennonite Information Center but prior to that we wandered through the building and learned a lot about the Mennonite's that we weren't aware of. At the appointed time we met our Guide Lois who is Mennonite and guided us on a 2 hour tour from the back seat of our car, she gave... More

In our opinion, this is the best way to see Amish Country and learn about their customs. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had a great two hours with her.

There are a number of options to visit the same sites in this area with different operators. We were recommended this one by friends who live in Virginia and had visited previously. With this service you take a guide out in your vehicle and he or she directs you to various places and gives you the history and talks about... More

We visited in Oct 16 and saw the free introductory film which was about the origin of the Mennonites and the Amish. We then went on a tour with the guide in our car for 2 hours ($53 usd). It was a great tour and very informative.

This is a great place to get information and history of the Mennonite community. They also house the temple as described in the Old Testament.

I brought my family here over 11 years ago before the birth of my son and really enjoyed it. I decided to bring him and was not disappointed. The place had not changed at all. No real improvements or upgrades but that did not detract from the experience. The tour was very informative and I would recommend it to anyone... More
