My girlfriend and I were visiting the area and wanted to go on an authentic Amish tour while also being respectful of the Amish people. Kathy of Old Order Amish Tours certainly delivered. You begin by following Kathy in your vehicle as she takes you on a scenic tour of the area. You communicate with her via walkie-talkie as she tells you all about the history of the Old Order Amish and a wealth of other information. She really knows her stuff. After, you visit a working Old Order Amish farm (Kathy has some sort of special relationship with the community in which she can bring visitors onto the site) where you get to see how the Old Order Amish live and also have an opportunity to purchase some of their goods (we bought some beautiful knitted goods). The whole tour lasts about a an hour and a half and was $50 for the two of us--very reasonable for all the sites we were able to see and how much we learned.
Kathy also helped us plan the rest of our day, including where to go for some authentic PA Dutch cooking.
I don't ususally take the time to write online reviews but I was so impressed with Old Order Amish Tours that I just had to. If you are in the area and are looking for an authentic and informative Amish tour, look no further than Old Order Amish Tours. Thanks again Kathy!
