What you can expect
Enjoy first-hand insight into the lives of the Amish community that resides in the beautiful Lancaster county of Pennsylvania. Travel by private car through the countryside with your own guide and visit local bakeries, craft stores, and an absorbing museum dedicated to Amish life.
Your driver picks you up directly from your Philadelphia hotel, meaning you can sit back in comfort and enjoy the cityscape changing gradually into rolling hills and lush-green countryside.
Drive along the small country roads that make their way through the farmland, and start to appreciate the rural way of life of the Amish people, only 50 miles or so from the bustling city. Enjoy a visit to the Amish Village Museum and watch a 40-minute documentary movie about growing up as an Amish boy. You can take a buggy ride of your own desired length to get a feel for how the community gets around.
Pay a visit to a local bakery and browse some of the local craft stores and quilt shops to perhaps pick up a souvenir of your experience, before making your way back to Philadelphia.
