We will then take a delightful stroll through the beautiful streets and byways of downtown Lancaster. You will discover a city of today, steeped in the history and traditions of over 250 years of America’s colorful and exciting past. We will then visit the oldest settlement in Lancaster County, followed by a trip to one of our 19 remaining covered bridges, a visit to an Amish creamery where you’ll get to choose from more than a dozen homemade ice cream varieties, a stop at a scenic looking spot for pictures, and wrapping up with a tour of an Amish farm where you can feed bottle-feed calves and milk cows by hand among interacting with many other types of farm animals.

    We very much enjoyed the tour. We would have missed out on many authentic experiences had it not been for Phil. He gave us the context and history needed to have a wonderful experience.

    Phil was a gracious host, knowledgeable and friendly. We walked around Lancaster and then went out into the countryside. It was fun exploring a farm and its animals and sampling homemade ice cream. A great time!

    Do not miss this tour! Phil is an amazing host and tour guide and a very kind and friendly guy! He is very knowledgeable about the history of Lancaster and showed us many interesting and historical spots on the downtown portion of the tour. Our visit to Central Market was fascinating! Phil is also very friendly with the local Amish & Mennonite communities and was therefore able to take us to several working farms where we met wonderful families, had many hands-on experiences with animals, and saw many different types of crops growing. We loved the stop at the dairy farm, where we sampled the most amazing ice cream! Phil drove us around in his very comfortable SUV and it was so fun taking in all of the beautiful countryside and even a covered bridge! Would recommended this tour to anyone who has 3 hours available during a morning in beautiful Lancaster!

    My wife and I had a great experience with Phil on our Lancaster, Amish tour. Phil is very knowledgeable on the area and culture of the Amish. We got to experience Central Market where a lot of Amish sell the items they have grown and had a very informative walking tour of the town of Lancaster and learned it historical background. We then visited an Amish farm which had a creamy and from there went to another Amish farm where we had the opportunity to see and hold young calves, goat, pigs and chickens. We also experienced tobacco hanging to dry in the tobacco barn. Last we visited an Amish greenhouse. Phil was a great guide and we highly recommend the experience as part of your Lancaster visit. Thank you Phil.

    We had a great time on our 2 hour tour with Phil learning about the Amish. In the 2 hour span we did a lot of things- we got to see the Central Market (with a really cool spot above it that we could look down and see all the commotion of the people below), we went to 2 farms, got to pet a lot of animals, and even got to hold a baby pig. We even got to eat ice cream straight from one of the farms. Other than learning about the culture of the Amish with Phil, he also recommended we check out the restaurant Kaite’s Kitchen when we finished up the tour. It was a great spot with great food, and the place is even run by the Amish! It was great learning more about their perspective on life and how they go about living in today’s world. Phil was a nice guy and I would recommend this tour if you are like us, and like seeing things quickly and moving on to the next thing.
