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 29 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.

    This was such an interesting tour with a balance of Lancaster history, city sites, Amish country views and personal narratives. The guides knowledge and connection to the area and people was the highlight! He really made the time seem like you were visiting with friends. I have many memories of the tour – the market, underground railroad archeological dig and covered bridge in the country. Mainly, the visits at the Amish farm and ice cream shop were just what everyone should experience! Thanks!

    This tour is great! Phil gave us a brief walking city tour with fascinating information. We then drove to the countryside, stopping for photos at a covered bridge and onto an Amish farm and dairy. Phil shared his knowledge and insight about the Amish. He encouraged questions which he readily answered. The farm visit was great and the ice cream was delicious! We went back and purchased cheese and other items available to us.

    This was a truly excellent tour. Our tour guide/owner was very well versed in the history of Lancaster. During the walking tour of the city he described the history of many interesting locations and historical figures . One of the more unique items that he showed us was an ongoing archaeological dig that was under an existing city building. We then ventured into the countryside, where Phil took us to a Creamery, covered bridge and a family (who he knew) who had a woodworking business as their main source of income. The ‘real life’ aspects of many of these things was very eye opening. Phil provided a detailed discussion of what was acceptable and expected from the Amish people. Great job Phil!

    Enjoyed this tour so much! Our tour guide was so in touch with the Lancaster culture and the Amish
    community. From The Market in downtown Lancaster to the Amish ice cream store and Amos’
    birdhouses, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Would recommend to young and old alike.

    Everyone has taken a chance on signing up for a tour not knowing exactly how it would turn out. THIS tour was a true blessing and we couldn’t have been more pleased that this was the tour we chose! Owner Phil was very informative about Amish life and made the tour very personal. As part of the tour, we had the pleasure of sharing a luscious lunch at an Amish home which was a true blessing. Phil went out of his way to make this, our first, trip to Lancaster, such a wonderful experience. If you are looking for a true look into the Amish way of life and to see specific areas that you may never find on your own, do yourself a favor and book a tour with loKal Experiences!
    You won’t regret it!
