Guided Amish Tour of Lancaster, Pennsylvania Dutch Country

Experience the Pennsylvania Amish firsthand in Lancaster County as part of our Lancaster Dutch Country Show Trip vacation package.  Situated in the southeast region of Pennsylvania is the core of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, home to the Amish, Mennonite and Brethren religious communities collectively known as the “Plain People.” Persecuted for their beliefs in their native country of Switzerland, the “Plain People” started to settle in Pennsylvania during the early 1700s and soon became known as “Dutch” (from “Deutsch”) because of the German dialects they were speaking. Today most Pennsylvania Dutch lead simple lives on farms. Many do not use electricity and most opt for horse-drawn buggies.
