From the Rhineland and Palatinate of Germany came great migrations of settlers to Pennsylvania in the 18th century. Because they retained their customs, speech and developed beautiful and bountiful farms, the Pennsylvania Dutch country is one of the state's greatest tourist attractions. There are all degrees of conservatism among the descendants of German immigrants and they all share tremendous vigor, family devotion, love of the Bible and a belief in thrift and hard work. You tour will take you through the heart of Amish Country as you're immersed in their simplistic lifestyle with an up close look at their daily lives. Step back in time and join friends and family on this charming and scrumptious tour that celebrates the simpler pleasures in life!

When you board the coach this morning you are on your way to another country: Amish Country! Our first destination on our adventure is the Mount Hope Estate & Winery where you will indulge in a dinner, tour and tasting. Over the course of 208 years, Mount Hope Estate and Winery, located in Northern Lancaster County has grown from a private residence to a flourishing historic estate featuring spectacular entertainment. Mount Hope Estate is Pennsylvania's original winery, brewery and cidery, they specialize in the production of hand-crafted Mount Hope Wines, Swashbuckler Beers and Lancaster County Ciders. We will then continue on to our overnight accommodations at the Country Inn of Lancaster (717-393-3413) and you will be on your own for the rest of the evening.

A buffet breakfast is included at the hotel this morning. A local guide will then join us for a 3 hour Amish Farmlands tour. Our guide will give us detailed "inside information" on Lancaster County's Amish; we'll learn about their history, religion, customs and lifestyle. Pass by several one room schoolhouses which are still being used today by the Amish children. Maybe we'll be lucky enough to see the Amish people working in the fields or horse and buggies clip-clopping down the roads. After touring through the Amish farmlands we will enjoy lunch (included) in an Amish home. Look forward to a family style meal, homemade bread, and delicious homemade desserts. We will dine with Sam Lapp and his sons while Ruth and the girls serve us the family style meal. Yes, the family will be dining with us! As we get ready to return home we will make one last exciting stop at Kitchen Kettle Village where you'll find over 40 shops jammed full of Lancaster's simple pleasures. Sample fresh jams, stroll over to the Bake Shop, scoot over to the Jam & Relish Kitchen and try their sweet and savory selections. Once you’ve stocked up on all your goodies we will depart for home at 3pm with an approximate arrival in the Capital District around 10pm. One stop each way.
