We were guided very sufficiently on what to do in Lancaster. The staff was very accommodating; she even made the phone call to make sure that the restaurant was open as it was an Amish holiday.

Booked the 2 hour guided tour and what a good decision that was. You will see and do so much more with a guide in 2 hours than you would ever do driving around the area hit and miss. Melba was our guide and she...More
