The entire tour was very educational. Our tour guide was great! Those straight back bench seats in the theater gotta go! You are sitting on a downward angle with no place for your body to go. I felt very uncomfortable!

Loved everything about this amish experience!The film,jacobs choice,gave an inside look into the life of an amish family & the human decisions that they are faced with.It also gave a historical back round ,which was very interesting.The film was shown in a barn setting,which also added to the experience.The film was then followed by a guided tour of the actual homestead.The tour guide was very informative.I suggest this experience to anyone!It really makes you think about the world we live in.There was also a fantastic gift shop on the premises,along with a couple amish-run stores.We also ate at the restaurant on the premises.If you decide to eat there,choose the family style sit down meal over choosing the menu.You'll be able to try all the varieties of food and will meet some really interesting people.We ended up with some new friends.There is also a buggy ride available on the premises.That was also a worthwhile trip.It took you right onto an amish farm.Let's me just put it this way,we were thinking we would be done with this experience in a couple hours.Well,we were there for 6 hours!We don't regret a thing!

Just saw the sound of music yesterday--beautiful production! The food is o.K, but the show is the reason for being there. Some drinks are not included in the ticket price, and the soup seemed to be an add-on, which i wasn't thrilled about. For the bigger tables it is family style and a bit crowded. It is better to sit in the fron of each section (2 rows per section). Looked like a lot of bus groups occupied the front two sections. Back row seats aren't too bad. For the show--maria was outstanding. I've seen this production many times, and she is one of the bets maria's i've seen. Great presence and great voice. The children are wonderful--liesel was great, and the little blonde gretl was a joy to watch. Mother abbess was very, very good and had a very powerful voice. Ducth apple has picked a great show and produced a wonderful production. Many thanks!
