With advance reservation, groups comprised of 10 or more people can enjoy a delicious family-style meal served in a conservative Mennonite home, and learn about the wonders of the Amish and Mennonite cultures. Our speaker can give your party a first hand sense of the family values, hard work ethic and unpretentious lifestyles of these two groups. Our guide meets your group at the village welcome center, and guides your vehicles through the countryside to your destination. Orientation can be customized to fit an area of interest.
