Take an Ohio Amish Country Tour on your next Vacation

If you really want to get in touch with the Amish, take an Ohio Amish Country tour on your next vacation. Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast has their own tour bus and offer 2-hour and 4-hour back roads tours of Amish Country.  Being surrounded by Amish neighbors has helped the owners to learn about culture and customs in their area.  Guests will learn how the Amish live in church communities and what that means.  They will hear about education, weddings, funerals, how the Amish run a business without electricity, and more.  Both tours make stops along the route so that you have the opportunity to shop at Amish-owned businesses.  Whether you like unique and unusual crafts and furniture, or you need to purchase a gift, you are sure so find something in the area.  The Amish culture tours are offered throughout the week and by appointment.   One guest told us that she thought that everyone should start their vacation with a 2-hour tour because it was so informative.  Another said, "We truly enjoyed the 2 hour bus tour with Herb, what a wonderful tour guide with so much knowledge about the Amish."
There are also specialty tours such as wine tasting weekends.  For more information on dates and itineraries be sure to check out their website.
