Amish Soft Adventure Heritage Tour - Niagara Falls USA (Freedom Seekers)

...Warning - This Tour was designed for the true Experiential Tourist Adventurer!!

The busier our lives get - the more fascinating the Amish become. The Plain People - as they are sometimes called - enjoy full and rich lives despite lacking most of the modern conveniences we take for granted. While most of us wouldn't want to join their world forever - traveling in Amish Country gives visitors the chance to sample the simplicity and harmony of an earlier era. Their origins began with the Anabaptist reform movement in Switzerland circa 1525. About 250 - 000 Amish live in the United States. While traditionally they've been farmers - many now operate small businesses ranging from furniture making and baking to quilting and market gardening. This tour embeds the visitor squarely in the heart of Amish country in the picturesque Conewango Valley in NY’s Southern Tier where they will have a chance to experience food - culture and crafts. So slow down and recharge while touring Amish Country with us. An Amish continental Breakfast & Lunch is Included
