Welcome to Eden Resort and Suites, BW Premier Collection!
Many visitors to Lancaster seek out meaningful personal contact with the Amish community. Imagine visiting three Amish properties where our longstanding relationships allow you to become their guests during your stay. This exclusive tour is limited to 14 guests, and provides the rare opportunity to meet and talk to various Amish where they live and work. The three stops: Visit an Amish farm at milking time, go behind-the-scenes with an Amish craftsman, and then sit and chat with an Amish family right in their home.
Join our talented storyteller at Penn Square's visitors center, where you will begin your journey through historic Lancaster. Don't forget there will be food!This 3-hour walk through Lancaster's downtown showcases this city's diverse culture offering delicious food samples from several local family-owned eateries. No chain restaurants on this tour.This all-inclusive tour runs rain or shines during the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Sorry, no Winter tours (the guide is not a fan of the cold). Looking forward to meeting you!
If you are looking for a true "experience" this is the tour for you. You won't see tourists - or tour buses for the entire excursion. We visit and experience the real and remote areas of Lancaster County that only locals know, well off the beaten path of a typical PA Dutch Country tour. Our groups are never larger than 14 people and we provide inside access and information not known to the public through relationships we have with the Amish and Mennonites here in Lancaster. Our guides have Amish relatives, Mennonite roots, and are deeply connected to many people here in the county with a wealth of knowledge and information. This may not be the cheapest experience, but the access and one-to-one attention you'll get is priceless. We even stop on real Amish farms that the public doesn't have access to (not listed on the itinerary). We look forward to introducing you to new cultures among many other gems and informative nuggets you'll get from this experience!
Content rich and carefully researched, you will get an insider's pass to the past, with stories and context that bring the city alive and guarantee an experience unavailable anywhere else. We’ll explore the rich and fascinating history of our beautiful city and learn the out-sized roll our small city played in the birth and growth of America as you stroll through charming streets and alleys and begin to understand the building blocks that take us to the present day. Sound great? Well there is still much more. After our old city history walk, we will whet our whistle at some of Lancaster’s finest craft beer establishments – and the history isn’t over. You will learn how much of our colorful past is tied to beer. From the Revolutionary War to 19th century Lager Breweries to amazing tales of prohibition ingenuity, the beer flowing through the taps comes from the present day but reaches back across the last two centuries - and it's delicious!
Experience historic sites while traveling the pathways of the Underground Railroad in Lancaster County across river valleys, farmland, cities and small towns. Located just north of the famed Mason-Dixon Line, Lancaster County was a magnet for freedom seekers due to its network of religiously-inspired Abolitionists, free African Americans and white sympathizers, including civil rights pioneer, US Congressman Thaddeus Stevens (1792-1868). Be inspired by a professional historian and storyteller who brings alive this little-known yet significant history from the years following the American Revolution to the outbreak of the Civil War. Gain new perspectives on social issues in America today.
