The closest thing to the Mennonite experience: Let us take you throughout the Plain Community, among the Old Order Mennonites who inhabit the region. See how they live, and how their lifestyle has shaped the world around them.
We supply a bus & a local tour guide who have permission to go through farms & down buggy lanes. Your own guide starts you with a video and Q&A about Mennonites & Amish, plus 90min on the road to see your choice of sites and one stop...and get a snack that really "schmecks gut"!
