Amish Country is a great place to visit with a group! Whether you operate a motor coach tour from outside the area or are looking for a local tour operator that can show your group the very best of Amish Country, we have the resources to help create a great itinerary that will leave everyone smiling.
We recommend that motor coach operators contact the Holmes County Chamber at 330-674-3975 or firstname.lastname@example.org for recommendations on itineraries and working with local partners. Visiting Amish businesses can require special instruction, which we are well equipped to provide.
