Tour Description:

Scenic farms, rolling hills and "Flowers" everywhere!  I LOVE this tour!  Right at the start, you'll be given a flower pot to put little gifts in that you'll receive through this tour ~ How Fun!!  But the best part is that you can relax, breathe deeply and listen to the clip-clop rhythm of horses and buggies as we take you back to a time when life was less complicated and much simpler - all the while enjoying the colors of "Spring in Bloom" at every turn ... Yes!!

Off we go to Holms County's Amish Country, home to the world's largest Amish community.  As we travel to Millersburg, our professional guide will share history and highlights along a network of back country roads.  At Lydia Troyer's mish home, we'll roll up our sleeves in her cooking kitchen and create some tasty treats to take home (if they make it home, that is!

 Highlights Include:

  • At Lydia Troyer's mish home, we'll roll up our sleeves in her cooking kitchen and create some tasty treats to take home (if they make it home, that is!)
  • Tour the historic Millersburg Victorian Home, showcasing Queen Anne-style décor.  It was seen on HGTV and is part of the Tulip Trail.
  • See over 7,000 tulips in bloom at Berlin Inn - walk around the lake and take pictures, if you like!

  • Hershberger Bakery and Farmers Market is one of our very favorite places to visit - their "fry pies" are famous and you will want to bring some home for sure!
  • Make and Take Cheese Balls at Dutch Creek Foods - a behind the scenes tour where they make pie fillings, salad dressings and more - fun!
  • Enjoy a meal at an Amish Farmstead - "Welcome to our Home" is the invitation from several friendly Amish families, and we will join one of them for a  delicious meal in their home.  Make your own Whoopie Pies to take home, too.
  • At the Garden Thyme, we'll meet an Amish owner who will talk to us about Amish planting techniques, and gift us with a seasonal potted plant.
  • A final stop at Broad Run Cheese House to sample their fine cheeses tops off this delightfully fun two-day respite from today's fast-paced life.  Don't miss your chance to experience it, you will be glad you did.

Up to 45 days prior to departure date, a full refund will be made. *Air and cruise tours, and some longer tours, may be different—be sure to ask for details when making your reservation. Tours including tickets also generally have earlier non-refundable dates. There are no refunds for cancellations made within 45 days prior to your departure date. However, we will do our best to recover as much as we can, but cannot guarantee anything. There will be no refund, for any reason, for a “no-show” on the day of the tour. A “Refund Protection Plan” is available at our office at a minimal cost. This insures you a full refund in case of a death or illness in the immediate family up to 24 hours before the tour departs. (It does require a doctor’s written note or copy of death notice.) On longer tours, we have a special insurance plan available if you are interested, and it will be sent to you with your confirmation. We encourage you to take advantage of these protection plans. The Refund Protection Plan does not apply to Day Trips, nor are there any refunds for Day Trips, with a few exceptions.

Gad-About Tours Inc. reserves the right to cancel any tour that has not reached a minimum number of reservations. We reserve the right to change tour prices and itinerary. Tours are prepared up to a year in advance and may be impacted by circumstances that arise which are beyond our control. We reserve the right to cancel or refuse service to anyone, in our sole discretion. We always avoid changes and cancellations if at all possible, as we realize the inconvenience to you, our valued customer.

All of our tours are by late-model, deluxe wide-body motorcoach. They are equipped with air-conditioning, reclining seats, public address system, VCR, and emergency restrooms. Our intent is for all overnight tours to be professionally escorted for your convenience. Upon occasion, in order to avoid canceling a trip with a low passenger count, our driver may serve both positions of driver and escort, and all are professionally trained to do so. All Fly Trips include airfare from Cleveland Airport , transfers and air taxes and fess (subject to increase until paid in full). You will drive yourself to the airport. Trip insurance is available, and will be sent to you upon making your reservation for your individual consideration.

Your lodging is included on all overnight tours. All hotels are AAA rated. We never use second-rate hotels, restaurants, or activities on any tour, to the best of our ability to make that determination. Payment of telephone calls, room service, and other incidentals at places of lodging are the responsibility of the customer.

One suitcase per person is included in the price of your tour. You are also permitted a carry-on, which is your responsibility. Additional luggage may be transported at the cost of $5.00 per bag, per day. It is wise to travel light. Luggage tags are provided and required for hotel identification, and are sent with the final letter with the phone numbers of your hotels.

All taxes and gratuities for included meals and activities are included, unless otherwise mentioned by the Escort. Driver and Escort gratuities are not included in the price of the tour, and are optional. However, the suggested gratuity as posted by the American Bus Assoc. for a job well done is $2.00-$2.50 per person/per day for the tour escort, and $2.00-$2.50 per person/per day for the driver. We request that you express this on an individual basis, and let the quality of service received be your guide.

On all overnight tours, we use a daily seat rotation. The first day of a trip, we allow you to choose your seat when you get on, and rotate from there. We feel this is fair to all involved. If the coach is not full, a less formal rotation may be used at escort’s discretion.

We make regular stops for restrooms and for the convenience of smokers; however, we have a NO SMOKING policy aboard all coaches. This policy also applies to e-cigarettes.
