    Hello

    If this were what you’re looking for, I would recommend this particular tour, which I have been on myself. “Horse Drawn, Buggy” You can have your own private buggy as couples or families you may have your choice of buggies or open wagons. The tour is specifically touring live working Amish farms and communities, and i'm sure it's possible to arrange your own mini tour! Contact the provider direct to obtain your quote at;

    > find a tour or transportation into the surrounding areas for photos

    I'm going to presume you're hoping to see Amish people. Please be aware of, AND RESPECT, the fact that Amish have an absolute prohibition on being photographed. Taking their picture while they are out in their fields or riding their buggies would be like someone taking your picture while you are having a shower. If you can't respect their wishes, at least be discreet about your violation of their privacy.
