TOUR THE LARGEST OLD ORDER AMISH COLONY West of the Mississippi River which surrounds JAMESPORT, MO.
Jamesport is not only The Largest and the Very First Amish Colony to settle in MO but is also The Only Colony in MO where group tours are conducted.
We are THE experienced Step-On-Tour-Guide Service with a lifetime of knowledge from going to school with and experiencing "The Amish Way Of Life".
Jamesport, Missouri is located less than an hour and a half from Kansas City, Independence, Liberty, and St. Joseph, MO. About 20 minutes away is the Mormon shrine "Adam-Ondi-Ahman".
If you are looking for an adventure off the beaten path, to a world where people still live their life as if time has stood still from many decades ago, then "Step Back In Time Tours" is a must see. On your tour with us, you will see, learn, and personally experience what "very few" people are ever allowed to see. Only with the very best tour guide available will you learn inside stories, and hear humorous tales that will make your tour not only educational, but entertaining as well. On Our Group Tours you will find one of the strictest Old Order Amish Colonies still remaining in the world today! These "Plain People" use no electricity and use only horses for their transportation and work. They lead their daily lives and teach their children by their strict interpretation of the Bible scriptures.
No trip to the Jamesport Amish Colony is complete without our guided tour. We'll guide your group to Jacob's Farm, all of the country stores and historic sites while providing little known facts about the Amish along the way as we are greeted by Amish families driving their horse & buggies.
As we tour the Amish farmland we will make stops at the nostalgic paradise of the Amish Country Stores where you may purchase Amish crafted goods such as Amish oak furniture, Amish quilts, rugs, baskets, clocks, books, fabrics, spices, lye soap, candles, fresh bakery goods and so many one-of-a-kind items for great gifts or for yourself.
Thousands of people like you visit the Jamesport Amish Colony and go on our tour each year to see what these" Plain People " must be missing out on in today's modern world armed with only an 8th grade education. After our Tour Guide provides you with an in-depth, inside view of the Amish way of life and after a deeper look into "their world" most people leave with the realization that just maybe"WE" are the ones who are truly missing out on the important things of life!!
You will see and learn how and why these Amish people choose to live their lives separate and disconnected from the rest of the modern world today as did their ancestors. You will see & experience life as it was in "The Good Ole' Days" still being lived everyday by"Real People" and"Not Actors!!"
We will join group tours of all sizes, from charter buses, bank travel clubs, churches, schools & clubs, caravans, to families. This is a one-of-a-kind return to days gone by, fun-filled, educational, entertaining & perfect tour for ALL AGES.
