Dinner tours at David Warther Carvings usually begin with your group arriving at about 4 or 5 pm. Your group is given a complete tour of the exhibit and workshop by David before everyone sits down to enjoy a delicious catered meal with David and his wife Maryruth. The meal is prepared by a local, fully-licensed caterer, and includes a plated entre, salad, dessert, and beverage.
The tour usually takes about an hour and a half and includes a showing by David of several of his carving techniques from his workshop studio that is located centrally in the museum exhibit. Afterwards your group is seated among the carvings with tables of linen, centerpieces, subdued lighting and dinner music.
The rate is $40 per person. Rate includes the complete tour, dinner, tax and gratuity. No tipping, as it is built into the price. Driver and escorts are offered dinner at a reduced rate. Dinner tours require a minimum of 25 guests.
These dinner tours are a special evening and they have been well received by tour groups wanting to experience the area and the people of our area in a genuine non-touristy way. The dinner is relaxing and capstones a great day in Ohio's Amish community. From when your group arrives until they leave you should count on 3 hours of time or slightly more. We are located between Sugarcreek and Walnut Creek, Ohio, so we are central to the motel corridor from Dover to Berlin. Most area motels are within 10 minutes of our location while some are within 20 minutes.
If you want to schedule a regular non-dinner tour the group rate is $8 each with the tour director and bus driver being free. You should count on the group spending an hour and a half + for the regular tour. If we can help you with any other information or if you want to schedule your group just call us at 330-852-6096 or email us through our contact page ! Thank you.
