  • They like you to get there 15 minutes before tour starts but my group was there about 45 minutes early because there is a gift shop as well as displays about the place and the people to see before tour starts. We had a very enjoyable time seeing the place, so charming. Tour guides were wonderful.
  • What an inspiring tour! Irene was a very knowledgeable docent, she shared many great stories, and showed us many of the details that had gone into all of the painting and decorating of these wonderful homes. Glad we took the whole tour! Can’t wait to come back for one of your events!
