  • Really neat and very helpful guides. The guide John is one of the more easygoing and very patient guides I have spoken to. Great for father son time. Definitely recommend for the person you love who enjoys hands-on history
  • I enjoyed stepping into the past. It is a beautiful property. I'm so glad I live in the present... no air conditioning in the house. There is air conditioning in the gift shop. Additionally, there is quite a bit of walking you can do if you desire. The bus tour is as long as you want to make it. You are not required to leave with the group you arrived with as long as you leave before the last bus of the day.
