Absolutely loved this tour! As long time fan of Mark Twain, I have always wanted to visit his home and it did not disappoint! Michael our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable but if you get a chance to go on the living history tour make sure you do. Another tour was ahead of us and it looked fantastic. Drove 2 hours out of the way for the visit and well worth the trip. In my opinion $20 per person is reasonably priced considering the cost to preserve this magnificent home.
To be in the room where Sam wrote Huckleberry Finn? That’s worth the trip alone. The bonus is getting to learn about how Samuel Clemens became one of the most respected American authors, Mark Twain. Visiting his home we learn that he is quite deep and complex. His Huckleberry Finn only made him famous after his death. His home is stunningly beautiful and worth a visit. His stories and work are legendary.
