  • Great and informative. The tour guide was a young man the was very knowledgeable and helpful. He did not rush the group and was able to answer all our questions. For the low cost of the tour it was well worth it. The tour lasted over an hour. No regrets at all for going on the tour.
  • My daughter really wanted to do this tour. I’ve toured many mansions and don’t find it particularly enjoyable, but she’d been patient and game for everything we did all weekend. This was, without a doubt, one of the best tours I’ve ever experienced. Our guide brought everything to life, she was interactive, and she clearly loved her job. It was beyond worth the cost of admission, educational, breathtaking, and very entertaining. As I told our guide, I wish they could train the guides at the jail in how to tell a story and bring your subject to vivid life!
