  • Way better than I expected and certainly worth the $60. Michael was our tour guide. He was insightful and had a great sense of humor. Really kept the tour interesting. Glad we did this tour.
  • My wife and I wanted to take the guided tour and I flipped when I heard it was $60 per person. The tour was a full 2 1/2 hours and was I soo glad we did it. Our guide was Bobby and he was amazing. He knew every plant, tree, statue, building , rooster and duck, their origin and how long they have been there. The property is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend a tour.
