Driver was great, with lots of interesting and amusing stories about the mansions and the people who built and lived in them. Very nice bus tour. Well worth the low cost...go for it!

One of the best tours we have ever taken! The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly! Seeing all those mansions was fantastic, along with the history. We would have loved the tour to be longer. We wouldn't think twice about taking another tour with Viator!

This is the standard mansion tour we pre-booked to ensure the tours were not sold out on a beautiful fall weekend with cruise ships in town. The tour covers the Bellevue mansion area only. It allows a visit to one or two mansions depending on your preference. We toured the always fabulous Breakers and the veru unusual Marble House. Tickets are supplied for the return trip to the visitors center.

Overall, I was extremely disappointed with the mansion package from Viator. For the cost of the tour we got nothing extra. We waited on a long line, we were rushed through the tour and to be perfectly honest I'm not sure what the $55.oo per person was to cover. We had to drive to the vistor center and then we left from there, we couldn't even take our time throughout the mansion. We were initially told that the tour would be approximately 2 hours and we were there at most 45 minutes. I would never use them again and would never recommend them. I was extremely disappointed.
