I feel that the places we visited were wonderful and I enjoyed seeing the estates and their grounds. However, there was not enough time at these stops - the Hermitage especially. Several passengers expresses their disappointment in not getting to see most of the plantation.
Also we were in such a rush that we didn't have time to eat anything. The tour was several hours so having time set aside for lunch would have been nice.
The tour guide was informative, though, and it was nice to explore these stops on our own. I am glad that I booked this trip but also think it was a bit pricey.
