There were 4 of us and we had the buffet. We were greeted by a very friendly woman who led us to our table. We were not ready to eat at that time. Our server was very accommodating. She brought us coffee and checked back with us several times. The food was outstanding. We were confused about tipping so we sought out someone in charge. The woman we talked to was wonderful. We are so glad we asked because we thought the tip was included and it was not. Our server was so good we would have been upset had we not left her compensation and found out later it was not included.
We got the tour only option. It was a very informative and very nice. The only downside was that it was FREEZING. So we tried to stay inside the dinning room area to keep warm but we ventured out to see the sights as we traveled but it was just windy and cold the day we went but we still really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the jazz band. My husband had them play me a special song for our anniversary so that was great. I would say go on this tour. There is SO much history to be learned and you won't be disapointed.
