Customer Reviews

1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2014

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.
