The tour and the tour guide were great! We had three girls, ages 3-8, and the tour guide was great with them. We will definitely recommend!

YOU WERE CLOSED. We arrived at the house at 9:45 only to find that it was closed. There was a very very slight rain. The VA State Fair, a few miles away was open involving thousands of people. I requested a refund by email but have not heard back yet, I will try to call in a while. There was absolutely no reason to close. Perhaps you did not sell enough tickets to pay for your expenses. It is somewhat strange that you would ask for a review. Do you not know that you were closed?
