This was my 4th Grand Tour, and I've loved each and every one. Having the owner of the home as our tour guide was a rare and wonderful experience. I was able to learn new things about the house and its history, and I loved hearing about the recently acquired pieces. The array of beautiful antiques, rare pieces and oddities are a delight to see and hear about. This is a tour without compare and an opportunity to see not only a wonderful historic home, but also collection of art and artistic pieces you will not find elsewhere. This is a simply amazing tour with each one being different. I look forward to going again next year.

My name is Lori Bobo and I am a concierge at the Wentworth Mansion. I am writing on behalf of our guests, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis. Mr. Lewis raved this morning about how much he enjoyed yesterday's tour. Thank you so much for your special attention to every detail- the guests thoroughly appreciated your time and enjoyed their visit to Calhoun Mansion. We will certainly recommend many times again!

Fascinating history of home, its owners and construction as well as the many artistic treasures inside. Having Howard as the guide added depth and interest overall. ..would recommend highly. Howard 's love of the beauty in art was so refreshing in a society which has little or no appreciation for such things.
