Call ahead for the schedule they have enjoyable and educational activities during the year. My sister-in-law and I thoroughly enjoyed tour due to knowledgeable tour guides who enjoyed their jobs of bringing history alive. The bathrooms for visitors were clean and modern.

Went on this tour with my daughter and it was awesome, loved the main house and enjoyed the outside your as well. The location was convenient and really enjoyed the tour guides stories and personal touch. I really want to go to Sugar Day the 2nd Saturday in November.

Enjoyed the visit and tour. We took a group tour on a Saturday. There are 10 of us, all archaeologists. We are doing an archaeological project here in Alexandria, and it is always interesting and educational exploring different historical and archaeological areas.
