We had taken the tour a few years back and remembered it being okay. We were pleasantly surprised to find they had changed things up a bit and made it even more enjoyable. I was especially impressed by the young girl in the back warehouse, Hattie. At first I thought she was very shy and nervous, then I realized it... More

I didn't expect much on this, but was pleasantly surprised. The number of antique items in this store is amazing. Even better was the fact that tour guides are dressed up and play as if it is that time period. Even gave the pricing of many of the items (back in the day). If we could all only go back... More

Our precious guide with her sweet Dolly Parton voice transported our entire group eloquently to the days of the old stores humble beginnings with a wave of her hand and a "Howdy!! Come on in!" that encompassed us one and all. Magically making the mercantile come alive with her descriptive sales pitches and demonstrations of the unbelievable variety and amount... More

It was ok, I felt a bit over price for what you get. We got to see some cool things, and the guide was ok. However just felt this was not worth what we paid to see it.... Wouldn't care to take our kids nothing extremely cool to see, just some old things they use to sell.

The actor was really good. Not enough time for all the cool gadgets they have in there, But enjoyed the ones they talked about. This was included in my trolley tours package. I really liked seeing all the old pieces and the acting made it fun.
