Interesting tour of several historic homes built by the first settlers to the area, and a look into life at the time.

Everyone who visits Hermann should take this exceptional tour. I have taken tours of many historic sites and this is definitely in the top rank. The scholarship is thorough and all the tour guides are extremely knowledgeable. If you come to Hermann to taste wine, this is a great place to start to learn about the history of wine-making.

The beginning of this tour was really interesting but by the end it had gone on too long. The houses were really cool to see. It's so amazing to see how people lived in the past. The business parts of the tour were just too detailed for me. I like some of the detail but not as much as we... More

My wife and I had a personal tour of the old historic homes in town because we were the only two on the tour. The director showed us different homes, answered all of our questions, and new a great deal about the architecture and history. If you enjoy history and older architecture DO NOT miss this!

The guide was very knowledgable and informative. It was difficult for everyone to fit in some of the spaces and therefore a little awkward at times.... More
