Called Monday 6/30 about visiting The Bleak House. I was told by a nice young gentle that the house would be open today, Thursday, 07/03. He advised me that I probably should be there by 1:00 so that I would have time to get to Pigeon Forge for a show that we were going too. We made our plans drove... More

Absolutly one of best tours ever! The guides are some of the most knowledgeable friendly people we have met on this trip. Wonderfully kept home with one heck of a history, even has the cannon ball and bullet holes left in the walls!

We read in the book that they were open at 10:00 AM for tours. When we got there, there was a note on the door saying they would be open at 1:00 PM. We got there at 1:00, waited until 1:30. We called the phone numbers listed. No answer. Because of our schedule, we could not wait longer. At one... More

We visited this historic home in Knoxville as part of the Civil War Trails' 150th Anniversary Celebration. Our tour guide was a walking encyclopedia of Civil War knowledge and trivia. He brought out many lesser known facts regarding the Civil War and brought history to life.

The website needs to reflect the 2013 calendar. Otherwise, the trip was worth the go. It is a beautiful memorial and the tour guides are very knowledgeable.

While the Bleak house is amazing, the tour guide gets far, far too involved with his version of the war and it's causes. One hour into the tour, we were still within 20ft of the door!! This tour guide is knowledgeable but needs to minimize the history lessons not pertinent to the battle and the houses involvement in the siege.... More
