Loved the Biltmore! Of course wish we could have had it all to ourselves but instead was trapped in a slow moving, very crowded line. We rented the headset so got a lot of interesting information as we passed through. Especially enjoyed the servants quarters and lower floor. Just wish we could have gone at our own pace instead of... More

This place is wonderful from top to bottom. The gardens were well maintained, so much to see. The estate was beautiful. Be prepared to walk to see everything but it is well worth it!!

Touring this incredible home will leave a lasting impression on you. The gardens were immaculate, the art collection stunning, a swimming pool inside your home unfathomable. The home is kept in pristine condition. Make sure to allow yourself at least 2 - 3 hours to truly be able to see everything this home had to offer in it. I am... More

Beautiful estate, wonderfully helpful and courteous staff. Took almost 3 hours to do the self guided tour. Would recommend buying the audio. All day event including the complimentary wind tasting. Great day!

We loved the house tour and walking the gardens. The wine tasting was top notch. We heard about the Legacy Tour while waiting for the shuttle in the parking lot. A worker was "advertising" this tour- sounded interesting so we took the bait and scheduled the tour after the house tour. So disappointing- we got out of the shuttle to... More

So interesting and so much history there. Very fascinating tour….and well worth getting the self guided audio tour. The gardens and wine tasting are included in the price. Only thing is….we really liked a wine we tasted and bought it. I am not 100% certain, but I don't think what we bought was the same vintage as what we tasted.... More

We went to the Biltmore for our first anniversary. We are celebrating 7 years this year! We wanted to get a bottle of pinot noir that we got at the winery on our first anniversary. Samantha, in the gate house, was so helpful and friendly! She deserves a raise!!

Felt like an escape to another time and place. Incredible is probably the best way that I can describe it. We loved getting to tour the various rooms. We felt the basic tour of the house was the perfect amount of time and exposure in the house. The variety of rooms and kitchen and servant's quarters gives a great overview.... More

I have always wanted to go to the Biltmore and our visit did not disappoint. So much to see... beauty and lovely details everywhere you look. Based on other reviews, we wisely gave ourselves enough time to really tour and enjoy the grounds by taking advantage of a 3 day, 2 night package at the Inn on Biltmore. Staying on... More
