Spent 5 hours at Biltmore Estate. Had lunch, shopped a bit, walked the grounds, went to the village, wine testing and then toured the Estate. Leave yourself a lot of time to enjoy everything. MUST GET THE AUDIO FOR HOUSE TOUR!

This was one of my Bucket List places to see. WOW, it was amazing! We got there early on a late fall morning before it got too busy. It was the second day it was open after it was decorated for Christmas. The Christmas tree in the Banquet Hall was incredible. I would highly recommend the audio tour - I... More

The. Butler's Tour was fabulous! I also recommend using the audio device when you take the general tour of the house. I learned so much!

The extent and opulence of this estate was beyond my expectations! Wow! My first visit and we took the 6:30 Candlelight tour. Being that Christmas is our favorite holiday the estate decorations were amazing! The huge lit Christmas tree out in front was a great start to our adventure! Do yourself a favor and take the photo opportunity when given.... More

The estate is a self guided walking tour of the largest private residence in the USA. Audio and personal guide tours are offered for an additional cost. We did research and reading about the Vanderbilts prior to our visit, so took the self guided tour. You are shuttled from parking lot to house on this large estate by friendly drivers.... More

The crowds were lined up outside the front door. When we finally got in the door, many people in line were listening to their audio players. The lines only inched along, four people wide and made seeing everything extremely difficult. We were there on a Friday, late morning. The grounds are lovely and the house, what we could see of...

Went through with the guided electronic tour and it was lovely. Then went back in the evening for the Christmas walk through. Spent a day and a half and it was just great. One suggestion I would have for them is in the marketplace you had to stand in a food line just to get a coke, would suggest they... More

First trip since my childhood and grateful that I got to share this wonderful place with my family. Audio tour was really fun. The kids appreciated the child friendly audio tour - I could here them laughing as well as I saw them truly engaged.
