We took an excursion here and it was fun, but a little pricey. Not much to do while we we there. We learned a lot about the culture and history of the area.

We did the night tour when they do a re-enactment with costumed people playing the roles of those that inhabited the house. The nighttime ambiance gave the place an eerie glow that made the true-life ghost stories all the more real and creepy. The house itself is beautiful and it's history is compelling. There were once over 700 great houses... More

This is a jumping spot. Love going there. The things you'll see after enough alcohol is amazing. Music and food great.

Was a great experience. The guide was knowledgeable and even sang a song about Rose at the end of our tour. The photographer was there to take a professional photo of our visit as well.
