The home itself is beautiful, and is well maintained. Our guide was knowledgeable about the property and the owners. However, we were not encouraged to view the rooms after she finished her description; we had to march to the next one.
Our tour guide was not very friendly. She didn't like to answer questions, and watched our group as if we were going to steal things. Since the minimum age in the group was probably around 40, and very respectful, this didn't seem to be called for.
We were not allowed to look at the grounds at all. And when she found out that the gift shop was unexpectedly closed, we had to get back on the tour vehicle immediately.
