The tour was neat and we had a good tour guide. You get cookies and lemonade in the old eating area while you listen to the tour guide. It was part of the 24-hour museums/historic sites pass of Fredericksburg attrations (stop in the Visitor's Center to get it around 10/11am to fit in the most stops). Beware if there is a special speaker or author - we got stuck listening to an author for 45 minutes because that is where I thought the tour started (the woman ushered me into the room and the rest in my group followed me...). The author wasn't horrible, it just wasn't really our thing.
