When you're in Albany don't miss the Schuyler Mansion. So much history. Our docent was wonderful. She answered every question we had and then some. My husband tells everyone it was the highlight of our trip - from Norfolk to Saratoga Springs.

Took the tour that highlighted the sisters. Docent was so detailed. Don't know what the other tours are like. One features Hamilton. You need to,reserve your spot usually in advance.

Due to limited space inside the historic home, we can accommodate a maximum of 11 people per tour. With prearrangement, we can accommodate 3 of these groups at once, meaning we can take a group of approximately 30 people... More
