We easily booked a tour at Cairnwood for our group of four. The tour guide, Lisa, is the Director and is extremely knowledgeable about all aspect of the estate, the family and the influence they had in this beautiful little nook outside Philadelphia. Lisa was very gracious with her time, answering our seemingly endless stream of questions. Although the day started out quite bleak, when we arrived at the estate, the sun came out to show bathe Cairnwood it perfect light. It was gorgeous. This is a fascinating look at an often overlooked part of Philadelphia history. I highly recommend this estate for a tour. We will definitely go back to visit the other parts of the property: Glencairn and the cathedral. Don’t miss this!

We did the Christmas tour, which had been extended into January. It was a private tour, which gave us the opportunity to ask tons of questions! Our docent was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I brought my teenaged son & daughter - they both loved it!

You must take the guided tours of all 3 facilities that are adjacent to each other and all are on the most breathtaking of grounds! Restrooms galore and a great value for the price!
