Spent about three hours touring the house and gardens. Amazing to see how a Robber Baron and his family lived. The gardens and conservatory were really nice. The views from parts of the estate are spectacular. It is a pricey attraction but worth it.

We visited the Biltmore Estate on a cloudy and rainy day. We focused our visit on the Biltmore House. We took the audio tour, which was very informative. Our visit lasted about 2 hours. We signed up for the “rooftop tour” on the next day,...More

It cost a fortune for the tour of this place and it was in no way worth it. It was poorly organized, very crowded and dark. The place has 255 rooms and we saw maybe 50. All the windows were heavily shaded and the lighting...More
