Upstairs, downstairs ...this home is spectacular. The tour is self-guided with personal at-your-own-pace audio players. The docents, drivers and security employees are very hospitable and gracious. Gardens are grand.

It's a pricey tour but worth it. The house is unreal and the guides are very knowledgeable. I would suggest asking questions to the guides if your taking a tour alone. The audio was ok for me but my wife loves it. Be aware there are a lot of steps and this is a true walking tour. We walked 2... More

They call this the closest to American royalty you will come. They are probably correct. I was amazed by the technical aspects of the place as much as the grandeur. One day I will go back for the “Technical Tour”. It is definitely worth your time and the walk to see the estates and the house. It truly is an... More

So much to do and see on one day. It's best to make a weekend of the trip. The grounds were superb. We viewed the gardens in the spring; the best time of the year. The crowds were not terrible and there were plenty of attractions such as a vintage car show on the front lawn.

Over the years, we have visited the Biltmore Estate numerous times. The most popular time to visit is during the Christmas holidays, when you can tour the estate during the daytime or take a Candlelight Tour at night. Both are very impressive, but our favorite is the Candlelight Tour. Note: If you take the Candlelight tour, you can visit again... More

We finally had the opportunity to go and see one of the great masterpieces of architectural history from the Gilded Age. This is a house that is still operational and fully functioning for the heirs of George Vanderbilt. What is fascinating is the engineering and craftsmanship that went into the original design. The forethought regarding the structural design, the fact... More
