To start, I do recommend this tour if you are like me and are limited on time and just want to get into one of the gorgeous historic homes. I had read the book and seen the movie years ago, so that also appealed to...More
FIRSTLY, the Mercer house is a beautiful home that was lovingly restored. The tour started in the garden and focused on key individuals who either owned or designed the structure. The rest of the tour was mostly focused on materials, architectural features and décor that...More

I can't remember exactly. Less than an hour! Maybe 45 minutes. Depends on how many people ask questions at the end, and if you stick around to hear the guide's answers. You only see the back garden and the 1st floor's 4 rooms. No photos allowed.
