Enjoyed the tour in the evening. The house was lovingly decorated for Christmas, and the tour guides were knowledgable and caring.

“A great historical place to visit.”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

My wife and I along with another couple did the Christmas tour of the Physick Estate. A most enjoyable and informative tour by re-enactors that stay in character the whole time. Well worth the time!

“Nice piece of history too many do not touch signs”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

Okay you don't have to put "don't touch" signs every few inches. It takes away from the sense of history and the feeling that you are seeing something old and real in its natural setting. Other than that, the home was beautiful and very interesting. I'd still recommend it.

“Wish it was Ours!”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

A beautiful return to the Victorian age. The actor/interpretors were extremely well-versed in the history of the place and the people. Well worth the ticket price!
