First of all the Biltmore is outstanding. Go! But whatever you do, don't take Diamond Tours on Brazos Valley Bus. Our bus broke down not once, but twice, costing us hours in the hotel lobby and once on the Picadilly parking low. We waited 7 hours the first time for a new bus, and less time the second time...but in fear of waiting another 7 hours, some of us went ahead and rented a car to come home. No compensation from them at all.
The hotels with Diamond Tours were okay...some not clean, but others okay. If you go, stay at the Biltmore Hotel on the property. And you don't need a tour company to see Biltmore or stay there.
The restaurants on the Diamond Tour were mediocre...you know...Whataburger, Ryan's Steakhouse, etc. Too many great places to eat in Louisiana and North Carolina to eat there. When we were on our own on meals, there were some outstanding restaurants.
Diamond Tours contracts with different bus companies. Check and make sure, if you go, that they are not taking Brazos Valley Bus Tours. From what I understand, the emissions were not acceptable, and it shuts of the bus and won't let it go. Thank God we weren't on the side of the road at night....
