Over $50 a ticket just to get in! For that price, they don't even give you a tour:(. Every tour, even audio, is an additional cost. The food prices were crazy high, too. Interesting place in a pretty setting, but you expect much more for what you pay to see it. We were disappointed.

To think about the engineering and craftsmanship that went into designing & building the Biltmore is so impressive; the beginning of what we know today as Forestry was born right here - makes the Blue Ridge Mountains that more beautiful! Definitely get the audio - for $10 - well worth it! Beautiful, would love to see it again at Christmas!

The Biltmore was a great way to spend the day. From walking on the trails, to enjoying the beautiful gardens and an amazing tour through the house our day was full. We hope to return to explore it again.

Definitely worth the price. Buy your tickets on-line and save 14 dollars plus the second day is free. Get to the estate early as it gets very crowded and hot in warm months. You could easily spend an entire day there if you go to the Antler Village. The architecture tour is definitely worth it! Beautiful views that are not on the standard house tour.
