Opulence... extravagance... breath taking views... vast, beautiful grounds... what a gem!
Well worth the price of admission! If you’re on the fence about going or not- Jump off now and go... well worth it! The staff are extremely accommodating and kind and there’s no place like this on Earth!

This was my 4th trip to Biltmore and as always the Estate is stunning. This trip we booked a candlelight tour to enjoy the holiday decorations and were not disappointed. The architecture, furnishings, and history of Biltmore is amazing. While in the area this should definitely be on your list to,see anytime of the year but especially during the Christmas season. Now, is it a bit expensive? Yes...basically expect to spend around $100 per person. Is it crowded? Yes...especially during the Christmas season. Is it worth it? YES...worth every penny.

The only way to see the country's largest home but it was crowded and costly. They get money form ever turn there. There is plenty to do- we drove out on the property to stables and rode a horse and carriage- I would recommend that- The guide told history that was amazing- The house is beyond words

It is a beautiful property indeed, but in my humble opinion extremely overpriced!... For a candlelight tour it ended up being over $90/pp (self guided & no valet). Sure there’s a choir singing when you go in but not worth the $. I sure hate I missed the last day tour. I can say I have been but sadly have no desire to go back. I can appreciate the detailed intricacies that went into the building especially for that time period but could have enjoyed it more watching on TV without the crowds.

Will not allow LEO entrance with firearm. However, does not pat down or have metal detectors for the public not have any armed guards. Completely unsafe.
