Loved the tour. Our guide Kevin was informative and answered all our questions. He kept the tour interesting and upbeat. Also, the woman who worked in the gift shop was so nice and helped us with other sight seeing options. They offer a military aaaa and senior discount.

I had heard the Jenny Wade story before but seeing the home and having a great tour guide really brought it all to life.

“Interesting”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The story of Jenny Wade is both interesting and sad. The tour is a little boring. I took both the day tour and the night tour. Neither one was scary.

“Civil War History”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Like that it is authentic time period structure with some of the original items from when Virginia was there. Bullet holes and all.
