  • The tour guide was so knowledgeable. My daughters (14,8) were entertained by the info given and loved the ease of going around. And the ability to go back and take your time- though you were not rushed through by any means
  • A grand homestead in wonderful grounds, with a fascinating story. Our guided tour was worth the wait, the guide was knowledgeable and informative, and knew the answers to our questions. The homestead itself has been filled with interesting artifacts from the period. We didn't have time to walk to the tomb on top of Mt Vaea, but having RLS's Requiem sung to us by one of the staff more than made up for it.
  • such a good and amazing experience and such friendly staff who knew the answers to all our questions :)
  • Beautiful grounds, the tour was fun. I got a kick out of our guide’s terrible jokes.
