  • One of the best presidential home experiences I've had. Very unique experience considering the family still resides at the plantation. Tour guide was top notch.
  • Nice self guided walking tour. Years ago my family toured the home. We meet the great grandson of president Tyler and bought the great grandson's mother's autographed cookbook.
  • Great experience, nice grounds, lots of history. We enjoyed self-guided toor and were able to see all the items pointed out in the brochure. There is $10 fee, cash only, which you deposit at the entrance. Obviously, the big house tour is not included in the tour, as the President's grandson family resides there, however there are tours by appointment.
  • Beautiful house. Informative guides. Pleasant grounds.
  • Definitely not worth the effort or $10. It's a self guided tour which is fine except that most of what you're supposed to see is beyond no trespassing signs. The house and grounds are beautiful but we learned nothing, saw little and were gone in 5 minutes.
