  • We had 2 great hosts with great knowledge and enjoyed the tour, but found it a little disappointing that all furnishings (except 2 items) in the house are from elsewhere. Also disappointing, tour pamp...  more »
  • Enjoyed the visit to the Belvedere Mansion - was disappointed that we were not allowed onto the top floor. Wish that there would not have been so many items that were added from various collections. I...  more »
  • I happened to drive by this grand home and I stopped for a tour. I love the big porches and the tower. This may be the most grand home in Galena. I saw a couple of other smaller, similar ones but this...  more »

  • I just finished reading the reviews of the past. I am happy to say the must have hired new help. All three of our guides were very informative and curtious. We were there over the Fourth of July. I loved the mansion but a bit to cluttered for my taste. Some of the pieces take away from the history of Galena. All in all we had a nice time.
  • We were rushed through the short tour and unable to follow the docent because he spitted the words out so fast. It was obvious they wanted to get us out of there asap. Also it was very over priced even with the coupon discount. Not worth it.
  • Went for our wedding anniversary. Tour guide was rude. Insulting. An elderly gentleman on the tour clearly had trouble walking. He said he would do the bottom and just stay downstairs for the rest of the tour. Tour guide said that was fine but he couldn't get a discount. It was $12 per person. Not worth getting yelled at by some fat old tour guide who thinks his insults are funny.
  • Beautiful spot to visit
  • Tour guide was very rude. Insulted my wife twice in the 1st 5 min of the tour. Refused to refund our money. $12.75 per person.
