  • The tour was well conducted and afforded a chance to learn more about the Ford family and see how this wealthy and iconic family lived. The tour can be done in an hour, but on a nice day more time to ...  more »

  • Great place to go if you want to see how the rich lived before all you had to do to get rich was release a sex tape of you blowing some marginal "celebrity". Edsel Ford knew how to live. Not to mention the grounds are keep to exceptional standards. Not a well known spot, but I recommend it to anyone in the area, great way to spend a day.
  • We did the behind the scenes tour. Great insight into the Ford family and their home. If you have a chance, do this, you won't be disappointed.
  • Beautiful Home, one of a kind!! Staff was very accommodating/friendly. Four Stars because of the lack of Automobiles designed by Edsel. If you are interested in Cars, this tour is not for you. Go to Fairlane, Henry's House. This is a Women's Tour!
  • Love the Beautiful grounds. Have a great time rain or shine, every year listening to the DSO and watching fireworks.
  • I think everyone needs to do this tour at least once. It's a great experience and opportunity to get a glance into life from a different time. And if you appreciate old architecture, you'll really enjoy this.
