Belmont Mansion Reviews & Ratings
I would recommend this tour. Our guide was Gail she was very knowledgeable and very friendly. She really painted a real good picture of the times when all this history occurred . Thanks Gail for sharing another piece of history with us.
Great tour! I expected to get some knowledge of the structure and all the stuff inside, but it turned out to be an informative story of a strong independent woman and her family. Filled with facts and examples of what it's was like way back then. Highly recommend!! Oh... Not to mention they have the cutest little giftshop with a wide variety of souvenirs. All the staff very kind and nice.
What an interesting tour! Our guide, Priscilla, was fantastic and really brought the story to life and had wonderful knowledge of the history. Would highly recommend.
We really enjoyed our visit to the Belmont mansion. I love architecture, and the Italianate style is one of my favorites. The tour guide was knowledgeable and thorough, easy to understand. I feel like we actually got more out of this than we did Andrew Jackson's Hermitage. It's always fascinating to dive back into history and find out how people lived and worked, and realize that they shared many of the same personal struggles as we do today, in spite of the lack of technological advances.
The tour was very nice. Our guide did a wonderful job! The mansion was clean and presentable. Lots of information.
