The Annenberg Estate is magnificent in beauty & peacefulness. The house & grounds were well planned. The art collection & photographs are wonderful to view. Jessica was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable who took her job very seriously but had fun presenting the information.

Advance reservation so busy is a relative turn. Day is relevant to your other plans only. A wonderful place ‘for discourse’ said George Shultz. Discourse continues.
