The guide was very knowledgeable. The hand-carved wood work was very elegant. The history of the families added a great deal to the tour.

Anyone visiting Louisville needs to visit this gem in the heart of Old Town Louisville. The family connection of the guide to the original owners was an unexpected bonus. I have never seen better woodwork in a turn of the century house, fantastic beauty!

We did a few days get a way and we looked up places to visit. So glad we took the tour. The wood work in this house is simply amazing. Our tour guide was fantastic.

We will be staying at the Marriott East, how long and how best to get there. We will have a car but other transportation might be better? Do we get the tickets when we arrive or better to get them ahead? We will be in Louisville Oct 12-15. Thank you Lanita Moen
