It's a nice walk down meeting street from the center of the city, but you won't have to wait long for your tour since they take place every half-hour. This tour is of this private home which is occupied on the top floor and basement...More

90% of the 30 minute, $16 tour was discussions about the current owners and THEIR stuff. There was NO original furniture, portraits, no kitchen, baths...And I don't know how anyone can live in such clutter; antiques everywhere. They were all beautiful. And they were all...More
