My wife and I visited the Biltmore Estate recently and came away in awe. It takes the better part of a day to tour Biltmore, a Chateauesque-style mansion built by George Vanderbilt in the late 1800s. Spent part of a second day to thrill at...More

Amazing estate! We toured with 2 boys ages 5 and 8. And they loved the 90 min audio guide. Without it they would have been bored for sure. The garden was amazing and we also enjoyed the shops. Drive over to the gardens. The winery...More

We did a self-guided tour of this lovely estate. The admission cost is somewhat pricey, but we purchased tickets a week in advance and saved $10 on each. It took us about 2 hours to tour the inside of the home. Very interesting and beautiful....More

I am planning a visit to the Biltmore with my husband. Do we both need to purchase two of the audio devises or can we both use just one?

Thank you for your question. The Audio Guide is intended to be used one per person. It is a handheld mp3 player, designed much like a telephone, that you hold up to your ear to learn more about the rooms, family, and objects... More
