The bus ride was scenic and the guide was informative. The tour at Pedro St. James after the video was good but the video was to long taking away time to explore the grounds.

Well worth the trip especially if you are lucky enough to get Stacy to guide you. This elderly gentleman is a descendant of the man who built the original house in 1780. His presentation is both detailed and personal.
