Wonderful house with a tour guide full of information about the people who lived in The house and the servants living downstairs. Lots of rooms to visit and can take photos. If you like Downton Abbey you will love this tour.

Great guided tour of this "castle" - knowledgeable guide and the house was beautifully set up as a museum. We came out with a real understanding of life at the time. Thoroughly recommend!

The castle is well maintained and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. There is nothing that I can say negative about the whole trip. Go with family. This probably is an experience that should be shared. I don't think I would take the tour solo.

Visiting Dundurn Castle is always a great time. It never gets old. We have gone several times over the years. Kids always have a good time and it's a nice way to see history displayed.
