The grounds and the view are very nice. The tour includes the first floor of the house and the grounds only. If you want to go upstairs that is another tour and another ticket. No photos inside. The tour guides were knowledgeable, with one exception: One tour guide (outside) demonized Jefferson for being a slaveholder without placing him in the proper sociohistorical context. He also unfairly asserted that Jefferson was the father of all of Sally Hemmings' children. Even though DNA only suggests it might be him, or perhaps his brother; it is inconclusive.
