Fabulous Lady in gift store! Relaxing outside tour of the grounds with a peeks into cottages. So much to see and read without the crowds. Enjoyed the gardens and drive up to James Monroe's estate (original house no longer exists). There are also hiking trails, which would have been Fantastic, so wear the right shoes. Don't forget your magnet at the gift store. It makes me happy every time I go to the fridge. Good Times and I'd never heard of it before Groupon!

Not only was the tour fascinating, our guide, Roger Munsick, was terrific! Knew everything, great sense of humor, was patient with the small kids in our group--he made the whole thing worth while.

Very nice tour with our tremendous tour guide Kate. Monroe's house is much smaller than Monticello, but still remarkable. The Groupon was a 50% savings and really made this visit a good value.
