Great Place. Was a rush though. Could have stopped at any of the wonderful small towns with historic buildings along the way.

Amazing day out. You need several hours to look at this place I consider it to be an all dayer. The costumes from this era are beautiful and the storekeepers etc are all dressed up. The interactions with the public is amazing as are the little shows they put on through out the day. Can't pick out a best one to me they were all excellent. Certainly worth a visit

Never happened because you have me wrong pick up place Although when I went to bus operators they changed date to 30th the driver tour guide was very good he told me about the wrong pick up place because a coach could not go near hotel entrance so I suggest you check all pick up choices
