Don't recall what we paid but it was quite reasonable. Well worth it.

We enjoyed the plantation tour very much but it would’ve worked better to leave at nine instead of 930 so we would’ve had more time to view the gardens before the tram tour at 11.We enjoyed the city van tour very much with a very knowledgeable guide

The guides at the plantation and on the bus were very good - especially Scott Holms who drove us out to the plantation.
