Beautiful gardens- maybe a little longer time there.... we had to hurry through to have time to eat.

Wish we had more time at the plantation, but we'd also booked a city tour. The only criticism I have is we couldn't see well while on the bus, it would be nice if the buses had clear glass on the roof and sides, or a open 2nd deck that we could enjoy the sites better.
