Very good tour. Not much mention of slavery, which is quite common throughout the island at these 'plantations', i.e. slave labour camps. Well worth seeing as it's one of the few Jacobean homes in the western hemisphere.
Excellent tour. Well worth a visit. We went round with guide Asher, who was excellent. He made the tour with some humour and a huge amount knowledge
