    Beauboir and 2018 Fall Muster Reenactment

    Outstanding time, a muse see when on the Gulf Coast. Museum was both educational and fun. 2018 Fall Muster Reenactment is something you have to experience.

    Overall a great time at the Polar Express movie night

    The venue did not have our reservation even though we bought our tickets WELL in advance. It took a little bit to get through the line. I would suggest more training on advanced tickets. Very little snacks for right after work and to get through the entire movie with small kids. We had to rush to get there and thought there would be at least food/snacks we could purchase. Overall a pretty good event and my kids loved it. So I can't ask for much more.

    Very informative 52 minute tour.

    We really enjoyed our house tour and spent some time at the rest of the gardens. Would have liked to see the Library, but the elevator was not running so we could not as my wife cannot do stairs. the only other issue was that when we booked online at our hotel, the Tripshock site stated that it was not necessary to print our tickets. Upon arrival at Beauvoir the agent was very upset that we did not have a printed copy or one on our cell phone, even though we did have our reference number.

    Hi Gerald, Thank you for booking with us and I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the tour! The elevator was down for maintenance that date so we are sorry about the inconvenience. Most of the activities and attractions that we book for do not require printed vouchers, so you should've only needed to show the confirmation on your phone. I suspect it was simply a matter of training, but will reach out to the manager at Beauvoir to ensure future guests don't encounter this same scenario when they visit. Please feel free to contact me should you have any other feedback or questions. Thank you again for booking with us and letting us know about your experience. Hope to see you back soon! TripShock!

    True Exploration of Americana Experience

    Wonderful piece of American Experience. Touch history of the then, to know what we were with path to where we are. Architecture and living in another time period. Artifacts galore expressing war, politics, family and peace. Friendly staff from first greeting, through the tour and "finis" at the gift shop. Extensive library chocked full of knowledge, if you dare to read some challenging literature. Lastly, sit in a rocking chair, on the porch, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, reminiscent of the one that "the man with out a country" did.
