Review of Beauvoir - Jefferson Davis Home & Presidential Library Tour

  • Gerald USA Sep 29 2017 06:06pm

    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! Guest Service Manager

    Wonderful Historic Venue

    Southern history could not be complete without the last home of Jefferson Davis included. The house tour guide really knew her stuff and the couple who showed us around the museum were beyond warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. Planning another trip back in the fall. Only negative comment I could make was the times listed on the web weren't accurate.

    This historic location is beautiful and has rebounded from Katrina. The grounds and the walk to the grave sites is great and the various flowers in bloom were lovely. The museum was amazing and informative.

    A step back in time

    This was the best 10.00(bought ticket online) I've spent in a very long time. We were passing through and only planned to spend an hour, and ended up spending 3. The hours is amazing, the library I cant even describe, but the grounds are so serene and peaceful. My favorite was the tribute to all the soldiers in the cemetery at the back of the property.
