    Genuinely historic site, of a great thinker's very personal home. They have special tours that include the upper floor, but you have to book those well in advance. Guides are great.

    An amazingly beautiful place rich with history. The guided tours are wonderful and everything is also very well identified for anyone to walk around without a guide.

    Behind the scenes tour is excellent but if you can't do the stairs the basic house tour is very good. Our day including behind the scene tour lasted for 6 hours. Take your time and relish in the histo

    Always a beautiful historic site. Get your tickets early for tours or try to reserve online ahead of time. You can walk around the outside without a tour but can't go inside. Lots to see.

    Great tour but house is way smaller than you think. Beautiful grounds and great way to spend the day.

    I questioned weather the price for the behind the scenes would be worth it........IT Was!!! I'm so glad we did it. Small group tours that all through the house. Don't hesitate, book it!

    If you grew up here, you've been here a million times on school trips. Somehow, though, you'll always learn something new.

    The slavery and grounds and gardens tours are worth taking if you've got the time. A great way to learn about more than the house.

    Spend the entire day there to get your money's worth, if you just go on the house tour it is bit expensive.

    $25 per adult, just to get on the grounds. House tours require a timed ticket.

    Thomas Jefferson was a genius and a great American. He funded his own Presidential staff and purchased his own furniture. This non-profit organization receives no government funding for preservation.

    It's expensive, but pay the extra money for the new "secret tour." You get to see the 2nd and 3rd floors and the incredible dome room.
